Apr-06-10  Badmojo: I believe Vocaturo could spring up an attack and beat anyone in the world with the White pieces. He's like a heavyweight fighter with a huge right hand - one slip up and you're KO'd. There's great energy to his play.

But with Black, he's the one, more often than not, getting carried out of the ring.

  Tabanus: Yes indeed, winner of the Open Ciutat de Balaguer (Spain) 19-27 July 2010:

http://www.chess-results.com/tnr363..., congratulations!

Not bad for a 14th ranked, and ahead of six 2600+ GM's.

Jan-23-11  ketchuplover: He's leading group C at TataSteel
Jan-29-11  Whitehat1963: Running away with group C. I think we're gonna see a lot more from this gal in years to come!
Jan-29-11  Shams: <Whitehat1963> Daniele is a man, man.
Jan-29-11  Whitehat1963: Whooops!
Jan-29-11  Whitehat1963: Hard to tell from the photo or bio!
Jan-29-11  ketchuplover: He's invisible which really freaks out his opponents.
Jan-30-11  Whitehat1963: I imagine.
Jan-30-11  crazybird: The winner of Group C. Congrats and welcome to group B
Jan-30-11  fisayo123: Seems like he could be very good in the future.Caruana did say in an interview that we should be on the look out for him(Vocaturo)
Jan-30-11  splatty: Awesome result in Wijk Ann Zee group C outright, and only 2 draws in the whole tournament, congrats!
Feb-13-11  notyetagm: Wow, what a disaster for Vocaturro at Aerflot:
<+0 =1 -5>

Wow, that is a bad score. He gets paired out in Round 7.

  Penguincw: Happy 24th birthday to GM Daniele Vocaturo.
Apr-09-15  ketchuplover: He apparently lost to a 2100 player in Dubai recently
Apr-09-15  Karposian: <ketchuplover: He apparently lost to a 2100 player in Dubai recently>

Yes, and with the white pieces even. It was in Dubai Chess Open. He lost to Amruta Sunil Mokal, an untitled female chess player from India whose current rating is 2075, more than 500 rating points below Vocaturo. Quite the upset.

Aug-27-15  Badmojo: Vocaturo is not progressing at all, a shame.
Jan-03-16  sonia91: <World U18 Champion in 2006> Actually Arik Braun won the World U18 Championship in 2006: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World....

That's a pretty serious mistake.

Feb-03-17  WorstPlayerEver: Good, this is a male. Although it's not mentioned in their profile. Trying to figure out how many females participated in Trans.. I mean Tradewise Giblentar. You know..
Feb-04-17  sonia91: <Badmojo: Vocaturo is not progressing at all, a shame.> Daniele finally crossed 2600 in the January '17 list.

  OhioChessFan: 6 years ago, it seemed he was on his way to great heights, after winning Tata Steel Group C (2011) with a great series of games. Tata Steel Group C (2011)/Daniele Vocaturo On the negative side, he lost to Tania Sachdev so maybe the enthusiasm was overstated.
Oct-19-18  sonia91: Congrats to Daniele on winning the individual gold medal on board 5 at the 34th European Club Cup (2018)! He scored 5/5 playing for Obiettivo Risarcimento Padova, which eventually finished 4th on tiebreak: http://chess-results.com/tnr373918....
