She is a former Women's World Chess Championship runner-up and won the women's Chinese Chess Championship five times, in 1988, 1991, 1995, 1999 and 2004.

She finished seventh at the 1991 Women's Interzonal Tournament in Subotica to qualify for the 1992 Women's Candidates Tournament, held in Shanghai. In this latter event she placed fifth out of nine participants. Qin reached the final of the Women's World Chess Championship 2000 in New Delhi after she sequentially knocked out Masha Klinova, Ketevan Arakhamia-Grant, Ketino Kachiani-Gersinska, Corina Peptan and Alisa Marić. She faced in the final defending champion Xie Jun, who retained her title by winning 2½-1½ in a four-game match. Also in 2000, Qin finished second in the Asian Women's Championship in Udaipur.[3]

Qin played for the Chinese team at the Women's Chess Olympiad in 1990, 1992 and 1994, winning each time the team bronze medal. In the 1992 Olympiad she also won the individual bronze medal thanks to her score of 77,3% (six wins, five draws and no losses) on board three.[4]
