Professional Chess Coach and Author Mato Jelic Shares Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster
Adelaide, South Australia, 2018-Apr-29 — /EPR Network/ — Becoming a Grandmaster is a coveted dream for all chess enthusiasts around the world, but not all of them can make it. Successful coach and popular author Mato Jelic has recently discussed how to become a Grandmaster.
Mato Jelic, a highly experienced professional chess coach and the author or two chess books, has recently shared useful tips to help chess enthusiasts in their pursuit to become a Grandmaster. Mato is the founder of one of the world’s most popular YouTube channels related to chess, through which he offers free online chess lessons.
The World Chess Federation (FIDE) has its own set of guidelines and requirements for becoming a Grandmaster. The players must attend official FIDE tournaments and clinch top positions on at least three occasions to qualify for the process. They should continue to attend such competitions known as norms, until their score reaches the 2,500 mark.
Improving his or her chess skills is undoubtedly the foremost requirement for anyone to become a Grandmaster. According to Mato, this can be accomplished by following the tips mentioned below.
Learning the tactics: These are the move sequences that can put a player in an advantageous situation and defend or capture pieces. Forks, discovered attacks, and pinning are some of the most important tactics in the game of chess.
Knowledge of strategies: Once a player reaches the advanced level, they must have a core strategy for each match. Mato also stresses on the importance of strategies such as Nimzo Defense, Sicilian Defense, spacing strategies, and many others.
Proper execution of endgame situations: A clever endgame strategy is extremely important because a poor endgame can very easily spoil all the previous good work.
Regular practise: Any aspiring Grandmaster must practice as often as possible against top level players with a thorough understanding of the advanced tactics and strategies. Mato recommends joining a chess club or popular chess sites such as Chess.com
In addition to mastering chess skills, Mato mentions that the different personality traits of an individual can make a serious impact on his or her chances of becoming a Grandmaster. “Ultimately, Passion, inherent talent, competitiveness, discipline, along with a supportive environment, can make all the difference between success and failure,” he says.
A resident of Adelaide, South Australia, Mato is the founder of Chess School SA, a training school that offers chess classes throughout the Adelaide Metro and across the Country Schools in South Australia. He also runs many popular training programs for kids.

Chicago, IL, 2018-Apr-19 — /EPR Network/ — The editors of Vital Speeches of The Day today announced this year’s winners of the Cicero Speechwriting Awards.
Now in its 11th year, the program is presented by the magazine in conjunction with the Professional Speechwriters Association, and is open to speechwriters worldwide from any area of the public and private sectors. A panel of speechwriting experts judge entries based on several criteria, including substance, style, and coherence.
The awards go to writers in many categories, including technology, education, healthcare, and public policy, along with one Grand Award winner—the best of the best.
Vital Speeches Editor and Cicero Awards Program Chair David Murray noticed a trend in this year’s submissions: an increase in the use of storytelling.
“Storytelling is a compelling, memorable way to move an audience, said Murray. “In fact, most of this year’s Cicero winners used story to powerful effect—whether as a personal anecdote to connect a speaker to the audience, or, this year’s Grand Award winner, as the structure of the entire speech.”
The Grand award winner, “The Power of Story,” was written by Matthew Kivel and delivered by University of Texas President Gregory L. Fenves. The speech tells the story of the speaker’s father, who survived the Holocaust through both an incredible combination of luck and courage, and lived a life that turned out to be thoroughly worth saving.

Columbus, Ohio, 2018-Apr-04 — /EPR Network/ — When a person is arrested for a crime, one of two things will happen: either they are held until their court date, or they may be released on bail. The bail amount is determined by the judge as the amount that needs to be paid to have them released. When the defendant doesn’t have enough money (either in personal savings or from generous friends/family), a bail bond agent can be hired to post bond so they don’t have to sit in jail.
A bail bond agent charges a 10% fee in the state of Ohio, which can easily be set up as a payment plan. Paying the full amount to the court isn’t your only option, hiring a bond agent will get you out of the slammer for a lot less money. We help with the following bail services:
