  • The first few sessions will be spent in understanding your game and playing style and based on that we will create a working plan working on your strengths and weaknesses.
  • The sessions will primarily focus on improving your middlegame, endgame and analytical knowledge. We will focus very little on your opening knowledge, as it’s not the most important thing for players upto 2200 rating level.
