Oct-14-15  BIDMONFA: Andrey Esipenko


Nov-05-15  sonia91: =1st and 2nd on tiebreak also at the 2015 World U14 Championship:
Mar-22-16  sonia91: Happy 14th birthday!

He achieved a GM norm in the Aeroflot Open (2016).

Jun-11-17  sonia91: This boy achieved another GM norm at the European Individual Chess Championship (2017) with a performnce of 2618:
Sep-26-17  sonia91: Esipenko won the gold medal in the World U16:

He is also the highest rated player, at 2540, of the entire 2017 WYCC event.

Someone should also add in the bio that he was part of the winning World Team at the USA vs Rest of the World 2017 match for juniors.

Nov-13-17  sonia91: He achieved his final GM norm in Germany:
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: If he was 2540, why doesn't he have the GM title already? He's "only" 2438 in Riyadh.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Okay, I guess 2438 is his rapid rating.
Dec-28-17  ketchuplover: Down goes Karjakin!
Dec-28-17  sonia91: <If he was 2540, why doesn't he have the GM title already?>

A 2500+ rating doesn't guarantee the GM title, you need also 3 <norms>, which Esipenko has fulfilled in Germany recently as I posted just above your comment.

Jan-25-18  waustad: So will he count for a player like Dragnev as a GM for norm purposes? It probably won't matter, since if he gets another GM norm at Gibtel, he'll have played enough GMs.
