Jacob Aagaard makes a December to remember
Award winning author and one of the best coaches in the world today, GM Jacob Aagaard visited Dibyendu Barua Chess Academy and had a five-day camp for a few selected chess players. We all know how much Jacob loves interacting with kids. He enjoyed his visit to DBCA last time earlier this year back in April, and he decided to visit the academy one more time. Only this time for a longer duration. Everyone benefited a lot by attending his sessions. This report is about what happened in those five days and how he captivated everyone's attention with his ever enchanting and inimitable persona.

Decision making was the topic of Day 1. Highlight of the day was the beautiful game he showed which took place early in this year's FIDE Grand Prix Moscow 2017 between Dutch numero uno Anish Giri and United Arab Emirates no.1 player Salem Saleh.
