[what is this?]
IM (1998); Grandmaster (2000).

He repeated his success in the European theater with 1st (on tiebreak) at the European Individual Championships (2013), scoring 8/11 once again qualifying for the World Cup, this time the World Cup (2013). Soon afterwards in the 2013 Ukrainian League, he helped his team - the Law Academy of Kharkiv - to first place with a perfect (team) score of 9/9.

Moiseenko was due to meet Ahmed Adly in the first round of the 2013 World Cup, but won by a walkover when Adly was unable to secure a visa in time for the event.

In October 2013, he placed second behind Alexey Dreev in the Indonesian Open with 7.5/11, having lost a game on forfeit to Dreev in an earlier round.

  Peligroso Patzer: Here are a few annotations to the critical phase of today's decisive game in the Arctic Chess Challenge. (The eventual winner, Moiseenko, actually stood worse for most of the middle game.)

GM Alexander Moiseenko (UKR) (2641) - GM Mikhail Gurevich (TUR) (2633)

<acirce: Incredible - Moiseenko once again escaped defeat against a top player. This time Grischuk not only failed to win a won position, but even lost.>

Here is a link to the referenced game: Grischuk vs A Moiseenko, 2005.

Sep-05-09  timhortons: GM moiseenko is getting massacred at montreal..

when he joined the aeroflot tournament 2009 i bet he will win it and he won it together with bacrot. I was expecting a lot from him in this tournament but his not just very lucky each game.

Sep-08-09  timhortons: GM moiseenko won the blitz event held after the TIM standard time competition is over..

http://cheszpatzerblog.blogspot.com...

his latest picture..2009 montreal

with his thick glasses and round face he looks mature in photos but GM moiseenko looks younger than this in person.

i just chat with him at icc and his next tournament is european cup.

Feb-05-10  timhortons: Goodluck in aeroflot!

I remember well that GM moiseenko is a canadian champion, yes! 2008 canadian open champion and he did win the last year blitz tournament conducted after tourneo international de montreal.

btw, GM moiseenko is a defending champion in aeroflot, yes as he is the co winner of last years aeroflot!

Goodluck and i hope will se you again playing in quebec!

  Jambow: I don't know much about him but he just entered the 2700 live elo club with a fury gaining 35+ points going to world #28 @ 2714 elo.

Interesting comments on this page regarding unethical behavior, not that I'm suggesting he has cheated by any means, only that a few flags that could be meaningless exist and scrutiny is in order.

If his ascent is legit as it most likely is wow what a run nice job Alexander welcome to the big boys club.
