Game of the Week: Eliseev, Yu Yangyi

Tournament: 52nd World Juniors 2013 Kocaeli

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

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.
