  PhilFeeley: Donchenko repeats his win at Groningen. He should get his GM title soon.
Feb-13-15  SimonWebbsTiger: He got that last norm today at the tournament held in Århus, Denmark. With a round to spare even! Well done to the teen.
Feb-13-15  twinlark: <SimonWebbsTiger>

Good info. I've updated his bio accordingly.

Feb-13-15  SimonWebbsTiger: @<Twinlark>

And they say Friday the 13th is an unlucky day.

  Penguincw: Congrats to Alexander Donchenko for upsetting Naiditsch in R2 of the French Team Championships.

Naiditsch vs A Donchenko, 2015

Unfortunately, "Vandoeuvre-Les-Nancy" still lost to "Bischwiller" 5-3, but a 2 point loss is not bad for a team rated 162 points lower.

  Penguincw: Donchenko with another upset, this time downing Matlakov (2694) with black.

M Matlakov vs A Donchenko, 2015

However, just like above, his team still lost to "Clichy", this time 5 1/2-2 1/2. Of course, there was a 248 rating point mismatch.
