[what is this?]

FIDE awarded Brunello the Grandmaster title in 2010. He won the Tata Steel Group C (2013) with an 11/13 score, one of the best performances in the 75-year history of the Wijk aan Zee tournament. An excellent 7.5/11 result in the European Individual Championship (2013) qualified him to play in the World Cup (2013), but he lost to Pavel Eljanov in the first round and was eliminated from the contest. Brother of Marina Brunello and Roberta Brunello.

He is the author of the book "Attacking the Spanish" (2009).

Jan-27-13  Karposian: Winner of Tata Steel C-group 2013. Bravo Sabino!! E forza Italia!!
Jan-27-13  Karpova: Impressive win with 11/13 (+9 =4 -0): Tata Steel (Group C) (2013)

Performance of 2764 (http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...)

Jul-28-13  SimonWebbsTiger: Sabino must have had some birthday luck his way. In round 1 of the Politiken Cup (28 July) 2013, he won an endgame despite the material being rook and four pawns versus his rook and bishop!
Aug-06-13  Karpova: In Fabiano's shadow, he has established himself as Italy's 2nd best player and with another strong showing at Politiken Cup (2013) with a 7th place (places 2-8 shared 8.0/10 points - http://www.ksu.dk/politiken_cup/tur... -) with a score of +8 =0 -2 and a performance of 2627 - http://chess-results.com/tnr81987.a...

His new rating will be 2602 according to the official site http://www.ksu.dk/politiken_cup/tur...

  Penguincw: Congratz to Sabino Brunello for winning the Durban Open 2014 (and also 18.4 rating points)! He finished with 9/11, edging out Sahaj Grover on the 2nd tiebreaks 65.5-62.5 (whatever it was). Brunello would've never won if it weren't for the black draw against Grover in Round 4 or the white win against Gupta in Round 7. Gupta finished half a point behind.

The only other Italian at the event was Axel Rombladoni, who finished with 7/11.

Jul-13-16  CountryGirl: Interesting player. Despite authoring a nice book on the Spanish, his record as black with this appears woeful. He seems to have much better stats with the Caro-Kann or Sicilian. ChessGames does not have many French Advance games of his, but apparently he is an absolute killer with this system, scoring over 80%.
