Join me at my seminars in Vellore and Chennai

  • Grand Master Igor Smirnov, Chess Coach, Author and Publisher.
  • Today, I’d like to remind you about my upcoming seminars in southern India. My first seminar will take place in Vellore tomorrow, 17 October and the second seminar will take place in Chennai on Sunday, 18 October.


    Both of my seminars (Vellore and Chennai) will take place according to the schedule below:

    Seminar in Vellore


    Venue: Rangalaya, 60, Vellore – Chittoor Road, Gandhi Nagar, Vellore – 6




    The topic of my lecture will be “The Art of Planning“. ‘Planning’ sounds like something complex, but in fact it simply answers the question “What should you be doing in a given position”?


    Without a clear understanding of your plan, you may easily go along the wrong path. You’ll have to analyze and calculate a lot of moves, trying to figure out the best one.


    During the lecture, we’ll analyze the right plans you should follow. We’ll go through all the stages of a game – opening, middlegame, endgame – and you’ll obtain detailed guidance for every moment of your game.




    Only the first 150 registrants will be able to attend BOTH the lecture and the simul. Therefore, a maximum of 150 students can play against me in the simul.

    The simul will be on 50 boards:


    • In case 50 or fewer people want to join the simul, each one will play individually (like in a usual chess game).
    • In case more than 50 people want to join the simul, the participants will be united into teams.




    The price for the whole seminar is only Rs. 500 ($8), which is a lot cheaper than my usual rate. Normally, I charge at least $100 for my one-hour lesson.

    designSeminar in Chennai


    Venue: MA Krishnasamy School, Anna nagar, Chennai – 600040 (check the location of the school here)




    The topic of my lecture in Chennai will be “The Right Thinking in Chess“. During the seminar, “The Right Thinking in Chess”, you’ll be able to:


    • Get clarity on how to play chess.
    • Systematize your existing chess knowledge, so that you can use your full chess potential.
    • Train the right system of thinking under my guidance and supervision.
    • Ask your questions and seek clarification about any doubts you may have.




    The simul is limited to 50 participants. The participants will play against me individually (and not as teams). In other words, it will be a standard simul. Only the first 50 registrants can play in the simul.




    Tickets for the lecture and for the simul are sold separately. Each ticket costs Rs.300 ($5). Thus, if a person wants to attend both the lecture and the simul, he/she should buy the two corresponding tickets, and the overall price (both lecture and simul) will be Rs.600 ($10).
