Let's not overhype Nichushkin and Buchnevich
They are good but they are not better than Ivan and Ivan is younger, he is almost 96 born. I'd say we have a group of elite 95-players: Barbashev, Buchnevich, Tolchinsky, Goldobin(Why everyone forget this kid? He is damn good!) Nichushkin, Zadorov, Serebryakov. I think they are all on the same level and only time can tell who is better.
