Evgeny Bareev was World Under-16 Champion in 1982 and since then has been a regular representative of Russia at the highest levels of world chess. He tied for first place in the Soviet Championship of 1990. Subsequent tournament successes include back-to-back victories at Hastings (1990-1991), fourth place at Linares 1994, joint second at Sarajevo 1999, clear first at Wijk aan Zee 2002 and third the following year. He reached the quarterfinals in the FIDE World Championships in 1999 and 2001, and was a semifinalist in the Candidates for the classical world championship at Dortmund 2002.

Bareev now lives in Toronto, Canada. In September 2015 he officially changed federations from Russia to Canada, thereby becoming Canada's #1 player.

  whiteshark: Happy Birthday, Evgeny!
Nov-21-11  brankat: Best wishes for your Birthday GM Bareev!
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: He has no rated games since the May 2010 rating list. Maybe he's writing another book.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <waustad> I think he was chief-trainer of the Russian Men National Teams during the 2010 Olympiad in Khanty-Mansiysk and even has been it after that. There have been some disputes...

  whiteshark: <waustad> check this thread for further infos ... :D

  PhilFeeley: Now living and playing in Canada, it seems. I wonder why.

Sep-18-15  Everett: Playing through this guy's games always makes me feel sad, as if I lost somebody close to me.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Now actually playing <for> Canada!
Premium Chessgames Member
  LucB: <Now actually playing <for> Canada!>

Nice snag. A 2650+ is always a good thing!

Oct-11-15  Conrad93: The strongest player over 45 in the world.
Oct-11-15  Conrad93: Bareev is doing extremely well at the Millionaire Chess Open. He could potentially reach 2700 again, or at least come very close.
Oct-12-15  sonia91: <Conrad93: The strongest player over 45 in the world.> Actually Nigel Short (born in 1965) is the highest rated over-45 player in the world.
Oct-12-15  Conrad93: <Actually Nigel Short (born in 1965) is the highest rated over-45 player in the world.>

The last time Short was able to beat Bareev was in 1996.

In fact, Short only has two wins against Bareev out of 18 games in the database.

The score is 5-2 in his favor.

Oct-12-15  Conrad93: Their ratings are only a few points apart, but I do think Bareev is stronger.
Premium Chessgames Member
  LucB: <Conrad93> Gelfand is over 45 and certainly stronger than Bareev, no?
Premium Chessgames Member
  LucB: Oh, and I forgot Ivanchuk!
Oct-14-15  sonia91: <LucB> You are right, I don't know how I could forget them!
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Gelfand? Ivanchuk? You forgot <Anand> himself, who is 45 (if there were some prizes for players Over45, 45-year-olds would count!)
Oct-17-15  Conrad93: <Gelfand? Ivanchuk? You forgot <Anand> himself, who is 45 (if there were some prizes for players Over45, 45-year-olds would count!)>

I said <over> 45. Anand is 45.

I forgot Ivanchuk and Gelfand. Okay, third strongest.

  Caissanist: Anybody know why Bareev moved to Toronto? I've never heard of that city being a particular hotbed of chess activity.
Premium Chessgames Member
  PhilFeeley: Perhaps he knows people there and went to coach. Toronto may not be a hotbed but it does have some good players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Bareev! Next year we can say nifty nifty Bareev is 50! 😃 <Phil> That is interesting that he moved to Toronto. Your guess as to why he moved there might be correct
