[lang_nl]Filmpje met GM Mark Bluvshtein[/lang_nl][lang_en]GM Mark Bluvshtein video[/lang_en]

[lang_nl]Na de laatste ronde van het First Saturday Toernooi sprak ik met de jonge Canadese grootmeester Mark Bluvshtein. Hij vertelt het een en ander over zichzelf en laat vervolgens de fantastische partij Vajda-Bluvshtein zien, gespeeld op het First Saturday. Mark noemt ook zijn hoogtepunt tot dusver: zijn overwinning met zwart in 23 zetten op Alexei Shirov. Beide partijen kun je onder het filmpje in de gameviewer naspelen. Veel plezier![/lang_nl][lang_en]After the last round of the First Saturday Tournament I spoke with the young Canadian grandmaster Mark Bluvshtein. He tells about himself and then shows the fantastic game Vajda-Bluvshtein, played at the First Saturday. Mark also mentions his best game so far: his victory with Black in 23 moves over Alexei Shirov. You'll find both games in the gameviewer under the video. Enjoy![/lang_en]

Nice video with Mark Bluvshtein! Also some great play in the two games shown!

Hopefully Mark will join the 2600 club soon :)
