YURI DROZDOVSKIJ
(born May-22-1984, 33 years old) Ukraine
PRONUNCIATION:
[what is this?]
Yuri Drozdovskij was awarded the Grandmaster title in 2004. In 1997, he was European U14 champion. In 2004, he was Ukraine U20 champion. In 2008, he took 2nd place in the Ukrainian championship. He placed sufficiently well in the European Individual Championships (2010) to qualify to play in the World Cup (2011), where he eliminated Russian GM Alexander Motylev in an epic struggle that culminated in a win in the Armageddon blitz tiebreaker after draws in the classical games, the 25 minutes and 10 minute rapid game matches, and the blitz match. However, he bowed out in the second round to Italian GM Fabiano Caruana.
