Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Players profile: Artemiev - Part 2

Opening: E23, A49:

Player(s): Artemiev, Sanal, Firouzja, Jumabayev

As the year 2019 rolls along the hottest player on the circuit is the 21-year-old Russian Vladislav Artemiev. Known as a great talent in his junior years,Vladislav quickly developed into a fearsome rapid and blitz players, but it took him until 2019 to cross over into a 2700+ territory in classical chess. Once he'd done that there seems to be no stopping of his climb. His victory in the Gibraltar open was followed by a dominating performance in the World Team Championship (Grischuk referred to him as "our Chuck Norris"), and most recently the title of European Champion. Artemiev is already #3 in Russia with his 2754 of FIDE life rating list, ahead of Kramnik and Karjakin, and within striking distance of cracking World Top Ten. There's no way to tell how far Artemiev will go. How does he do that? This video series will open a window into the young star's chess, highlighting his skills in all aspects of the game. His opening repertoire is a blend of modern practical approach of hitting his opponents' weak spots with a sharp eye on tactical possibilities of exploiting his lead in development. Artemiev's handling of the middlegame combines his total lack of fear of complications with an ability to switch tracks in favor of technical solutions when necessary. Vladislav is blessed with a proper mindset for patient endgame play as well. A complete player as he is, Artemiev reminds me of the young Kramnik, with the way he wins games almost without effort. Old Vlad retired, long live New Vlad!
