Great article @GM_Avetik_Grigoryan!
If you don't mind, I would like to know this answer from you
I am 1628 fide rated player
I am a crazy opening and engines fan and focus on openings very heavily and try to out prepare opponents
I do read pawn structures (from udemy and ChessBase) and attacking play, but I still get inferior positions sometimes because of lack of opening knowledge or I sometimes mix up moves in positions that I may have drilled it the same day
My biggest fear (possibly), is I don't want equal positions directly without any fight
I love to press opponents but sometimes get pressed myself badly
My style is more tactical in nature so sometimes I lose patience and get squeezed
As of now, I can spend 3 hours max on chess but after 2-3 months, as my exams are finished, I will give 6-7 hours to chess
I would be really grateful if you could suggest to me something
Thank you so much for your reply
I am so thankful to you for guiding me !
Great article. I think an advisor should recommend books according the style of the player.
I hired in 2019 a GM who played 1.d4 and as black 1.d4 Nimzoindian 1.e4 e6, so really we stopped talking about openings since I play the Scotch, the Najdorf and the Modern Benoni. He liked things to go slowly and I played in a rush, dropping the 1780 FIDE rating in 220 points.
I too would like to know this recommendation from you Coach Avetik!
I am 13 years old and I am a very passionate player.
I am 1900 USCF and around 1600 FIDE, though both should be much higher after the virus.
My goal is to become a top Grandmaster and inspire others to learn and play chess!
I can invest 2-3 hours on chess on school days and much more on weekends.
As for my style, I like both attacking and positional chess, though I would say I like positional a little better. I love endgames as well.
P. S. As I mentioned in another forum, the National Online Scholastic Championships are coming up and I am hungry to win!
