By Matt Monta
Over the weekend, the players got the opportunity to work with Kasparov and FIDE Senior Trainer Michael Khodarkovsky in intensive training sessions designed to test their limits and help them grow and expand their already powerful abilities. According to the KCF, “The training session was the usual combination of hectic and intense. Variations were thrown around so often it was important to pay attention and keep up and calculate in your mind!”
