A soft spoken 30 year old Grandmaster from Ukraine that has been under the radar in the recent years. Adam got his GM title in 2007 and his highest FIDE rating has been 2557. Recently he beat Magnus Carlsen
with a bit of luck but then he also lost to a 1733 player so it will be interesting to see which side of him we will get.
