MURZIN, Volodar

  wordfunph: World Junior U20 Round 1:

<That being said still the first round saw few surprises. 12 years old Russian talent Volodar Murzin held against the second seed Jorden van Foreest and thus managed to begin the championship with a draw, usually not a bad result if you are playing with black against a 2624 ELO player!>

Jun-03-19  SueursFroides: Murzin is stronger and stronger, he is more solid now, and he beat a lot of strong GMs. +2400 at 12 years old.

  MissScarlett: My boy had an up and down first day - he beat his two GM opponents but scored only 1/2 point from three games with IMs.

Apr-16-21  SChesshevsky: Saw a nice win vs. Pragg on the 1st day of recent Polgar Challenge. Kramnik had some positive things to say about this young player.

Can recommend watching event on YouTube with J. Polgar and Kramnik commentary.

May-02-21  SymphonicKnight: It seems that there are a number of games by Volodar Murzin that are not yet included in the Chessgames database. He has played in the Polgar Challengers (14/19) and in the Russian Junior Championship (6/9) in 2021.
Jul-16-21  Albertan: Volodar Murzin scores upset win:
