Preparation for Pan-Am Youth

I have been training pretty hard for the Pan-Am Youth Chess Championships 2009, Mar Del Plata, Argentina. I will be playing in Under-8 section as the official representative from US.

My training included a mix of chess studies, physical exercises and mental preparation. For past five weeks I have been doing 5-6 hours of chess training everyday with very few exceptions.

Running 20-30 minutes every morning to help me increase my stamina. Pan-Am would have two games a day. I hope to keep myself in top shape for the second game of the day.

Chess studies included: solving tactics from book, End games problems, compositions and studying GM games. Self study was a large part of my preparation however I did get plenty of coaching sessions as well.

I will be departing on 14th morning and arriving at Mar del Plata on 15th afternoon.

Some information links for the event Pan -Am:

I hope to keep you all posted.

Wish me luck!
