Training quote of the day #11: Wesley So

2017 U.S. Champion Wesley So
From a front-page article on GM Wesley So, published in the June 6, 2017 print edition of the Washington Post:
"...chess is not just about playing. It’s other aspects. I have to improve my mental state. I have to be tougher, more confident, more comfortable playing the top guys...And I also need to improve my physical conditioning, because each game can last to anywhere up to six hours and each tournament usually has around 10 games, so that’s a lot of work, and the person with more energy in the last hour has a lot of advantage.”

  1. Interesting comment of So.
    And its true. Since I decided to play it all out, no accepting draws anymore, I indeed getting very tired at end of game or tournament. Problem is that after work I dont have the time to go to the gym and find time to study chess.
