Jan-14-20  YetiBlitz: Nice finish!
Jan-14-20  ndg2: Poor Kovalev. The winner of last years challengers only scored 0.5/4 so far.

  HeMateMe: I KNEW Vlad would win this game!
Jan-14-20  Carrots and Pizza: Is it really a Nimzo Indian if Black doesn't capture on c3 and plays ...d5 like a regular QGD?
Jan-16-20  MordimerChess: First of all, Kovalev was in huge time troubles. For his last moves he had 30 seconds and he blundered in the move 39... ouch! But Artemev found the tactic also in time troubles, he had 1 minute to make his move. Seems like all the time tactic trainings can be useful in critical moments ;)

About if it's really Nimzo Indian. Yes, it is... however other popular openings has been named much deeper, more precise. This should be implemented here as well..

I just uploaded my commentary here:

You can also find link to interview with Artemiev in the first 2 minutes of movie. Enjoy!
