  wordfunph: he will get his GM title upon reaching a 2500 rating, for now a conditional GM title for Roeland Pruijssers..

Mar-18-12  shivasuri4: Roeland Pruijssers, representing SK Turm Emsdetten against SG Trier in the Bundesliga 2011, moves a step closer to the GM title after his exquisite win against IM Dietmar Kolbus. Playing the white side of the Advance Variation of the Caro Kann, he demonstrated fine endgame technique to win in 78 moves.His opponent made a number of inaccuracies just before and after the first time control, and Pruijssers maintained the edge for the rest of the game.
Mar-18-12  shivasuri4: His being the last game to finish (none of the other games crossed move 55), Pruijssers helped his team win the round with a 4.5 - 3.5 score.

  whiteshark: and Kolbus is by no means a lightweight.

  diagonal: some retrospective notes: <Winner in Leiden Open 2008:>: watch out the tenth placed boy at Leiden Open in 2008, photographed by Frits Agterdenbos, a then thirteen years young FM from Russia (that time), a year later in 2009 he got the GM title at age of 14 years and 7 months, he developed quickly as a junior, his ELO rating increasing between April 2006 and July 2010 from 2114 to 2672, do you guess him?

Roeland Pruijssers has played the Leiden Open twice in 2009 and 2016, the 10th jubilee edition, and won both times!! Congratulation:
