Peter Leko Short Bio

Péter Lékó (born September 8, 1979 in Subotica, Serbia) is an International Grand Master of Hungarian chess.

On the FIDE list, it has an elo score of 2737.

In 1994 Lékó became the youngest Grand Master in history, at the age of 14, a record that was later surpassed by several players.

His main victories are those of Dortmund 2002 (above Viswanathan Anand) and Linares 2003 (tied with Vladímir Krámnik). His victory in the first allowed him to face Kramnik for the title of unofficial world champion (also called classical) of chess, meeting that was held in Brissago, Switzerland in 2004. The result was a tight 7-7 (Lékó led 7-6 by subtracting a game) and allowed Kramnik to retain the title. To these results we must add his victory of the year 2005 in the very strong Corus Chess Tournament, in Wijk an Zee (solo ahead of Krámnik and Anand among others).

Regarding his style of play, he is one of the most solid players of today, very difficult to beat, and with a great theoretical preparation. In addition, his lifestyle is that of a professional athlete, combining his chess preparation with an excellent preparation on the physical and psychological level; because of his tendency to draw tables, he is called by some “Draw Man, or Mr Drewko”.

In March 2007, in the International Chess Tournament Ciudad de Linares, Lékó was ranked 8th, with 6 points in 14 games, (+ 1 = 11 -2) .11 draws, confirming his nicknames as Draw Man because he is rarely seen winning.
