The small differences which could result in complete success or total failure
There are so many extremely talented young players today from all over the world. The difference between the ones who may reach their fullest potentials versus the ones who do not will come down to a few key areas such as:
- Proper Training
- Will To Win, etc.
I remember asking many chess legends for advice (Tal, Spassky, Karpov, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Fischer, Kasparov, etc.) when I was a young chess player. I learned so much from them. Even one good advice can sometimes make a huge difference.
Unfortunately, some young players today do not even bother asking because they think that Stockfish, Komodo or Houdini have all the answers.
