    The "World's Youth Stars" chess tournament is devoted to the memory of Vanya Somov (20 February 1990-31 July 2002). He could have rightfully been a participant of this representative competition. But Vanya's star burned brightly and faded away having no time to shine in the sky if chess.

    Though young, he was a rightful member of the team of the World champion 1999 Alexander Khalifman at the World Championship in Las Vegas, at the biggest International tournament in Linares (2000) at the math play with the leading young grandmaster of the world P. Leko in Budapest (2000).

    In his chess biography he took part in such bright events as the Youth Championship of Russia (Sochi-2002), World Junior Championship (Spain-2000), International chess tournaments in Helsinki, Dortmund, Maintz, Sankt-Ingbert. He played for his school, town and Leningrad Region at the All-Russia's competitions, twice he became the winner of chess tasks and etudes in the Academy of Chess Art in St. Petersburg.

    Vanya was surprisingly talented and kindhearted boy with a big sole and a special sunny smile.

    To the Memory of Vanya Somov

    My idol - hermit from Montreau
    Invented difficult a problem,
    His bishop's still
    And knight's not moving
    And queen is ready to withdraw.

    My Vanya's gone so far away:
    We could have found the right solution
    By moving chess men with illusion
    While drinking milk:

    And waiting for his sleep to come
    And pattering the poet's verses
    He could have read some sonnets slowly
    An envoy, angel or my chum.

    This world has changed.
    My Prince has gone
    And pizza's found on the table
    And melodies unplayed by him:

    Gennady Nesis
