When a young Armenian master Agassi Inants wrote me Vkontakte that invited me to visit Erevan to play in an International tournament I wanted really to fly to Armenia. The phenomenon of the chess combined team of the country is surprising and fascinating, - to win the Olympics so many times in a row, leaving behind the combined teams of Russia, Ukraine, Israel, at least not inferior in a star degree, and perhaps even superior by the absolute power of strength, - how does it turn out? Much has been said that our GMs are perfect individualists and not team players, that in Armenia there is a unique team spirit and unity in the spirit of Dumas Musketeers. But these are words, and we would like very much to see it with out own eyes Read an interesting material about the Chess Academy in Yerevan and an interview with GM S.Lputyan. We thank International Master Pavel Drugov for a current topic raised, and for this creative approach.
