|Aug-29-17|| ||BIDMONFA: Volodar Murzin|
|Sep-07-18|| ||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.|
|Apr-06-21|| ||MissScarlett: <I'm twice European Champion, going to become World Champion! I have four sisters and I love to travel around the world!>|
|Apr-09-21|| ||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:
|Sep-13-22|| ||MissScarlett: From a Nepo interview in July 2022:
<I would really like to set up a grandmaster school like that of the legendary Botvinnik with probable adjustments for modern realities. When paying attention to the huge success of young chess players of India or Uzbekistan, I cannot but recall that the youngest Russian grandmaster is 19 years old.>
I assume that he means Arseniy Nesterov, unless there's more than one.
The Covid lockdowns may have played a part in slowing the conveyor belt, but Murzin is clearly Russia's Great White Hope.
|Sep-14-22|| ||Cassandro: For such a young player, and even though he is not yet a GM himself, he's already getting used to making quite a few "grandmaster draws". Already several quick, sub-20 move draws under his belt. The most recent just yesterday, in the Russian Championship, when he drew with Sjugirov after only 15 moves.|
|Sep-14-22|| ||SChesshevsky: <Cassandro> Interesting that you mention that. Believe there's a video of a quick repetition v. Yusupov from awhile ago on YouTube.|
Thought it rare that a young kid would go for it versus a noted GM. Actually, thought it was a good sign. Play principled and make the best move regardless.
Seems the junior can also put the hammer down too. With wins v. Howell, Harikrishna and Guijarro.
|Sep-17-22|| ||tessathedog: His game with Artimiev played yesterday in the Russian championship is one of the most interesting I've seen all year. And nearly all the heroic bits came from Murzin.|
|Dec-29-22|| ||SChesshevsky: A very good 2022 World Rapid's for Volodar. Faced a pretty tough lineup and ended +3. Has to be a confidence builder. Further gains in 2023 might be in the works.|
|Dec-29-22|| ||saffuna: <A very good 2022 World Rapid's for Volodar. Faced a pretty tough lineup and ended +3. >|
No kidding! Defeated some established players, drew some others.
These great young players are coming in waves.
