  Chnebelgrind: youngest Swiss ever to get the title of a FIDE Master. Congratulation
Feb-02-12  MrSpock: Congratulation Nico :-)))
Hopp Schwyz!
May-28-14  diagonal: Nico is now an IM - and made his first GM norm at the Dubai Open 2014, being for six days <the youngest swiss player ever to achieve a GM norm>, surpassed by Noel Studer.
Nov-18-14  AlexandraThess: This guy drew with legend Ulf Andersson in Gibnralatar this year.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to Nico Georgiadis for his performance at the Reykjavik Open (2015). He scored 6.5/10, but the most notable thing was that he was only one of 2 players (the other Eljanov) in the tournament that didn't lose to L'Ami (it was a draw).
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Nico Georgiadis.
Jul-24-17  BIDMONFA: Nico Georgiadis


Jul-28-17  diagonal: Nico Georgiadis is Grandmaster (elect), he has all three gm norms, and already surpassed the Elo barrier of the needed 2500 some months ago:

Congratulations! Go ahead at Biel GMT :)

Interview with Nico Georgiadis in a popular swiss television show called "Aeschbacher" (named after the guy who asks the questions, he quite quickly pointed out that he doesn't understand anything from chess) from 2014, in swiss german language (11 minutes):

Portrait in another popular television program "Glanz & Gloria" from 2015, in german language (3 minutes):

May-14-18  diagonal: Magnus Carlsen from Norway, the reigning World Chess Champion and World's Number One, will play again at International Biel Chess Festival in July / August 2018:

In a double round robin, <Carlsen> will face in the Grandmaster Tournament <Mamedyarov>, <Vachier-Lagrave>, <Svidler>, <Navara>, and...

<Nico Georgiadis>, who had a good tournament at Biel Invitation last year. Hopp Schwiiz!! :)

  virginmind: And Nico has just drawned Magnus, congratulations, a great result for him!
Aug-01-18  TITIKIZA: He played a suspicious b3 move in a drawn game against Magnus. He resigned one move later.
Aug-01-18  fisayo123: Yeah that was an insane maybe even suspicious blunder. No words.
Aug-01-18  JimNorCal: Looks like he got overly excited.

Near move 40 it looked like he could force MC to repeat moves but perhaps he dreamed of winning.

A sad blunder to finish with but doubtless many memories and lessons learned.

Aug-01-18  technical win: That'll teach him a thing or two.
