Steliois Halkias was the Greek Under-12 and Under-16 champion. In 1992, he was the bronze medalist at the European U12 championship. In 2002, he was awarded the GM title. His result in the European Individual Championships (2010) enabled him to qualify for the World Cup (2011). There he faced Russian super-GM Alexander Morozevich in the first round, holding him to two drawn games in the classical game mini-match, but succumbed 2-0 in the 25 minute rapid game match tiebreaker.
