This was what started my journey to finding the answers to that first gm. And it has been an interesting journey indeed. I started out being Wowed by the passion and energy our young players have. All that potential if that energy could only be guided. What cant they do with such passion. And as I watch them grow up and I have been in chess for 8 years now, I see the fire slowly die out for the vast majority.
And not just in chess either. As some of our Juniors have commented here, they begin to lack discipline etc. etc.
So in this blog, I have tried to find the answers to the malady. And I think you will see some of them here too if you care to look.
