Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-06  Albertan: IM Valeriy Aveskulov is from the Ukraine.He has an elo of 2471.He is currently participating in the 2006 Istanbul Chess Festival. Here is link to a recent photo of him:

Dec-15-07  Karpova: Olena Boytsun: <Valeriy Aveskulov is an International Grandmaster, rated 2545, born on the 31st of January 1986 – which means he is 21 years old. He is from the Lugansk region, where he also started to play chess, but now he studies and lives in Kharkiv. Valeriy saw chess for the first time when he was five; his father showed him the rules of the game and some simple combinations. He received the title of international grandmaster in autumn 2006. He was a multiple medal winner of the Ukrainian Youth Championships, a medal winner of the World Youth Championships (France 1998, rapid chess; Greece 2003) as well as the first prize winner of a number of other international tournaments.

Valeriy Aveskulov is already a legend at his native chess school in the small town Antratsit in Lugansk Region of Ukraine, where he started to learn the game. "I just like chess," he said in an interview with a local paper, "the game develops your logic, teaches your to think. I would advise every parent to teach their children to play chess. The ability to think, to seek the best solution of a problem, I believe, will help a child in adult life, and it doesn't depend on how long the child will pursue chess."

The new champion of Ukraine is a student of law at the National Law Academy, and has no idea so far whether he will become a professional chess player with a good knowledge of his rights, or a professional lawyer with a great ability to think strategically. I personally believe that both choices are great.>

He won the 76th Ukrainian Men's Chess Championship with 6.5/9 ahead of Miroshnichenko, Kuzubov and Gasanov (all with 6.0/9). Oleg Romanishin ended up on place 15 with 4.5/9.

  whiteshark: .. "I was award­ed the title of In­ter­na­tion­al Mas­ter by FIDE in 2002. Four years later I be­came an In­ter­na­tion­al Grand­mas­ter. In 2007, I went to the USA and won the North Amer­i­can FIDE Open in Ok­la­homa and tied for 3rd place in the Chica­go Open. I gave many si­mul­ta­ne­ous ex­hi­bi­tions and played in nu­mer­ous local tour­na­ments.

But there is no place like home. I re­turned to the Ukraine in the lat­ter half of 2007. I won the na­tion­al cham­pi­onship and be­came the 76th cham­pi­on of my coun­try. In 2008 I joined the na­tion­al team and played in the 1st World Sports Mind Games in Bei­jing, where I won three medals. One of them was won with Ukraini­an Women's Cham­pi­on Ta­tiana Vasile­vich and two were won with my team­mates.

Dur­ing March 2008, I trained the best woman chess play­er of In­done­sia, Sukan­dar Irine Kharis­ma, who be­came a WGM at the end of that year.

Re­cent­ly I grad­u­at­ed the Na­tion­al Law Acade­my of Ukraine with a mas­ter's de­gree in law."
