Vladislav Artemiev

The Russian speed chess specialist shocked everyone in his first Tour event by shooting his way to the FTX Crypto Cup final, when his inspired rookie run came to an end against an inspired Aronian. But the softly-spoken 23-year-old is a former European Champion whose star is undoubtedly rising. Artemiev is an attacking beast in rapid and blitz who is capable of beating any opponent – and he’s only going to get better.
