Bio

Alexander Donchenko is a German grandmaster. His two best performances came in 2019, when he first shared second place with GM Gata Kamsky at Biel Masters, one-half point behind GM Amin Tabatabaei. A couple of months later, he went undefeated and won the Barcelona Open, ironically beating out Kamsky by a half point, who tied for second place. Donchenko is number two on the list of highest-ranked players in Germany (as of March 2021).
