by Sagar Shah - 03/12/2019

It often happens that we have questions in our mind about chess improvement, the way to study chess systematically, tournament preparation, physical fitness and more. In such situations it would feel so nice to have a person, who has already walked this path, answer the questions, guide us on our journey. A chess grandmaster is someone who has gone through the grind and has been able to come out of it successfully. Hence, on 3rd of December 2019, GM Swapnil Dhopade will be present in the ChessBase India studio for an hour long interactive session with the viewers of ChessBase India and answer your questions on how to get better at chess. The session is open for all and free of cost and the instructions on how to attend are given in the article below.

Swapnil Dhopade is India's 40th grandmaster. Hailing from the town of Amravati, Swapnil became the first GM of Vidarbha region. His achievement is especially praiseworthy as he came from a background where there was absolutely no chess culture. A self-made player Swapnil has improved as a player by studying a lot of books and his own games. The highlight of his chess career was when he performed at an Elo of 2768 at the Isle of Man International 2017. Since 2018, Swapnil has stopped playing competitively as a player and has shifted his focus to becoming a full-time trainer. Having a wealth of knowledge he now tries to impart it to the youngsters of Indian chess through his academy called Chess Pathshala. GM Raunak Sadhwani, IM Sankalp Gupta, IM Harshit Raja are some of Swapnil's high performing students.
