I met GM Gufeld when he imigrated to the USA (fortunately for me), and took 150 hours of lessons, traveled to events and listened to all his stories. He teaches chess principles in story form, the kind you can picture in your head. I got back into chess recently and an 8 year old kid began getting lessons using Gufelds story form of teaching. At age 9 he won two of the national 11 and under tourneys and the blitz. Now at age twelve he is at 2460 and someone to keep an eye on. His name is Advait Patel (adi).
