|Dec-12-07|| ||dx9293: I guess my comment above about Shirov not being the right kind of player for the World Cup was right on :-) Oops.|
|Jul-25-08|| ||Phoenix: Onischuk is having a solid tournament so far in Biel. +1=1 with white, and =3 with black. One point shy of the leaders at the half-way mark. With three whites and 2 blacks in the second half, he is well positioned to make a run for first for the second straight year. Good luck, Alexander!|
|Jul-26-08|| ||zoren: he had a good run in 2007, somehow hes playing a bit worse in 08.|
|Jul-28-08|| ||Phoenix: Since my last update, Onischuk has lost two in a row, both with white. :(|
|Nov-25-08|| ||whiskeyrebel: Bronze is beautiful baby, good job in Dresden.|
|Dec-23-08|| ||Karpova: Alexander Onischuk won the XXI Carlos Torre Repetto "In Memoriam" tournament 2008: http://www.carlostorre.org.mx/inici...|
|Feb-08-09|| ||nescio: In Moscow Onischuk and Tiviakov decided to a quick draw today which guarantees Onischuk at least shared first place. It's up to Iordachescu, Inarkiev, Nepomniatchi and Korotylev to try to catch him. Games can be followed at http://www.russiachess.org/online/|
|Feb-08-09|| ||nescio: The four players mentioned drew each other, so Onischuk wins with 7.5 out of 9, followed by a group of players with 7. Some others currently at 6 may also end up at 7 points. Not all games are finished yet.|
|Feb-10-09|| ||stanleys: Congratulations to Alexander for winning the Moscow Open!|
The tournament was pretty strong and interesting - it's a pity that it didn't get the attention of CG or chessbase(well they finally published a report after the tournament was over)

|May-28-10|| ||laskersteinitz: Onischuk is in the Live Rating List: http://chess.liverating.org/. Has he ever broken 2700 FIDE before?|
|May-28-10|| ||laskersteinitz: Apparently not...his peak is 2699, which he has reached on three occasions (http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev...).|
|Jun-01-10|| ||redribbon3700: Today he should be on the list as a 2700 player on FIDE! Great job.|
|Sep-03-10|| ||ketchuplover: Happy Birthday Mr. Onischuk.|
|Nov-09-10|| ||HeMateMe: Congratulations to Oni, winning this tournament. He is 2006 USA champion, and played board 3 for the USA in the last Olympiad.|
|Jul-31-11|| ||sisyphus: I saw Alex Onischuk today, at the Fairfax Open, a two-day Class B swiss. I knew he'd lived here in Manassas, Virginia, for quite a while; but he'd never appeared at local events, even big ones like the Atlantic Open or Eastern Open, which always attract some GMs. |
Anyway, he entered this weekend tournament, just four days after finishing the World Team Championship in China. He had to be jet-lagged.
And he wound up equal first with 3.5/4, tied with IM Tegshsuren Enkhbat.
|Sep-03-12|| ||wordfunph: "The first time I played against Kasparov was in blitz games. I won with black, and thought I'd do pretty well. Then I lost 25 games in a row. I was already a GM, and didn't think I could lose 25 games in a row to anyone!"|
- GM Alexander Onischuk
happy birthday, "The Rock"!
|Sep-09-12|| ||ketchuplover: Thanks for your olympiad effort :)|
