What do you like about CTS?

How Karpov Wins: Game 1

George Jempty playing chess moves from memory of the first game in the collection "How Karpov Wins"

"Yeah i can learn a lot from Karpov because he plays "open" openings, but is more patient than me. By the way, the few times I've done this memorizing of a couple of world champion games, I've had some of my best tournament results immediately thereafter. I'm convinced it's a valid training technique."

Do you personally use CT-Art 3.0?

How do you keep track of accuracy there?

How did you become a close friend of GM-Seirawan?

How do you find time to blog so much? And how do you find time to study chess so much?

What is your rating?

When did you first start playing chess? And when did you start back into chess?

Why do you consider bullet (0/4 variety) to be not only chess, but so recommended?

What books do you recommend, and would make the core of an aspiring chess players working library?

Not to laugh, but seriously, why do you so ardently recommend against both careers either as an architect or broker? What is needed to succeed in the latter, and how can I start, if I must?

Do you still accept new students, in coaching personal effectiveness and time management, and goals without charge? What is required?

Who was your guru?

Special thanks to BDK for helping me set up this segment! Thank you BDK! You are the best.

Add: How do you have so much energy and how much caffeine do you drink in a typical day?! j/k, but seriously the intensive study plan you follow would be challenging for most not just in terms of how many hours there are in a day, but also in terms of keeping the momentum going for the long haul.

Also, what is your long-term goal? I know your study plan already, but suppose tomorrow you found a genie in some forgotten corner of your store and he snapped his fingers and your entire study plan was complete. Where would you be then? I mean, after you finally played a good game against Yasser. ;)

(PS - I hope you could find a better use for a genie than know, like getting the phone number of that woman in your photos.)
