FIDE player card for Vladislav Artemiev

(born Mar-05-1998, 19 years old) Russia

[what is this?]

FM (2010); IM (2012); GM (2014) at the age of 15 years 10 months and 11 days.

Winner of the World's Youth Stars (2012) and the World Youth Stars 2013, the latter with a stunning 10.5/11 with two rounds to spare. Scored his 3rd GM norm when he won the Andranik Margaryan Memorial - 2014, a category 11 event, with 6/9. Soon afterwards swept the powerful category 12 Moscow Open - F (student's division in the event) placing first with a stunning 8/9 (+7 =2) for an amazing TPR of 2869 to accumulate 26 rating points and surge well into the 2600 rating group. He won the 2015 Russian Higher League event with 6.5/9 to qualify for the Russian Superfinal to be held in August 2015.

His result in the European Individual Championships (2014) placed him within the bracket of players who qualified for the World Cup (2015), where he defeated Surya Shekhar Ganguly in the first round only to fall to Radoslaw Wojtaszek in the second, thereby bowing out of the event.

Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 3 OF 3 ·  Later Kibitzing>
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.

  cro777: Russian Superfinal starts in one week.

The 2015 Russian Championship Superfinal for men and women will be held in Chita on August 8-21.

The highest rated players in the men's section are Jakovenko, Karjakin, Tomashevsky and Svidler. Other participants are Vitiugov, Artemiev, Motylev, Bukavshin, Khairullin and Dubov.

Artemiev qualified to this final stage of the Russian Championship by winning the Russian Higher League, the 4th stage of the 68th Russian Menís Chess Championship, which took place from June 21 till July 2 in Kaliningrad.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: "After the Higher League, Artemiev played in the Lake Sevan tournament. He scored a modest plus one, which was a performance rating very close to his current rating. Let's see what he's capable of in the Superfinal!"

Round 1 of the Superfinal starts on Sunday, August 9th.

Artemiev faces Vitiugov with the white pieces.

Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: A great start for Artemiev. After four roundes with 3/4 he ties for first with Tomashevsky.

Premium Chessgames Member
  sydbarrett: I love that picture. He has the spirit and poise of a man who has seen many things, and closes his eyes to show that he can see without "seeing." :D

  WannaBe: Lookin' at the pic, obviously a Sicilian player. Nice!
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Artemiev's main defenses are the Sicilian Najdorf against 1.e4 and the Gruenfeld Defense and (Semi)Slav against 1.d4.

In the second round of the Russian Superfinals he drew with Dubov in the Gruenfeld Defense and in the fourth round he defeated Khairullin in the Slow Slav.

Khairullin blundered in a defensible position:

Khairullin - Artemiev. Position after 46.Qh6+

47.Kg2?? and mate in 2 follows (47...Rg1+ 48.Kf3 Qe3#)

Of course, White can hold the draw after 47.Qh5 Qxh5+ 48.gxh5 Rd5 49.Kg4 followed by Bf4.

(Young stars Daniil Dubov and Vladislav Artemiev)

  juan31: A super young player is excelent

  cro777: "A Rising Star Shares Superfinal Lead After 4 rounds"

The 17-year-old grandmaster from Omsk can't complain so far, with first two draws, and then two wins. Especially his round three game V Artemiev vs Motylev, 2015 was attractive and, like I Bukavshin vs I Lysyj, 2015 in round one, the theoretical novelty was an (improvised!) piece sac.

Position after 11...g5

12.Nxg5!? (the common move here is 12.Bg3)

Artemiev: "The sacrifice was very tempting and I could not withstand it!"

In Round 5 Artemiev, with the white pieces, drew with Svidler in a Symmetrical English.

Aug-13-15  Everett: <Aug-12-15 sydbarrett: I love that picture. He has the spirit and poise of a man who has seen many things, and closes his eyes to show that he can see without "seeing." :D>

I think he is sleepy

Premium Chessgames Member
  sydbarrett: lol a very different interpretation of the picture, and just as plausible.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: "All things are subject of interpretation."

  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Vladislav Artemiev.
Mar-05-16  sonia91: Happy 18th birthday!
Jul-28-16  sonia91: Artemiev shared first place with Vidit Santosh Gujrathi in the 2016 Lake Sevan tournament in Armenia, placing second on tiebreak:
Aug-10-16  Troller: Top seed in the ongoing Junior World Championships:

Until we have a page for the event, this may be the proper place to discuss. It seems a little weaker than normally, with just 2 players above 2600. But plenty of talent present!

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Is this the man who will slay Carlsen, in ten years?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Filip Marko: No, he is inconsistent. He can't even win this years Junior World Championship. One of two 2600 players in the tournament but won't even get a medal.
Sep-09-16  sonia91: He end up winning the silver in the World Junior Championship (2016).
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Has jumped up to #3 in the blitz ratings on the back of scoring +27 -2 =7 across the Russian Championship and Russian Team Championship in the first week of October.
Nov-01-16  sonia91: Indeed, he won the Russian Blitz Championship 2016:
Premium Chessgames Member
  kaaretp: Perfect game from Vasyl Ivantsjuk and wins over Magnus Carlsen, who is not playing up to his best.
