Robert Ris: "In this week's show I have a look at the game Aditya-Erdogmus. A very brave and ambitious relatively new opening concept (6...f6!?) in the Caro-Kann Advance Variation enabled the young Turkish player to seize the initiative from the start. This stunning victory in only 32 moves with Black helped him to become the highest rated player U13 of all time, breaking Judit Polgar's 35 years old world record!"
