PASCAL CHARBONNEAU

[what is this?]
Pascal Charbonneau was born in Montreal, Canada in 1983 and was coached by Richard Berube in his earlier school years. His younger sister is Anne-Marie Charbonneau and IM Irina Krush is his ex-wife.

In 1998, he won the Canadian Cadet Championship with 7/9. He tied for 1st-3rd with 5.5/6 (in individual scores) at the Pan-Am intercollegiate championship while playing 4th board for the 2nd place finishing U of Maryland, Baltimore county (A) team in 2001, behind their 1st place finishing B-team. He is a two-time Canadian champion (2002 - winning both the Canadian Closed (he won a 2-game play-off versus Kevin Spraggett by 1.5/0.5) and Canadian Open - and again the Closed in 2004 (a tie for 1st-2nd with Eric Lawson was decided by a play-off sweep of a 2-game match)). He was Quebec champion at the age of 16 and Canadian Champion at the age of 18. In 2006, he achieved the title of grandmaster by earning his third GM norm by winning the 2006 Chicago Winter Invitational with 6/9. He has represented Canada at major team events such as Olympiad (2008) , 37th Chess Olympiad (2006) , 36th Olympiad (2004) , Bled Olympiad (2002) and Chess Olympiad (2000), accumulating 26 points in 52 team games. In 2008, while playing for the New York Knights, he won the most improved player award of the USCL (4), and previously while playing for Baltimore in 2005, he made the top board of the top selected USCL all-star team.

Jul-08-06  e4Newman: re: UBC simul

sigh! I wish I still lived on the west coast...hot ashes for trees

And a bit of good humour -
<Profanity and physical violence is not allowed except under extreme circumstances>

Nov-30-06  Dr.Lecter: Pascal plays the first board for New York Knights in US chess league. Too bad Knights lost to San Francisco Mechanics.
Feb-01-07  TheWhiteRider: As a French Canadian myself I am proud of his girl friend Krush over Akobian and now Kornchoi at the Gibraltar tournament. (Bravo, je vous souhait le meilleur.)
May-06-08  brankat: Happy Birthday Pascal!

  PhilFeeley: Does anybody know what Charbonneau is up to these days? Is he working in economics? His chess blog hasn't been updated since 2006.
Apr-07-09  Dredge Rivers: <PhilFeeley>

Yeah! Whatever happened to Mr. Krush? :)

  PhilFeeley: Now Pascal's blog no longer exists. He's playing in this year's Foxwoods Open. He was probably concentrating on his studies before now.

As for "Mr. Krush", I was discussing this with Frederic Friedel (of Chessbase) and he said they were not married, despite the reference I have to it in Paul Hoffman's book "King's Gambit" (p. 418). Mr. Friedel did not explain.

Apr-12-09  Dredge Rivers: <PhilFeeley> <he said they were not married>

So, Irina Krush is still available? SWEEEEEET! :)

Apr-12-09  Open Defence: <So, Irina Krush is still available? > not married does not mean still available :)
Apr-12-09  Dredge Rivers: <OpenDefence> <not married does not mean still available>

You mean, Quagmire was wrong? SOB!

But hey, at least Eliza Dushku is still on the market! :)

May-06-09  gauer: Happy birthday, GM Charbonneau.

May-06-09  TheChessGuy: Bon anniversaire, M. Charbonneau!!
May-06-09  jackpawn: So is he married to Krush or not?
May-23-09  supertimchan: The blog listed is no longer valid. Please remove it.
Jul-20-09  Dredge Rivers: Any relation to Joe?

  PhilFeeley: What happend to this guy? He's dropped of the map. Did he officially retire from chess, like Mark Bluvshtein? Sad day for Canada to lose two GMs.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: I think Iread somewhere that he got a regular job, something to do with computers or financial services, not sure.
Aug-21-12  Troller: His last rated games were in Bermuda Open 2011. He is listed as inactive on the FIDE rating list, but will be Canada's current #5 if he starts playing again.

  PhilFeeley: He played in the U.S. chess league this summer. I guess he hasn't given up the game yet, unlike Mark Bluvshtein.
