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.

New Experiment Reveals ‘DNA of the mind’: Mystery Of Human Intelligence Solved

LONDON, UK, 2017-Jul-19 — /EPR Network/ — A solution to the ‘hard problem’ of human consciousness has finally been found, explaining how our minds work. In his new book, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, British author R R Deehan provides a simple and testable answer to a question that has long puzzled scientists and philosophers:- how do our minds bootstrap their way to consciousness? According to R R Deehan, “The answer was right under our noses all along, and it’s incredibly obvious, once you know what to look for.”

Older theories, such as the idea that humans possess ‘souls’, or that our minds somehow result from quantum effects, have failed to solve the hard problem, usually because they can’t be tested. In ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, R R Deehan offers a short series of easy thought experiments that anybody can perform from the comfort of their own armchair. These experiments lay bare the secrets of your own mind and allow you to witness firsthand exactly why there’s a ‘you’ hovering inside your head, and what it’s capable of.

DNA is a four-letter chemical alphabet from which all living things are built, but the mental equivalent is even simpler, consisting of just three components that combine in straightforward ways to produce every aspect of your mind. The implications for this discovery are immense, and include a workable blueprint for a truly self-aware artificial intelligence based on the human model, as well as new ways to look at all the other ‘Big Questions’, such as ‘which came first? Consciousness or the universe’? With such notables as Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk warning about the possible dangers of artificial intelligence, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’ offers a way to ensure we don’t accidentally open a Pandora’s Box of uncontrollable technology that could cause our own extinction.
