  wordfunph: congrats! Bartel wins 2011 Polish Championship by chessbase..

Oct-02-11  waustad: With 6 1/2 out of 7 in the ECC, he'll be picking up some rating points. A 2844 performance rating and winning the board 3 prize can't hurt his career.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Bartel in a 3 way tie for first, with 4 half a point back and like 11 one full point behind. Tomorrow, he plays an important game with the black pieces against co-leader Korobov, while the other co-leader, Eljanov has black against Andreikin.
Feb-15-12  yesnomaybeidontknow: Congratulations, Mateusz!
Winner of The Aeroflot Open!
Good luck in Dortmund!

  tamar: Qualified for Dortmund, I believe, as a result of winning Aeroflot.
Feb-27-12  polarmis: He's on the preliminary list for the European Individual Chess Championship, 19 March - 1 April:

  Penguincw: < ...what's next? >

Unless he decided to participate in the Reykjavik Open, then I guess it will be European Champ., as mentioned by <polarmis>.

Mar-17-12  polarmis: Here's a long interview with Bartel after winning the Polish Championship (it looks like he's actually going to be pretty busy before Dortmund!):

  diagonal: After Poland won the Bronze medal at the 2017 World Team Chess Championship, and Radoslaw Wojtaszek took this year's Dortmund as clear first, another fine win for a Polish player:

Bartel triumphed in the Master Tournament (Open) at Biel.

Bartel, a typical Elo 2600+ player (peak 2677 in 2012) but below regular invitations in closed international tournaments, has now some pretty nice and traditional Open chess tournament wins in his pocket: Aeroflot, Barcelona, Biel, or Isle of Man (among some others).

In 2007, he tied for 1st-6th with Vitali Golod, Zahar Efimenko, Yuri Yakovich, Michael Roiz and Mikhail Kobalia in the <16th Monarch Assurance Isle of Man> International open tournament, as first on tie-break in the last Isle of Man Open under the label of Monarch Assurance. IoM had a longer break afterwards and has been restarted then in 2014 as considerable stronger Open, it will see an even bigger line-up this year.

In 2008, Bartel won the <10th International Chess Open de Sants, Hostafrancs i La Bordeta in Barcelona> after speed tie-breaks from Pablo Lafuente, Diego Di Berardino and Josep Oms Pallisse after all scored 8/10 (A-Open, 322 players).

Note: the final standings on some websites were not complete; because of that, on many reports GM Lafuente was declared a winner by Bucholz, but for all prized places, blitz tie-breaks were to be played (2 games / 5 minutes, in case of draw Armageddon), and Bartel won Barcelona in the tie-break mini-matches.

In 2012, Bartel tied for 1st-3rd with Anton Korobov and Pavel Eljanov in the <11th Aeroflot Open at Moscow>, winning the prestigious event on tie-break.

In 2017, Bartel won the <Open at the Biel Chess Festival (50th and jubilee edition)>, on tie-break above Vladimir Baklan.
