  chancho: Had Zamora (now Sammour Hasbun) had the economic resources to further work on his game, he would (imo) have become a Grandmaster and a top US player.

(He did have a few lessons with Mikhail Tal)

He was around 13 years of age when he played this game and the one below:

J Medina-Zamora vs J Bonin, 1991

(he also beat Gata Kamsky, Roman Dzindzichashvili, and Patrick Wolff around this time)

Dec-27-11  TheBish: He was just 11 when he played this game, according to Larry Christiansen in "Storming the Barricades".
Aug-12-14  Ke2: Mutual blunders on move 11,
11. f3!
11... e3!
Aug-12-14  Ke2: Awesome finish though.
Jan-30-22  Granny O Doul: The moves here have been entered wrong. Aside from the extreme unlikelihood of the 12-year-old Jorge overlooking 11. f3, I remember him showing the game just afterward and pointing out that after (as actually played) 10...0-0 11. Nb3 Bg4, 12. Qd2 would be met by ...e3 13. fe Ne4 (Jorge Sr. argued forcefully for 13...Bxe3, but he was voted down by the others at the table).
