Armenians dominate the first five rounds

This presents an opportunity for the warriors to recuperate and prepare for the decisive battle in their campaign to win the European chess throne. It is also an opportunity to, after 5 rounds, do a small summary of the competition so far. Read more… »

Interview with the Chairman of FIDE Trainer’s Commission Adrian Mikhalchishin (Part 2)

News |

Ivan Mandekic: You have worked as a trainer in many countries, most recently in Slovenia. What can you say about the talents and the training work outside Russia?

Adrian Mikhalchishin: In Russia and the former Soviet Union there were even trainers’ faculties. I know a few people from this region who studied in Moscow, Zsuzsa Polgar in Minsk, and at these institutions an enviable level of trainers was created, but now the number of these institutions is getting smaller. In the West there is a big problem with the basic level of education. In this sense Yugoslavia was always better because there was a tradition and people who have passed on the knowledge from generation to generation, but these trainers were not appreciated enough. I, as president of the FIDE Trainer’s Commission, think that the trainers do not work enough on bettering themselves. They should pay more attention to learning psychology, pedagogy and work methodology. Read more… »

Interview with the Chairman of FIDE Trainer’s Commission Adrian Mikhalchishin (Part 1)

Adrian Mikhalchishin

To begin our conversations about chess, I think we could not choose a better speaker than a chess expert, publicist and erudite, Adrian Mikhalchishin, the Ukrainian grandmaster with a Slovenian passport, the Chairman of FIDE Trainer’s Commission. Adrian is just old enough to connect us and take us back to the time of past greats such as world champions Max Euwe, Mikhail Botvinnik, Vasily Smyslov, Mikhail Tal and the young Anatoly Karpov and Gari Kasparov, but he’s also young enough to familiarize us with the contemporaries and the current champion Magnus Carlsen as well as other top chess players of the younger generation.
