Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: =1st and 2nd on tiebreak also at the 2015 World U14 Championship:
Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: Happy 14th birthday!

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

Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: This boy achieved another GM norm at the European Individual Chess Championship (2017) with a performnce of 2618:
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.

Premium Chessgames Member
  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!
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.
Premium Chessgames Member
  wordfunph: he scalped Karjakin, Dreev and Shirov.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: He will play in Wijk aan Zee Challengers 2019:

Recently he played on the top board for Russia in the U16 Chess Olympiad in Turkey, but it was not a great tournament for both him and his team (which was the defending champion).

Dec-09-18  paavoh: Great finish 10,5/13 for the shared first in the EU Rapid Championship.
Jan-14-19  ketchuplover: Down goes Keymer!
