Stig. a friend of mine and student from Sweden asked me:
"Attila, what is your 3 main questions you ask yourself before you do a move , maybe you could also ask the great player S. Karjakin, if you do the same or not?"
I replied him this:
"I ask these questions before I make a move:
1.What does my opponent want with his last move?
2.Is there a possibility to win with a combination?
3.What moves helps me to go closer to my long term goals?
4.If I play the move which I want to move, then what possibilities I may give to my opponent?
5.Am I ready to deal with his reaction?
I sent your question to Sergey Karyakin and wait for his answer."
I just got a message from Sergey Karyakin, who is the 7th best player of the World and the record holder of the world youngest grandmaster.
