Most significant tournament wins include Corus B in 2005, the category XVIII Petr Izmailov Memorial Tournament in 2006, Corus 2009, the Karpov Poikovsky tournament in 2010 and Norway Chess in Stavanger in 2013 & 2014.

At the European Team Championships, won individual bronze playing for Ukraine in 2007 and individual silver playing for Russia in 2011.
