A tribute to Ivan Bukavshin in 64 games
This new book is a lovely tribute to the Russian chess player Ivan Bukavshin, born in Rostov-on-Don in 1995. He tragically died in early 2016 at the age of twenty.
Bukavshin was a Russian chess prodigy. He was European U12, U14 and U16 champion and placed third in the world U16 championships among many other successes. He gained the grandmaster title at just sixteen years of age and had a series of strong 2700+ performances in 2013-2015.
GM Jakov Geller, his friend and coach, is the author of this 216-page book. It takes a detailed look at Ivan’s life and career in fifty deeply annotated games and fourteen fragments.
Apart from Geller, twenty other grandmasters annotate games in this book. These include Danill Dubov, Alexander Morozevich, Vladislav Artemiev, Vladimir Fedoseev, Maxim Matlakov and Evgeny Alekseev.
