Hi Natalia. I love the Chess Tactics puzzles that you post frequently. However, the answers that are posted are sometimes 4 or 5 moves long, so they can be difficult to visualise. Would it be possible for you to use the same kind of boards that are used on chess.com where one can move the pieces, or view the moves on the board by clicking on the arrows at the bottom of the board?
Comment: Will think about it. The problem is there are often sub-variations, I don't like the "play the one and only move" approach.

I have been following your profiling of chess in different countries and i wonder why a country of 130 million people like Nigeria has no single GM. i intend to go all the way though. How do i chose my opening repertoire?? 1.e4 or 1.d4 what do you suggest?
Comment: You can start with the classical 1.e4 and switch to 1.d4 later on (if you wish). The road to becoming a GM is long and tough though.

Hey, thanks for the add on FB, i have a question for you, right now i consider my self approximately ELO 1700 i intend to train and improve my chess to be at least ELO 2300 (strong master)what training process/method do GMs go through example magnus carlsen.what are the things i need to learn and master to be very strong? my ambition is to become a Grand master (or grand master stregnth) within the next 3 years.
Comment: It's extremely hard to get from 1700 to 2300 in just 3 years. It actually took Magnus Carlsen longer than that... :) You will have to play about 70-100 rated games per year against strong opponents, study chess regularly (and, probably, with a coach). And success is not granted. 
 
I write articles on chess improvement every week, follow them if you're interested. It's impossible to answer such a global question in just a few words...

Вы получили наше письмо?
Comment: Геннадий, письмо получила, отвечу. Сейчас просто в переездах сплошных, да еще турнир во Франции. Крайне мало свободного времени.

Natalia, good luck for your chess career.. can i ask something? is it possible i can improve my chess game without any coach? i'm only playing in chess.com and my rating has been stuck at 1300-1400 all along..
Comment: Thanks! It's certainly possible given that you study chess a lot on your own the smart way.
