After we noticed that GM Anish Giri was reposting many of our tournament analyses on his website, we caught up with him and asked him if he’d be kind enough to do a short 20 minute interview with us. In this chess interview Anish Giri talk’s about everything ranging from recent chess cheating scandals, strategies towards improving your FIDE and more!
Anish Giri’s FIDE is now over 2700, making him the highest rated under 18 chess player in the world. And by far the youngest player in the Top 25 by a margin of 2 years!
How to be a Grandmaster Series
People always want to know how Grandmaster’s achieved the extraordinary feat of becoming a GrandMaster. I noticed most Grandmaster interview’s focus more on recent and upcoming tournament’s and do not focus on how they became a GrandMaster.
Hardwork and talent but that isn’t all …
While most people assume that becoming a GrandMaster is simply a formula of natural talent and hard work, we’ve discovered there is more to the secret formula. Our interview series hopes to unlock these “GrandMaster Secrets” so we can learn to not only work harder, but smarter as well.
More video and text interviews on the way
Our GrandMaster Interview series includes both audio and video interviews on our YouTube as well as text interviews with corresponding games on our site. We hope you enjoy these grandmaster interviews. Comments are appreciated and if you have questions you’d like to ask future grandmasters, let us know.
