Evil Kid in Serbia. By GM Alex Yermolinsky

Added on 01.05.2016

GM Alex Yermolinsky shares with us his recent chess adventure in Belgrade, Serbia. After a long absence from European chess scene I made a trip to Serbia to play in the traditional Belgrade Trophy open tournament over this past Thanksgiving. The Belgrade Trophy is rarely held in the Capital of Serbia proper, but rather in satellite towns. In the years past it was held in Obrenovac, but after the floods of May 2014 the venue was lost, and for the 2015 edition it moved to a sports and culture...Full Story

Added on 10.30.2015

Wesley So vs. Liren Ding - Bilbao Masters Final 2015 At the start of the Bilbao Masters, two young players with short surnames and long futures contested a sharp King's Indian.

Both players sacrificed material at various points, leading to instructive moments about the relative value of pieces.   400 and counting! Yesterday, when we finished recording his show, Joel told me "Man,...Full Story
