  wordfunph: FM Boruchovsky's gallant stand against monster Shakh!

Mamedyarov vs A Boruchovsky, 2012


Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: He picked up over 65 elo in the European Individual Champs.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Boruchovsky also beat Boris Savchenko in the last round.

His TPR was 2650. In fact, he performed so well, that it was good enough for a GM norm!

Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: grats to FM Boruchovsky for snatching a GM norm plus a whopping +65.7 elo!

Boruchovsky also won a swag of games in the powerful Israeli National League so he's already been jostling elbow to elbow with IMs and GMs. These results bring him right up near the top of the U16 division not far behind 1997-born almost-GMs Suri Vaibhav and Grigoriy Oparin, and maybe even ahead of IM Mikhail Antipov.

He has a way to go to catch up with the likes of the top U16s like the 1996-born GMs Nyzhnyk, Rapport and Dubov, but a few more rating periods like this one and that could be sooner than we think.
