Fourth ChessBase India show with super coach R.B. Ramesh on 5th April at 5 p.m. IST

The man who helped Team India win its first team medal the Olympiad - Bronze at Tromso 2014. Ramesh was the coach of the team.

A small story at this point would be appropriate. Amruta and I are travelling with Jacob Aagaard to different cities all over India. Our last stop was Chennai. It was a star-studded session that we were looking at. There was the young Karthikeyan Murali, Aravindh Chithambaram both nearly 2600 on the Elo scale. Then there were these experienced GMs like M.R.Venkatesh, Sundararajan Kidambi, Shyam Sundar, Vishnu Prasanna. 


Jacob would give sheets of six positions to all these players and they would have to solve them and write their answer on the sheet. By mistake Jacob gave Ramesh the wrong sheet to solve. Ramesh blitzed through the six positions and then he got the right sheet and breezed through them as well! :) He was still in prime form! And this is after nearly 12-14 hours of coaching each day.


How does this man manage all of it? Well, you will know at the 4th ChessBase India show on 5th of April at 5 p.m. IST.
