Aug-25-07  Petrosian63: He is doing very well against China right now.

  acirce: Decent, 5/6 so far.
Oct-01-07  pawnofdoom: He's in the 2700s now! The 41st or 42nd player to do so, I think, coming in with Wang Yue this supplement. he gained 27 points to go to 2716 and now he's #15 in the world
Nov-01-07  supertimchan: Why noone wants to kibitz here?
Nov-12-07  argishti: yes, it is strange, 22 year old 2700+ player. and not even one page filled out yet...
Dec-05-07  stanleys: He needs to become World Champion to have some more kibitzing?

Seriously - one of the most promising players,very solid.Everybody talks about Magnus,Shak,Radja,Cheparinov and so on - but Alekseev is at least at the same level,if not superiour

Dec-05-07  cotdt: a high rating does not mean much without wins in big events. if he wins the world cup, then i suspect he will get much more attention.
Dec-05-07  micartouse: I like Alekseev, and of the remaining players I'd love to see him take the cup. He's just a straight up cool dude.
Dec-05-07  stanleys: <cotdt:> <<a high rating does not mean much without wins in big events. if he wins the world cup, then i suspect he will get much more attention>>

Well I think that even some "super GMs" will have much trouble to win the Russian Championship,Aeroflot Open,share 2nd place in Dortmund,score 7/10 against the best Chinese players and so on.OK he underperformed at the Tal Memorial,but it was his only failure

Jul-29-08  amateur05: Apparently, according to a new article in chessbase, Alekseev is from Norway which has adopted the Russian flag.
Jul-29-08  Troller: <amateur05: Apparently, according to a new article in chessbase, Alekseev is from Norway which has adopted the Russian flag.> I believe Norway has recently annexed Russia with a quick military takeover. Together they will rule the world with oil and gas.

Regarding the meagre interest in Alekseev, it's common knowledge that Eastern European players are not interesting for the public, and Russian players are at the bottom of that hierarchy. Just look at the kibitzing on Nakamura's page.

But it's also a common trait that young Russian chessplayers break through a little later than most others. So I think Alekseev is still improving, and we shouldn't discount him as future top-10 player.

  acirce: Norway is "the last Soviet state" (then Swedish minister of business Björn Rosengren in 1999.)

<So I think Alekseev is still improving, and we shouldn't discount him as future top-10 player.> Definitely not! I think it's more likely than not that he will be.

Jul-31-08  micartouse: I bet chessbucks that the Russian would take Biel and it got me out of the hole. :) Congrats to Alekseev for taking home another nice trophy, and I'm looking forward to more games from him.
Nov-05-08  percyblakeney: It says something about how strong the Russian team is in the Olympiad when Alekseev isn't included. In the Spanish Team Championship a couple of days ago he outplayed Adams from this quite even position:

Here they are. Both from NICbase. 2nd game is very strange. Don't know if notation is incorrect or that there was an agreement about the conclusion of this game in advance.

Oct-05-09  returnoftheking: Don't see this strong GM in big tournaments nowadays, unfortunately. What is his next?
Jun-18-10  shalgo: What is wrong with Alekseev in the Capablanca Memorial? Is he ill? His tournament thus far consists almost entirely of short draws with white and losses (with both white and black).
Jun-19-10  miguelito: pido disculpa por mi nefasto a comentario a chessgames .
Jun-18-11  plimko: Curious! It happened today in the 4th round of the Russian Higher League. The material is even, the white Queen can be taken, but Black resign! ;-)

Jun-19-11  dikankan: If black plays 23..Qxf4, White wins the queen back with an extra pawn by 24.Nxd5+ and black will have fatal weaknesses on b7, c7 and e6. White's rooks in the centre are deadly compared to black's rooks, and it is quite an instructive position.
Jul-16-11  poorpatzer: So this guy's fallen quite a bit Elo-wise and elite tournament invitation wise. Anybody know what's wrong? He's by no means old (25).
Nov-28-11  Don Cossacks: Happy b-day GM Alekseev!
