  wordfunph: congrats! Bartel wins 2011 Polish Championship by chessbase..

Oct-02-11  waustad: With 6 1/2 out of 7 in the ECC, he'll be picking up some rating points. A 2844 performance rating and winning the board 3 prize can't hurt his career.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Bartel in a 3 way tie for first, with 4 half a point back and like 11 one full point behind. Tomorrow, he plays an important game with the black pieces against co-leader Korobov, while the other co-leader, Eljanov has black against Andreikin.
Feb-15-12  yesnomaybeidontknow: Congratulations, Mateusz!
Winner of The Aeroflot Open!

Unless he decided to participate in the Reykjavik Open, then I guess it will be European Champ., as mentioned by <polarmis>.
