Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Back from Chicago #2

Opening: D90: Grünfeld: Three knights variation

Player(s): Yermolinsky, Kleinman

Former World Champion and legendary chess teacher Mikhail Botvinnik was the originator of the “Every Russian school boy knows” chess aphorism, which alluded to the fact that thousands of unknown schoolboys back in Russia - due to the intense training methods they received from a young age - likely knew more about the game than most professionals did in the West. One player who came through that legendary Soviet training camp is former U.S. Champion GM Alexander Yermolinsky.  And each Sunday in his show, “Every Russian Schoolboy Knows”, Alex will explain and expand on all the top tips and tricks gleaned from those famed training methods.

Those who can't play they teach. True or false? To get an answer your favorite russian schoolboy had to travel to Chicago to play in his first full length tournament in years.
GM Yermolinsky continues this month of June with the analysis of a game he played against Canadian Michael Kleinman at the Chicago Open Tournament 2013.

This is a 5 minute preview.
