2 Losses into a Win! Interview with a Master

2 Losses into a Win! Interview with a Master

Jun 5, 2014, 7:36 AM |

I recently lost a couple games in a single week against FM NFork. I  figured since he beat me up twice, the least he could do is grant me an interview for my site www.betterchesstraining.com.

In the interview, he gave me many insights that are useful for chess training. Here are some highlights:

  • Fitness is important in chess particularly during long games and tournaments.
  • It is important to control your emotions during your games, otherwise it might lead to tactical oversights.
  • The chess engine can be a useful tool for analysis, as long as it's used in moderation after effort is made to understand your own thoughts and analyze on your own.
  • Analysis of your own games is vital for your chess development. Not just the moves, but also the motives and thoughts behind the moves.

He shares much more including one of his favorite games. Here is a link to the full interview: http://www.betterchesstraining.com/2014/06/jari-jarvenpaa-interview.html
