  twinlark: How does someone get to nearly 2600 without picking up a GM title? He should pick up a (or another) GM norm at the Russian Chess Championships Higher League (2012) as he already has 6/9.
Jun-27-12  Kinghunt: He definitely picked one up. I'm not sure how many more he needs, but I suspect it won't be long until he's awarded the title.
Oct-30-12  vinidivici: i cant find article about this guy in Wikipedia. Maybe he's still teenager.

2600 but isnt a GM...maybe he has to get norms first.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Wikipedia are inconsistent in their coverage of players; I proposed two articles be deleted there on players barely stronger than myself, and assuredly nowhere near the strength of this young player.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Troller: This guy has now crossed 2600 and is still not a GM.
Nov-01-12  waustad: He has 2 GM norms:

His play at Chigorin Memorial (2012) could clinch the title.

  twinlark: Finally got his GM title.

  wordfunph: solo champ in recently concluded PSC/Pure Gold International Chess Challenge Open.

  cro777: In round 2 of the World Cup, Anton Demchenko, who needed a win with the white pieces to stay in the tournament, offered the draw to Kramnik as early as move 10. He had immediately escaped to his hotel room, but over the phone he explained to

"Yesterday I was exhausted after the tiebreak. In the evening I felt ill, but in the morning it seemed to be going better. I was going to put up a fight. However, during the game I felt ill again and I realized it was impossible to play any good chess, so I offered a draw." (
