Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Botvinnik… Kramnik, who’s next? - Part 2

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian: Unusual White 4th moves

Player(s): Andreikin, Karjakin, Svidler, Nepomniachtchi, Shomoev

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.

As the main events of 2013 are now behind us - of course we exclude the World Championship Match - it is time to take stock. The big winner in 2013 was Vladimir Kramnik, who re-affirmed his role as the undisputed leader of Russian Chess, by providing a strong challenge to Magnus Carlsen in the Candidates and later, winning the World Cup. However, Vladimir is already 38, and he's not planning to carry that torch forever. Who has his back? Alex Yermolinsky is offering his take on a new crop of Russian Schoolboys. 
Don't miss this new and exciting series with our GM Alex Yermolinsky! 

This is a 5 minute preview.
