Nov-20-14  BIDMONFA: Benjamin Gledura

GLEDURA, Benjamin

Feb-01-16  fisayo123: Beat (an out of sorts) Vishy Anand. He's 16.
Feb-01-16  Billy Vaughan: An attrative, minimalist win at that. Shades of Carlsen.
Feb-01-16  sonia91: He also defeated Karpov in the Highlander Cup (a rapid ko tournament) in Budapest at the Global Chess Festival organised by Judit Polgar last year. So Gledura has beat two former world champions so far (although one at rapid)!
Nov-20-17  diagonal: Gledura wins the closed <Magistral de Barcelona 2017> (ten players) as first on tie-break above top-seeded Frenchman Fressinet:

  MissScarlett: Judit Polgar once filmed a TV commercial with swimming legend Tamas Darnyi...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Messiah: He is definitely worse against Grandelius, lol lol.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Messiah: He can resign against Grandelius, this position is terrible. I wouldn't win it against Gledura, but Grandelius will, surely.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Messiah: Ah, it ended in a back-rank catastrophe.
Sep-10-19  wordfunph: World Cup 2019 1st round pairing:

Najer Evgeniy (RUS) vs Gledura Benjamin (HUN)

interesting match between veteran GM Najer vs 20-year-old GM Gledura

my chessbucks on GM Najer.

Nov-16-21  ndg2: 5/5 in the European Team Championship (2021), impressive!
