The Weekly Show: Young Talents

by ChessBase
5/25/2021 – In his "Weekly Show" IM Lawrence Trent will focus on a new crop of young super talents - Marc’Andria Maurizzi, who got his GM title at the age of 14 years and 5 days, and Abhimanyu Mishra, the 12 year old close to becoming the youngest GM in history (he only needs 8 points and one norm to be the youngest GM of all time). | Lawrence's show is available on-demand with a ChessBase Premium Account.

The most popular chess program offers you everything you will need as a dedicated chess enthusiast, with innovative training methods for amateurs and professionals alike.


Lawrence: "I am going to take a look at Abhimanyu's victory vs Zoltan Varga in the Vezerkepzo tournament in Budapest. He plays in such a mature way it’s absolutely shocking that he is only 12 years of age!"

But first, a warm-up: Below is a position from a game Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Daniil Dubov played at the FTX Crypto Cup. It's Black to play. The position looks a little tricky for Black as he is pinned across the fifth. What did Dubov see here though to stay in the game?
