Game Of the Week: IM Eliseev vs. GM Yu Yangyi

Opening: B48 : Sicilian: Taimanov: 5.Nc3 Qc7 6.Be3 a6 without Be2

Player(s): Eliseev, Yu Yangyi

Three-time U.S. Champion GM Joel Benjamin brings you a new show every Friday at 15:00 Server Time. Joel is regarded by many as one of the best commentators and analysts' we have in the game today -- so if you want to get ahead of the game, get ready to tune-in!

Yu Yangyi has become the first Chinese World Junior Champion. That's a little surprising, considering the prodigies that country has produced in the last several years. The top seed dominated the field with an impressive 11/13, 9 wins and four draws.

Alexander Ipatov made a strong bid for his second World Junior title, but his +8 score left him a half-point short. Yu showed good patience and a variety of skills in racking up that big score. This week we will focus on his win over Russian grandmaster Urii Eliseev. The opening went straight into the endgame; after safeguarding his position from possible attacks, Yu went on the offensive. From then on, the white king never felt safe despite the limited material.
