Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Searching for a new Russian Schoolboy #2

Opening: A57, D85: Benko Gambit, Gruenfeld

Player(s): Ponkratov, Dubov, Salem, Artemiev

GM Yermolinsky continues his quest for a new Russian Schoolboy. Russia, that has been the first country in chess for decades, is struggling. They don't win anymore all the team competitions - China seems to have become leader there - and there is not a Russian player at the moment who would appear to be able to challenge the World Champion. Kramnik, despite still being a very strong player, is getting old, and Karjakin has somehow disappeared from the top list. Following the Russian Higher League, GM Yermo discovered a young player who might raise some hope for a new Russian Schoolboy: Ivan Bukavshin. The 19-year-old Russian GM plays great chess, and Yermo shows us a couple of his games in this episode of his acclaimed show.

This is a 5 minute preview.
