Well I prefer to choose Kramnik and Peter. But if he wants to learn how to play mindblowing moves in time trouble then Grischuk is best in the world.
My fav. Coach lists includes.
1. Coach Avetik.
2. Coach Gabuzyan
3. Anonymous my teammate mentor hehehe.
1. I would love to have a world champion who has already achieved the title as my coach like kramnik or anand etc
2. to be honest i have never had "coaches", chessmood is the first place where am meeting strong trainers like GM Avetik
I really like the article and have just filled out the form for finding a coach.
The sentence that gives (for me) the most important point is:
Therefore you want to work with your coach on things that you couldn’t have done alone!"
What does this mean for me being an "Adult Improver" (wife and two kids, full-time job, 49 years old, FIDE ELO around 200):
I do know "how to study" and I have a general idea of drawing a study plan that fits my needs and framework conditions.
I do have the ability to focus and work hard for my goals. But sometimes I do need a kind of external "push". Taking part in the closed tournaments and webinar is an important "push" for me as I can see how fellow PRO-members improve and compete for our coaches's praise. And do want to beat Tom soon :-)
I have a limited ability to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses or to put it differently my understanding/knowledge and the ability to apply it in a practical game. Therefore, I can not put together the best possible study plan and cannot adjust it as early as possible. I guess this would be the main field of work for my coach.
Do you have any suggestion on how a chess coach like myself who has a full-time job unrelated to chess, but loves the game and loves to coach, can improve his skills as a coach?
I really liked the article and have will fill out the form for finding a coach.
