|Feb-02-12|| ||MrSpock: Congratulation Nico :-)))
|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.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||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).|
|Jan-22-16|| ||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: http://www.swisschess.ch/news-112/d...|
Congratulations! Go ahead at Biel GMT :)

|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!! :)
|Jul-25-18|| ||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.|
