|Jun-23-05|| ||Pawsome: As of today (23/06/05) this fellow is among the leaders with 4.5 out of 6 in the European Individual Championship at the break. Moreover, he hasn't had an easy schedule, playing against six players all of whom have about 200 ELO pts higher than he does.|
|Jul-01-05|| ||ARMENIA: It is a very funny fact but we were both born on the same day, in the same months and on the same year...
But your ELO is highter than mine even though I am better looking :)
1997 Lvov, forth round with black pieces... Rings a bell? Well, just 59 moves but black was victorious...
Your performance was fantastic! I am taking my hat off for you... Times have changed but your humor is still with me...|

Very good performance in FIDE World Cup 05|
|Dec-11-05|| ||ARMENIA: Levan... Great performance in the World Chess Cup! A little disoppointing that you couldn't make to the final 16 but you made a great statement that Georgia has a new shining star that is taking charge! Great performance... amazing game against Milov; two more fantasic finishes against Gerfand! My favorite of all being your game against the Indian GM Surya Sekar with the black pieces!!!!!!! Just amazing ability; amazing composure!
I wish you the best in the future! Just keep pounding up the ladder! I may have the risk of saying that you are a brighter star than Karjakin, Carsen or Radjabov! Stay humble and just put that unforgettable smile after each time you defeat another player! My best wishes... Levon|

|May-05-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Levan Pantsulaia for remaining the only perfect player remaining at the Nakhchivan Open. He entered as the 13th seed, and was one of just 2 players perfect after 3 rounds. He won the R4 meeting against the other 3/3 guy (Ulvi Bajarani), and the 8 players at 2.5/3 all drew their games, so he is now a full point ahead of 13 other players entering R5/9 (or, the round before the preantepenultimate round).|
So far, he's gained 11.7 rating points. In Round 5, he'll face 4th seed Vladimir Onischuk with white.
|May-10-15|| ||Penguincw: After starting with a 4/4 run, he beat Onischuk with white, but then lost in R6 to the eventual winner, Eltaj Safarli. He then drew the next 3 games, and finished in sole third with 6.5/9 (+5,-1,=3), half a point behind Safarli and Guseinov.|
He also gained 12.5 rating points overall (2603 -> 2615.5). Also worth noting, out of the all the participants in the top 18 of the standings (i.e. scored 5.5/9 or better), he had the highest average rating of opponents, with 2539.
