Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Endgames by method #7

Opening: :

Player(s): Hovhannyssian, Sjugirov

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 new hit show, “Every Russian Schoolboy Knows”, Alex will explain and expand on all the top tips and tricks gleaned from those famed training methods.

GM Alex Yermolinsky starts 2013 with a resolution: give his fans a new vision on endings. His show started indeed on the lines of the great Botvinnik's quote: "Every Russian schoolboy knows how to play this endgame!". GM Alex will group the endings by the "method" rather than by the material left on the board. With examples taken from famous games played by great players, our Yermo guides us through the labyrinth of the finals.
