My Favorite Players: Vassily Ivanchuk

In between a Salov and an MVL you have an Ivanchuk, who's actually a player that has spanned several generations. GM Finegold shows him tear apart Svidler's cherished Grunfeld Defense, then Chucky terrorizes another GM with seven consecutive pawn moves in the middlegame! That game was barely 20 moves. Ben loves how precise Ivanchuk plays, as he can outcalculate most modern grandmasters, and he's not afraid to play anything!
