|Sep-01-05|| ||iron maiden: Efimenko's won every one of his white games so far, so it's definitely too early for Areshchenko to relax.|
|Sep-06-05|| ||tamar: The report on the the championship is up
|Jan-06-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Alexander Areshchenko|
|Jun-15-10|| ||wordfunph: i read somewhere that he is called "The Monster"..|
|Jun-15-11|| ||waustad: That is one of the worst pictures I've seen of a player. Is he really that morose?|
|Aug-08-12|| ||twinlark: |
GM Areshchenko had done well to come 3rd in the Ukrainian Championship. Interesting to see only one page of kibitzing of a player who has breached the 2700 mark!
|Aug-08-12|| ||Eyal: <GM Areshchenko had done well to come 3rd in the Ukrainian Championship.>|
He's done even better, to come 2nd (edged Volokitin on tiebreak - http://ukrchess.org.ua/turnir/ukr20...).
|Aug-08-12|| ||twinlark: Thanks <Eyal>. I've corrected the bio. I missed that on the crosstable here, his score is not complete.|
|Sep-07-12|| ||rapidcitychess: I have never heard of this guy.
It'd be nice to see him at Corus perhaps. Or is that Tata Steel? Or does it even exist anymore? Dang, never mind... Just some super-tournament.
Wonder how he would measure up.
|Jun-15-13|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday!|
|May-20-14|| ||Conrad93: Araschenko is a well-known player to those who are serious about chess.|
It's hard to find an opening book that doesn't include his games.
|May-22-14|| ||N0B0DY: <Araschenko is a well-known player...> For real?|
|May-22-14|| ||perfidious: Cain't be much of a playah--Ah ain't nevah heard o' this heah guy!|
|May-22-14|| ||Conrad93: I said only for those "Serious about chess."|
|May-22-14|| ||perfidious: Which you, very clearly, are not.|
|May-23-14|| ||Conrad93: Which, I very clearly am. Otherwise I would not be a member of ChessGames.com.|
|May-23-14|| ||N0B0DY: Surely, there is increasingly a need for enlightened philosophers...|
|Jun-15-14|| ||dark.horse: <waustad> That is one of the worst pictures I've seen of a player. Is he really that morose?|
Reminds me of some photographs I've seen of Alekhine.
|Jun-15-14|| ||perfidious: <dark horse> Quite true; the look on Areschenko's face fairly screams 'I've got to play this bugger <again>?! What did I ever do to deserve such a fate?'|
|Jun-15-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 28th birthday to GM Alexander Areshchenko.|
|Jul-05-15|| ||Penguincw: Great performance by Alexander Areshchenko at the Porticcio Open, as he scored 7.5/9 (+7,-1,=1) against 2327 opposition. One of his 7 wins were against Bacrot (2695).|
|Aug-30-15|| ||PhilFeeley: White must have lost on time on this one. He had a relentless attack for over 20 moves, but black defended tenaciously. Nevertheless, the computer eval after move 58 was over +20. I was unable to determine if white lost on time or what, as the clock on the live site I was watching (chessdom.com) was wonky after move 40:|

|Aug-30-15|| ||PhilFeeley: I just checked chess-results.com and they list it as 1-0. Chessdom has 0-1. I'm inclined to believe chess-results as the game I watched was completely winning for white. Why chessdom has 0-1 is a mystery.|
|Aug-30-15|| ||fisayo123: I watched it live too. It was a very exciting game. Grandelius got crushed. I'm also inclined to believe chess-results has it right.|
