Aug-22-06  blackjacki2: How could he be the trainer of a much stronger player?
Aug-22-06  oklahomakid: That is the way it always is with a successful trainer--your students out-pace your own performance.

Have a happy day!

  GrahamClayton: <blackjacki2>How could he be the trainer of a much stronger player?

I think that the role of a trainer is to set up the schedule and structure for the player, eg 2 hours a day on openings, followed by 2 hours on endgames, etc. I don't think that top players have the discipline to do this.

Aug-22-10  TheRavenPK: Look at, for example, Tal and his trainer Koblents. Tal was able to beat him in cca his 15, but there is always a LOT what can young player learn from older Master.. There are surely many things Karjakin has to learn, not strictly in chess, but how to think, how to take the stress and everything..
Aug-22-10  rapidcitychess: Training young Karjackin must be hard... I mean come on, trying to stop him from karjackin' your car again? Please. Karjackin is that boy's last name.
