[what is this?]

World U16 - World Youth Championship (2012) - Champion 2012; IM (2012) ; GM (2013).

While he was still untitled, IM Eliseev came =2nd in the Moscow Open 2012 with a TPR of 2762 against opponents amongst whom there was only one other non-GM (IM Alexey Goganov rated 2497) finishing in the top 20, and presumably gained a GM norm for his effort. He also scored 6/9, placing =4th, at the 2012 Moscow Championship, narrowly missing a 2nd GM norm. In April 2012, he came =1st with 7/9 in the Russian Boys U16 Higher League Championship. In October he scored 6/9 at the Chigorin Memorial (2012), winning his 2nd GM norm and in November 2012, he won the U16 World Championship outright with a score of 9/11. In June 2013, he placed =3rd (7th on tiebreak) at the 66th Russian Championship Higher League (2013), gaining his third GM norm and the title, and just missing out on qualifying for the 2013 Russian Superfinal.

Eliseev died in November 2016 after falling from a balcony on the 12th floor of a Moscow apartment block.

  wordfunph: 2762 TPR for untitled 15-year-old 2435-rated Urii Eliseev - simply amazing..
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: Wonder how he can have such a high rating without at least an FM title? Perhaps he doesn't want one?

  cro777: 20-year old GM Urii Eliseev (2582) has won The XII International RSSU Chess Cup "Мoscow Open-2016" with 7.5/9.

His one loss was the game of the event - the Four Queens Game against Timofeev:

Artyom Timofeev (kibitz #31)

  Beholder: Died yesterday 26.11.2016. Fallen from his own 12th-floor apartment's balcony.


The last one is the official RCF site.

Nov-27-16  siggemannen: Damn, that's sad :(
RIP Ura, you had great talent

  Ron: Another news report:
Premium Chessgames Member
  Caissanist: Horrible. Every parent's worst nightmare.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: I cannot imagine--nor do I wish to--what agony this young man's friends and family must feel in the aftermath of this.
Nov-27-16  Eastfrisian: R.I.P. really too sad and too young.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Rest in peace Grandmaster, you've gone too soon!

A promissing young chess grandmaster, the winner of the 2016 Moscow Open A, was a practitioner of the extreme sport of parkour. The aim of this training discipline is to get from one point to another in a complex environment.

Eliseev died after falling from the 12th storey of his apartment building in Moscow while trying from a window to reach the balcony of a neighbouring apartment.

  moronovich: That is very very sad...


Premium Chessgames Member
  saffuna: Very sad, yes.

But if he wanted thrills like that, why not just take up rock climbing, which can be done safely?

Nov-27-16  nok: Somehow I'm reminded of this:
Premium Chessgames Member
  siamesedream: It's kinda suicide.


Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: A popular Russian TV channel "Russia 24" reported about the tragic parkour accident (late on Saturday night Eliseev attempted to jump from a window to reach the balcony of a neighbouring apartment):

Eliseev was a chess, but also an extreme sport of parkour, enthusiast. He liked to demonstrate the strength of mind to carry on in spite of danger:

  Beholder: Once again since Topalov's deplorable behavior in Elista has chess entered the mainstream media for all the wrong reasons.

DailyMail is one thing, they "report", if one can call it that, on any number of bizarre happenings, but when an article shoots to the very top of Most Read on BBC News:'s quite another.

"Russian chess champion Yuri Yeliseyev dies in Moscow fall", and, to make matters worse, inside that article there is a link to another one titled "Does anybody still care about chess?".

That's definitely not how GM Eliseev envisioned his legacy I'm sure. Let's hope at least that unfortunate accident will provide a valuable life lesson to other young people of today.

You may be brilliant but if you're careless and foolhardy your brilliance might not matter one bit in the end. Sad but true.

Nov-28-16  N0B0DY: Sounds like a nominee for a Darwin Award 2016
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Tragic.

It's a little surprising that a GM would take up such extreme parkour. Surely a chess player should understand the inevitability of blundering. But obviously the sport must have been addictive.

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: It's less than a year ago that Eliseev played Bukavshin in the Russian Cup Final, which was won by the latter. The decisive game: I Bukavshin vs U Eliseev, 2015
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I have to agree with <siamesedream>, as the rush of challenging death has to have some underlying sense of inevitably losing.
