Like Daniil Dubov, mentioned in the preceding post, Vladislav Artemiev is an exceptionally strong and talented Russian junior who has stagnated somewhat the past couple of years. He is still quite young, however, and has time to work his way to higher levels. And if his blitz skills are any indication at all, then he's headed for greatness as a chess player - he's #3 in the world in blitz, ahead of Hikaru Nakamura and everyone else in the world except for Ding Liren and Magnus Carlsen. Here's a profile of the youngster.

Vladislav Artemiev may not quite be at Wei Yi's level, but at the age of 17 and rated 2672 he's clearly a promising prospect. You can read about his victory in the Russian Higher League here. The report includes some game fragments and a full game, lists the full field for the Russian Championship (which takes place from August 8-21), and also gives the lineup for another tournament he's playing in that starts this weekend. That event features the U.S.'s own current super-prodigy, Sam Sevian, who is still but 14 years old and rated 2578. Yikes.
Russian GM Vladislav Artemiev is 16 years old and rapidly approaching 2700; that's pretty good even by the standards of contemporary prodigies. More about the young soon-to-be superstar here.
