Artemiev is someone to keep an eye on.

Artemiev and Wei happened to play each other in that Turkish Super League.

Eljanov got gradually outplayed there. Just a really nice game
|Jan-25-15|| ||fisayo123: Wei Yi has really pulled away from Artemiev now. Up to the young Russian to make up ground.|
|Feb-01-15|| ||renumeratedfrog: The Russian is far behind Wei Yi... Someone should update his entry claiming that he's #1 in U18... Not anymore!|
|Feb-09-15|| ||pinoy king: Completely outclassed by Wei Yi who is younger.|
|Feb-09-15|| ||JointheArmy: <pinoy king> Barely. Just over a year.|
|Feb-09-15|| ||twinlark: <renumeratedfrog: The Russian is far behind Wei Yi... Someone should update his entry claiming that he's #1 in U18... Not anymore!>|
Yes he is - http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?....
Wei Yi is the world's top U16, and is not counted in the U18s, although he is counted as a Junior (U20) (he will be the new #1 Junior in March).
|Mar-17-15|| ||Troller: Artemiev is in the lead in Georgi Agzamov Memorial (or Tashkent Open) in Uzbekistan. It's a bit under the radar, being held out on the steppes, but some decent names like Safarli, Petrosian and Tkachiev are there.|
|Mar-20-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Vladislav Artemiev for winning the 9th Tashkent Open, Agzamov Memorial on tiebreaks over another Vladislav: Vladislav Tkachiev. He scored 7/9 (+5,-0,=4). He also gained 7 rating points to move from 2664 to 2671.|
|Jul-01-15|| ||Penguincw: Vladislav Artemiev takes the Russian Championship with a score of 6.5/9 (+4,-0,=5), ahead of Alexander Motylev and Ivan Bukavshin on tiebreaks.|
|Jul-02-15|| ||Troller: <Vladislav Artemiev takes the Russian Championship>|
I think this was the "Higher League". There will be a "Superfinal" later on which counts as Russian Championship. Artemiev would be qualified for that now of course.
A solid performance by Artemiev whose live rating goes to 2672. Not Wei Yi numbers, but better than all others in this age bracket I suppose.
|Jul-02-15|| ||fisayo123: Congratulations. Artemiev is very much the biggest genuine promise in Russian chess at the moment. These is the guy the Russian chess authorities should be backing because there is a strong case to suggest Russia won't be the dominant force in world chess in the not to distant future, that is depending on whatever dominant means for you i.e no gold medal at the Olympiad since Kasparov retired.|
Vituigov is a good player but rarely plays. Nobody in Carlsen's age group apart from Karjakin who isn't even Russian. I like Andreikin and Nepomniachtchi a lot but they seem to have hit a plateau. Again, no one in Caruana or Giri's age group and only Artemiev in Wei Yi's. And the U-14's and U-12's don't offer a lot. You have to go back to the U-11's and below before we start to see promise. Chess in this computer age has very much become a globalized game now, no longer restricted to certain regions in the world. And I think it's safe to say the era of Soviet/Russian dominance of chess ended with their last great champion, Gary Kasparov.
|Jul-02-15|| ||AsosLight: Wrong. Absolutely wrong. Russia never dominated chess world, Soviet Union did. Karjakin is much more Russian than Kasparov/Weinstein is, just to name one. |
Despite the globalization of chess world nothing really changed in the sense that Russia still has a huge lead in the top 10 players average rating list which represents a chess country better than most things. Despite Sinquefield's attempts his team is still much weaker than other private teams, like Socar for example, which let us only with China that is indeed closing in what appears to be the only true new powerhouse in global chess in almost a century after the resolution of Austian-Hungary Empire.

Okay, it appears you read my comment in haste. We are actually saying the same thing. Russia were only ever dominant in the sense of having the collection of the strongest players (which is the point you make in your 2nd paragraph), but the point I was getting at was that majority of those players are either past their prime or not the very best in their age group and that Russia is kind of running short in the really top talent department in the generation between say, a Magnus Carlsen and a Wei Yi. Apart from Artemiev in that gap period, the talent is underwhelming. That was the thrust of my comment. Whether or not Karjakin is any more or less Russian than Kasparov is is a moot point. And besides the Russians still have produced more world champions than any other nation.
<Despite the globalization of chess world nothing really changed in the sense that Russia still has a huge lead in the top 10 players average rating list which represents a chess country better than most things. >
Kramnik, Svidler, Morozevich are all past their best. Tomaschevsky, Andreikin, Nepomniachtchi, Jakovenko and Vituigov might make the odd noise here and there but are not world championship material, not necessarily based on talent but on several things missing in their game. In fact, the only truly great players in their prime age are Karjakin and
Grischuk and neither have showed themselves to be genuine candidates for the WC crown.
Look at the ages of the top players in Russia and compare it to say China, and it's clear China will be the dominant force in chess in the not to distant future.
<Despite Sinquefield's attempts his team is still much weaker than other private teams, like Socar for example, which let us only with China that is indeed closing in what appears to be the only true new powerhouse in global chess in almost a century after the resolution of Austian-Hungary Empire.>
I'm not sure what you're talking about there.
|Jul-02-15|| ||AsosLight: What I want to say is that despite the globalization and the undoubted crisis in Russian chess the only country that really closes the gap is China. The player basis widens around the world which means that Russia ever weakens compare to all the rest combined, but the gap between the major powers one by one with Russia really remains pretty stable with the sole exception of China. This is a statistic subtlety but an important one.|
|Jul-02-15|| ||fisayo123: Maybe I exaggerated a little about the Russian talent coming through. They do have two very promising 13 year old players and a lot of talent after that. It's just that there's a noticeable lull in talent between post 1990 (Magnus Carlsen) and 1999 (Wei Yi)|
|Jul-03-15|| ||Troller: <It's just that there's a noticeable lull in talent between post 1990 (Magnus Carlsen) and 1999 (Wei Yi)>|
That might be; nevertheless, Russia seems not too shabby in these junior age brackets.
Year-of-birth top players:
1995: 1 Fedoseev RUS 2664 2 Bukavshin RUS 2642
1996: 1 Rapport HUN 2671 2 Dubov RUS 2661
1997: 1 Bluebaum GER 2589 2 Oparin RUS 2571
1998: 1 Artemiev RUS 2660 2 Duda POL 2632
Then it stops more or less; Russia has no one in the junior top-100 younger than Artemiev, whereas China has a handful, and even the US has some.
I remember comments back in the 1990's that Russian players broke through a little bit later than players from elsewhere. It certainly looks like China is set to overtake them right now, but we will be wiser in years to come.
