Miro chooses Mumbai for his two day camp on 11th and 12th of April

by Sagar Shah - 08/04/2018

A day ago we wrote about GM Evgenvy Miroshnichenko. The Ukrainian GM is in India for a "secret training session" with two highly talented youngsters from the 1st to the 10th of April 2018 in Kolkata. On 11th and 12th Miro will be in Mumbai at the Chess Guru Academy in Bhandup, Mumbai. It's a training camp where you can learn from a former 2700+ rated grandmaster and the fees are also pretty affordable (Rs.7200 for 12 hours). The topics that will be covered are types of mistakes, organizing the calculation process, finding unsual moves, endgame and opening training and more. 

Miroshnichenko is a former 2700 grandmaster who is currently in India for a training camp in Kolkata with two of the talents of the city (It's a top secret. Can you guess who they are!). Miro has been to India before, but this was the first time that he was in India as a trainer. Previously, he was in Mumbai as a player and was joint first at the Mumbai Mayors Cup 2009.

A quick interview with Miro by ChessBase India editor Shahid Ahmed

When Miroschnichenko planned his trip to India, he kept two days free at the end of it to go to any city and train the players of that place. On 6th of April we published an article on ChessBase India if anyone would be interested in inviting Miro to their city/academy. We got a lot of requests from different places (Tamil Nadu, Bangalore, Kolkata etc.), but finally the city decided for the camp was Mumbai on the 11th and 12th April 2018. 

The founder of Chess Guru Academy in Mumbai, Amit Panchal told us, "When I read about a player of Miro's calibre was in India and had two days reserved to teach in any city of India, I knew that it was an opportunity I couldn't miss. I immediately contacted him and he was kind enough to accept the invitation. This camp will be a great value addition for the players of Mumbai. To have a 2600+ GM, who once had a rating of 2700, has played with the best players in the world, including a draw with Anand, is surely something that the budding talents must not miss out on. The camp is open for everyone and those who enroll will be ensured of two days of comfortable chess learning at the Chess Guru Academy."
