If your planning to study chess 12 hrs a day, u either have no life. Or your unemployed, living on a obama bridge card and still have no life. Or your living in motheres basement with no cash and again (ZERO LIFE)
what about the beginning and middle game? They are just as important! :)
Of course.The idea u can play high level chess w/ only excellent end-game technique is true in part. If u lack good( ditto openings) middle game skills chances are u will find yourself seeing not end-game problems, but mating nets that end at the middle game stage.
Even in Russia, all the students of the Botwinnik School do not become Super GMS, neither all students of top russian coaches. Why? Most of the chess players have only presumptions about themselves. Only a few talented come up. So talent definitely counts.
What about Vishy Anand? He had no coaching at all! I know this cos at one time we lived in the same town, and we played the same tournaments.
You're too obsessesd with talent,You unintetionally discourage many people!You should be a little more considerate about his feelings.
