I had great success last year playing chess tournaments, and was able to increase my FIDE Elo ratings by more than 100 Elo points on average from January 2012 to January 2013. You can see my FIDE rating card here. My ratings are now as follows: Classical: 2495, Rapid: 2575, Blitz: 2581.
My best results in 2012 were:
• European Rapid Championship: Silver
• World Rapid Championship: Silver
• Team Russian Championship: Team Bronze
• Team Russian Championship: Individual Silver
• Swiss Championship: Bronze
• Istanbul Olympiads: Team Gold
• Istanbul Olympiads: Individual Bronze
• European Club Cup: Individual Gold
• Mind Sport Games: Blitz Gold

I hope to do well also in 2013, I’ll also be training a lot and playing many tournaments.
