As you might be aware, I am going to host several of my seminars in different cities in India. I’m happy to let you know that the first seminar is confirmed – it will take place in Vellore on Saturday, 17 October.

 

I invite you to attend this event and I’m sure that you will learn a lot and that we will have a lot of fun during the day. This will be a one-day event – it will start at 9:00 in the morning and run till 18:00 IST (check timings here).

 

During the seminar, you will attend my lecture where I will be sharing with you some highly important material about chess that will help you boost your chess progress, and you will be able to put your questions to me directly and get my answers right away.

 

After that, you will be able to play in the simul against me. Moreover, if you are lucky enough to win your game in the simul, you will get a special prize from me. 🙂 Also, you will be able to take part in the photo session and get your photo taken with me.

The price for the whole seminar (simul and lecture) is REALLY cheap – it’s only Rs. 500, which is a lot cheaper than my usual rate. Normally, I charge at least $100 for my one-hour lesson.

 

So, you can see Rs. 500 (which is about $8) is a really low price – and here you pay for a whole day of interaction with me. This is a unique opportunity. I do this only as a favor to my Indian friends and students, and I think that the price will never be any lower than this.

 

By the way, I understand that a lot of students suggested their native city as a place for the seminar. I understand that it’s more convenient for you to attend the seminar in your own city.

However, please understand that India is a huge country, while my time is limited, and that I cannot visit all cities. Therefore, my itinerary will be limited to four or five cities only and all of them will be in the southern part of India, most likely in Tamil Nadu state.

That’s why you are welcome to travel to the nearest city to you and attend the seminar. I’m making a long and expensive trip from Europe to India to hold a seminar for you.

Also, I’m not getting any profit from this event – I’m doing it for you. And the little money that you pay for the event will be used for the organizational expenses.

 

Hence, I hope it should not be a problem for you to travel from one city to another inside India. Even the ticket that lets you cross the whole country costs less than $50. And if you don’t need to cross the whole country, then you can attend the seminar even more cheaply and more easily.

 

Therefore, if you really want to boost your chess progress, to interact with me, and to attend this unique event, then you’re most welcome to join in.

Finally, since there are a lot of people who wish to attend this event, unfortunately we have to implement some restrictions. The seminar is open to 300 people only and once 300 tickets for the seminar are sold, registration will be closed.

 

Also, there is a limitation of 150 people for the simul. Only the first 150 registrants will be able to attend BOTH the lecture and the simul. The next 150 registrants will be able to attend the lecture, but for the simul, they will only be able to observe it but not play themselves.

 

That’s why you should hurry up. As you can see in the comments below, there are a lot of people who are interested and planning to come. So if you wish to attend, you really need to act quickly – reserve your seat now and make sure that you get the best from this event.

 

Once again, it will be my pleasure to meet with you personally after such a long time of interaction via the internet. I’m sure that it will be highly beneficial for you and I look forward to meeting you soon.

  1. My main problem is the Language, English Language. If I am good at read English – and on this day, Igor, I am reading your very good last book – I don’t understand English spoken, therefore I can’t join seminars, videos and similars.

    1. You will be surrounded by other chess students, who can help you understand the ideas you missed. There will be quite a lot of people who take care for the organizational issues of the seminar, they all are Indians, and will be happy to help you.

      At least you can play in the simul for sure 🙂

      Of course it’s up to you whether to come to the seminar or not. From my side, I can only say that I don’t visit India every day, and if you miss the event now, you may not get another opportunity in the future.

  3. Dear Igor Smirnov i purchased the ticket for seminar in vellore. Looking forward to meet u in the seminar. Little request please provide an opportunity to talk with u alone not in the seminar hall to ask questions dedicate a room for it if u want to

    1. I look forward to talk to you soon!

      I’ll reserve some time during the lecture for answering your questions, and after the simul there will be some ‘informal time’ for photos and communication.

    1. I’m not sure if the recording of the seminar will be available, and I don’t promise it at all. It’s much better to attend the seminar anyway (play in simul, talk to me and other chess fans, make photos etc).

      If you can’t come to Vellore for some reason, you may visit a seminar in another city. I’m going to make it on 18 October in Chennai, and then in a few other cities of Tamil Nadu during 20-27 October.

        1. Unless I make the recording of the seminar (which I don’t promise at all), it’s hard to expect that the recording will appear in some other way.

          After all, you’ve seen so many of my videos already. Isn’t it much more exciting to get my personal training finally?

    I am just asking because I would rather prefer these cities to Vellore..I definitely want to attend your seminar and play against you. , so if you plan not to come around these places , I would go with Vellore option too

    1. Hi Usha,
      Thank you for your interest in joining our seminar.
      We are planning to conduct one in Trichy as well.

    2. As of now, I’m going to make my seminars in Vellore and Chennai (both places are confirmed).

      Additionally, there will be 1 more seminar in another city: I’m considering Kanuyakumari or Pondi Chery. Once I can confirm it, I’ll place this info in a new blog-post.

      See you soon!

    1. yes sir you are right thankyu so much for your response god bless you .you are our idol.dear igor can you make a webinar on kasparov vs deep blue games.??

    1. Hi Ramakrisnan,

      I’m sorry about the limited amount of cities available. My time is limited, while India is a huge country – I can’t visit all the places with my seminars there.

      Apart from that, I keep the price for the seminar so low that it barely covers my expenses.

      Finally, I’m making a much longer and costlier trip to visit you. Therefore, I assume that everyone who really wishes to attend the seminar, will make his little trip to Tamil Nadu.

    1. Hi Durga,
      Currently Igor is only to planning to visit Tamil Nadu. Since India is big country it will not be practical to visit many places across India.
