Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Heroes of the Candidates #4

Opening: :

Player(s): Aronian, Kramnik, Carlsen, Gelfand

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.

Every tournament has winners and losers, but our GM Yermolinsky is going to give credit to every player for being part of the best chess tournament ever. In this new series. Alex shows us the best of the best form the just finished 2013 FIDE Candidates Tournament. An instructive and interesting series, which will accompany us during the month of April. Alex’s approach is not going to be analyzing random games from the tournament; he will check with us player by player, trying to understand what happened to each of them. It’ll be thrilling to listen to GM Yermo, whose wit and analysis deepness are famous in the chess world.

This is a 5 minute preview.
