FIDE player card for Evgeny Romanov

(born Nov-02-1988, 32 years old) Russia
[what is this?]

International Master (2005); Grandmaster (2007); World U10 champion (1998); European U12/U14 champion (2000 and 2002).


Romanov's three IM norms came from his results at the Aeroflot Open B in 2003, the Serpukhov International A in Russia in 2004 (where he also gained his first GM norm), and the Serpukhov International Tournament in 2005. His remaining GM norms arose from his results at the 2nd Arkhipov Memorial GM tournament in Russia in 2007 and in the Higher League Russian Championship later that year.

Standard Tournaments

He took 3rd place in the Kristiansund Grand Prix in Norway in August 2010 and outright first in the 2012 Cannes Open ahead of 5 players a half point behind in 2nd place, including Etienne Bacrot and Tigran Gharamian. In September 2013, he won the category 13 round robin LGA Premium Cup with 5/7. In July 2015, he was =2nd at the powerful Benasque tournament behind Baskaran Adhiban.


Romanov's results at the 12th European Individual Championship (2011) qualified him for the World Cup (2011), where he was eliminated in the first round by fellow Russian GM Boris Grachev. His =1st (3rd on tiebreak) at the European Individual Championships (2013) qualified him to play in the World Cup (2013), where he lost his first round game to Anton Filippov and was eliminated from contention.

Nov-20-07  pawnofdoom: He's another one of the rising youngesters. He had a pretty good performance at the Junior champs this year, if I remember correctly. He's going to get to 2600 pretty soon, I guess.

The more so if someone called Yurovsky comes round, I should think, not to mention anyone by the surname of Ulyanov.
