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.

Alex Yermolinsky, in his new series of "Every Russian Schoolboy Knows", guides us through some of the amazing aspects of a Knock-Out tournament. Of course the occasion is given by the World Cup 2013, which has proven to be a very interesting and thrilling event.
Alex is going to tell us his thoughts about US players and how some of them got eliminated; how to put up a fight when facing overwhelming odds: a must-win game with Black against a higher-rated player; the importance of an opening surprise as... demonstrated by Alexei Dreev.
Don't miss this new and exciting series with our GM Alex Yermolinsky!

This is a 5 minute preview.
