Hey champion!

You can find GM Avetik's interview with 2021 European Champion GM Anton Demchenko in our blog:

Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas about it here.

I liked that about the "healing springs" of chess knowledge. It seems is difficult to find without the help of a coach.

Could you be more extensive about that in a future article?

Super interesting interview. You love the game, you have talent, you work hard. And from one day to another your rating drops from 2670 to U2600. Chess is really a tough game.

Thank you, Llorenc :) 
Well, Right coach, clearly gonna help to speed up the growth. 
But without coach, but with right courses, also possible. 
I know many GMs who got there without having coaches. 
Myself, I had coaches for a short time periods. 

Right source, right direction, right guidance - it's what important!

Thank you very much for an enlightening interview which is very useful for amateurs (who desire improvement) like me. The interview is an  inspirational message as well as a strategic action plan for chess players who have higher plans in their chess career.

Notable in this interview is the requisite for establishing a good mood(e.g. good physicsl condition, playing good moves or games not necessarily focusing on the tournament outcome, etc.) while playing which is paramount as expounded in this sharing community (i.e. Chess Mood)

Right mood is important to find the right (best) move!

Again many thanks to Chess Mood!
