Daniil Zelenchuk stars at the Glorney Cup 2018

One of Ulster's brightest young talents, 15 year old Daniil Zelenchuk, was representing Ireland recently in the 2018 Glorney Cup.

Daniil scored an incredible 5 points out of 5 games including wins against 3 much higher rated players - Natahn Weisman (2003), Ben Volland (1887) and Derk Kouwenhoven (1994). This performance saw him win a medal for best Irish player in the Glorney Cup.

Daniil has had a meteoric rise in Ulster Chess, gaining 750 rating points in 2 years. His recent results suggest it won't be too long before he breaks through the 2000 barrier!
