  Penguincw: Congrats to Kryvoruchko for re-entering the 2700 mark on the live ratings, as he currently sits at exactly 2700 after beating Gonzalez Vidal with black today (Round 6).

It was an important game too, as the top 3 boards against Cuba were drawn.

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Wow. a 2700 player I never heard of. Anyway congratulations on hitting that distinctive rating.
Apr-26-19  sonia91: He's the number 1 of Ukraine in the April '19 list, ahead of Ivanchuk (!) and Korobov, it must be the first time.
