Classical World Champion 2000-2006; 14th undisputed World Champion 2006-2007; World U18 Champion 1991 and former world #1.

Kramnik defeated long standing World Champion Gary Kasparov for the Classical title in 2000, at a time when the world championship was split between FIDE and the Kasparov-led rebels. After successfully defending his classical title against Peter Leko in 2004, Kramnik won the reunification match against Topalov in 2006. A year later he placed second at the World Championship Tournament, relinquishing his crown to Vishwanathan Anand.

He won the Dortmund tournament on ten occasions, in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011, Corus (now Tata) in 1998 and Linares in 2000 and 2004. Other major victories include Amsterdam 1993, Dos Hermanos 1996 & 1997, Tillburg 1997, Moscow 2007, 2008 & 2009, Bilbao 2010, Hoogeveen 2011, London 2011

Won team gold for Russia at the Olympiads in 1992, 1994, and 1996, individual gold for top board at the 2006 Olympiad. Also won team silver playing for Russia in the 2010 and 2012 Olympiads.
