I have known Shyam for many years .He is extremely hardworking and a genuine chess enthusiast. He has worked with me in some of my critical tournaments and I had learnt a lot from these experiences. The role of coach is most important for any sports person , so definitely having a dedicated and experienced Grandmaster like shyam in your side would be great for youngsters.
Shyam has played in international level for years,he knows there are other factors involved besides the chess work. Was easily approachable during my tournaments and kept my morale high whenever event wasnt going so well.It is a combination of quality chess work and psychological boost to work with him
I was in tough situation when I started working with Shyam,he made sure that I am focused and work for specific schedule every day that fetched me the life changing result in Para Asian Games. He has good opening knowledge that helped me to build a nice opening repertoire.
Shyam Anna has been my mentor around 2 years, has helped me immensely to develop my over the board confidence and also guided me in taking off the board decisions. During the event,He made sure that i am in good psychological mindset which made me play well. He had identified my weakness in the game and we had worked towards overcoming them successfully..
