There are no instant master or grandmasters.It will take about 10 years of intense pre occupation with the game for a person to reached grandmaster s level.In a research the master would perhaps spent 10,000 to 50,000 hours staring at chess positions which are comparable to that of a highly literate people that have a reading vocabularies of 50,000 words or more.The master and grandmasters not only select good moves but they often than weak players notice these moves in th first few seconds after they look at a new position.Having notice such a move,the master may continue to analyze the position before he is satisfied that it is the best moved and sometimes his analysis will show that his first impulse was wrong But his abilitiy to notice moves at a glance is always astonishing to lesser players. A master or a grandmaster can beat player of inferior skill while taking only few seconds per move and playing simultaneously against many players.
