Nov-20-14  BIDMONFA: Benjamin Gledura

GLEDURA, Benjamin

Feb-01-16  fisayo123: Beat (an out of sorts) Vishy Anand. He's 16.
Feb-01-16  Billy Vaughan: An attrative, minimalist win at that. Shades of Carlsen.

  sonia91: He also defeated Karpov in the Highlander Cup (a rapid ko tournament) in Budapest at the Global Chess Festival organised by Judit Polgar last year. So Gledura has beat two former world champions so far (although one at rapid)!

  diagonal: Gledura wins the closed <Magistral de Barcelona 2017> (ten players) as first on tie-break above top-seeded Frenchman Fressinet:
