Among Zhang's more notable results are silver medals at the 1996 and 1998 World Junior Chess Championships, first in the 2001 Chinese Championship, 8.5/12 at the 2002 Chess Olympiad in Bled, and first with 11/13 at the Corus B tournament in Wijk aan Zee in 2003, three points ahead of his nearest rival. This result qualified him for the prestigious main Wijk aan Zee tournament in 2004, in which he scored 5/13. He won the 2005 Asian Championship to qualify for the FIDE World Cup held that year, where he beat Mikhail Kobalia in the first round but lost to Ivan Sokolov in the second round.

As of 2007, Zhang almost always opens with 1.e4 when he has White. As Black, he defends against 1.e4 with the Sicilian and the Ruy Lopez, and against 1. d4 with the Nimzo-Indian Defence, Queen's Indian Defence and Dutch Defence (see chess opening for an overview of these openings).
