Nov-06-11  BIDMONFA: Pavel Maletin


Nov-27-14  cro777: GM Pavel Maletin is Russian Rapid Champion.

The Russian Rapid Chess Championship took place on 19-20 May, 2014 in Saint Petersburg. Maletin was the winner in the Men’s Section with 6.5/9 points.

Maletin's analyses (in Russian on of the games of the World Championship Match in Sochi are among the best. The depth of his analysis of the endgame in the seventh game of the match is fascinating (Peter Svidler: "Trust me - you don't want to miss it!")

Dec-15-14  cro777: Maletin is also the 2014 Rapid Grand Prix champion.

The final tournament Rapid Grand Prix of Russia 2014, was played on 13-16th December in Rostov-on-Don. 16 players, who scored most points in the Grand Prix rapid events throughout the year, participated in a knock-out tournament playing 2 games in each round with a time control of 15 minutes with 10 seconds increment.

Maletin defeated Morozevich in quarter finals, young star Sjugirov in semi finals and Riazantsev in the final match.
