How to Study Chess at Home

Or it could be titled “An IM’s Workshop.”  IM D. Salinnikov wrote a brief article on how he studies chess that may be of some interest to serious students. It can be found at the Grandmaster’s Club site HERE.

He made an interesting comment in the article: “In September 1997, arriving home from the Ukraine, about 2 weeks I worked on chess 14-16 hours a day, and six months later there was a huge progress: in three open tournaments in a row, I completed International Master norm, and raised the rating from 2370 to 2490.” Wow!  That’s a lot!
