Today Ben Finegold presents part 2 of his series on Grandmaster Preparation, highlighting the benefits of being well prepared, not only for what might happen on the board, but for the practical aspects of being confident, using less time than your opponent, and taking that experience into future games. He reviews a sharp game in the Sicilian that ultimately leads to an interesting, and rather peculiar Rook Ending.
