And now a bit about me :)
I was born in 1989. In the age of 5, I was taught chess basics by my father - he used to be an experienced player. The "real chess" began, when I turned 8 - I started working with Pavel Savitskiy, who not only did become my chess coach but also became my guru with a vengeance. Thanks to him, I achieved a lot in chess and what is more importantly - in a real life.
In the age of 9, for the first time of my life, I took part in the Ukrainian Championship - among men, not youth :) At that tournament, I even managed to defeat the National Master. It was my first master's "scalp".
In the age of 13, I won the second prize in the Ukrainian Youth Championship (under 14) and represented my country in the European Youth Championship in Budva, where I managed to enter the "best 10" in rapid and blitz. That was my last youth competition - after that, I began playing only in the "adults" national and international tournaments.
In 2005, I became the FIDE Master.
In 2006, I won the Donetsk Championship and became the National Master.
In 2007, I did everything - norms and rating - to accomplish the title of International Master.
In 2015, I won 12th Vasylyshyn Memorial and accomplished my first norm of the International Grandmaster.
