He was named after Che Guevara.
|Jan-29-12|| ||plimko: Inarkiev is the top seeded player in Moscow Open (from 28 january to 5 february)|
In the first round a little surprise, Chigaev-Inarkiev 1/2, but a very good job from the teenager Maksim (born in 1996):

|Feb-14-12|| ||Refused: <walker: Initially I was sorry for the guy. Who wants to be named after a murderer?>|
Freedom fighter. He was named after a freedom fighter. But thanks for dropping in.
|Mar-31-12|| ||twinlark: Good result at the European Championships.|
|Dec-09-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy 28th birthday to GM Ernesto Inarkiev.|
|Sep-30-14|| ||Penguincw: Congratz to Ernesto Inarkiev for winning the Baku Open (2014) on tiebreaks, ahead of Constantin Lupulescu. His TPR was slightly better (2528 vs. 2512). Both finished with 7/9. It wasn't easy, as Inarkiev, the 2nd seed had to beat 3rd seed Alexander Areshchenko with black in the final round to secure it.|
Inarkiev gained a solid 9 rating points in the tournament, which should help him in his quest back to the 2700 club.
|Feb-03-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Ernesto Ianarkiev for remaining the last player at the Moscow Open (2015) tournament to remain at a perfect score (4/4). The average rating of his opponents were about 2432 vs. his 2675, so he had it easy. He gained 8.2 rating points.|
Unfortunately, he has black against Korobov (2687) tomorrow, so his perfect record will probably be ruined.
|Feb-08-15|| ||Penguincw: And congrats to Inarkiev (my apologizes for the above typo) for winning the Moscow Open (2015) tournament. He went a perfect 5/5 before Mamedov held him to a draw. However, he bounced right back with a win against top seed Nepomniactchi, followed by drawing Petrosian. Entering the last round, he could've simply drew with Lysyj to clinch a share of first place, but he beat him to finish a full point (8/9) ahead of 2nd seed Vallejo Pons, 4th seed Korobov (who he beat with black) and Petrosian and Artemiev. 12 players finished a half point behind them, including Nepo.|
His undefeated +7 score (9 rounds) against 2570 opposition was a 2921 TPR and helped him gain 23.5 rating points. On the live ratings, that's enough to rise him to 2698.5, which will be rounded to 2699 (assuming he doesn't play in this month again). He also gained 18 spots and is now world #47.
|Feb-15-15|| ||sonia91: An interesting interview:
|May-09-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Ernesto Inarkiev for winning the Russian Team Rapid Championship (2015) with a score of 8.5/9.|
|Aug-14-15|| ||sonia91: Inarkiev is the last FIDE president's World Cup nominee: http://www.bakuworldcup2015.com/con...|
|Aug-14-15|| ||fisayo123: Pretty random nominee. Seems to get quite a lot of favors. I remember him being invited to the Petrosian memorial.|
|Aug-14-15|| ||sonia91: I agree with you, there are higher rated players who didn't manage to get into the World Cup (eg. Li Chao, Howell...), but as to Petrosian memorial he qualified via Russian Championship Higher League (http://chess-news.ru/en/node/16960)|
|May-20-16|| ||Troller: Currently Inarkiev is jumping to #33 live spot in the world following outstanding results in Russian Team Championship (2016)/Ernesto Inarkiev and the ongoing European Individual Championship (2016)/Ernesto Inarkiev. +33.9 pts elo!|
|May-21-16|| ||Appaz: Another win in the 9th round puts him at an astonishing +44 Elo in just three weeks!|
|May-21-16|| ||Chessgames Bookie: Will Inarkiev take clear first at the European Individual Championship (2016)? Place your bets:|
EICC rd 10: Inarkiev Special
|May-21-16|| ||Penguincw: Damn, there goes another one! Inarkiev beats Kovalenko in a tight game, as it was pretty much even 'til Kovalenko slipped around the 5th hour of play.|
Inarkiev now at 2730, ranked 27th on the live ratings! He gets white vs. Goganov tomorrow, heading into the penultimate round, up a full point on 2 opponents. A win clinches at least shared first.
|May-23-16|| ||sonia91: Congratulations to Ernesto on becoming European Champion!|
|May-23-16|| ||Pulo y Gata: Viva La Revolucion!|
|May-23-16|| ||Penguincw: Ernesto Inarkiev does it! He wins the EICC with a score of 9/11 (+7,-0,=4), half a point ahead of Kovalenko.|
He also gained 25.9 points, in addition to 16.8 from the Russian Premier League, has him at a career high 2728.7. Generally, the top 23 from the EICC qualify for the next World Cup, so I imagine he just qualified for the 2017 World Cup, so congrats.
|May-23-16|| ||cro777: Ernesto does it with a little help from his supporters:|
|May-24-16|| ||cro777: "There is no sincerer love than the love of food." (George Bernard Shaw)|
The hotel which hosted Inarkiev celebrates his victory with a special cake!
|Jul-10-16|| ||sonia91: He will play a match with Boris Gelfand in Magas, Ingushetia, Russia on July 12-22: http://www.chessdom.com/match-boris...|
|Jan-21-17|| ||sonia91: He will play in the FIDE Grand Prix: http://www.chessdom.com/ernesto-ina...|
|Jan-22-17|| ||Mr. V: The FIDE Grand Prix and its constantly-changing timeline seem to be remarkably unnoticed by the online chess community.|
