jamesmaskell: Ive followed Turov for a while now, partly because he crops up in so many tournaments you cant avoid his name. A truly professional player. His game's come on a long way in the past year or so. A very reliable opening repertoire.
Penguincw: < "Russia’s Maxim Turov took the 100-euro day prize in group C for his win in 31 moves with black from a Reti against India’s Adhiban Baskaran. Turov shares the lead in this section of the tournament with Sweden’s Hans Tikkanen, who defeated Britain’s Matthew Sadler, also with black, in 42 moves from a French Defense." >
eternaloptimist: I'm surprised that nobody has made a comment (until now) today since he is the POTD today but he is a "no name" GM. This must be the reason for this. I'm not familiar w/ him at all but I've noticed that he looks like something out of a horror movie in this bidmonfa pic...lol!:
Although he is rated over 2600 now so he's got my respect for his chess playing ability!
