022 How Aging Affects Chess Improvement with GM Jesse Kraai

Jun 21, 2022

If you’re over 30, you might wonder:

“Will aging affect my chess improvement?”

“Should I adjust my program any differently due to my age?”

These are compelling but often difficult questions to answer... 

On the one hand, we want to be optimistic and aim for whatever chess goal we desire, without concern over biology getting in the way... 

And, yet, biology is real. 

Athletes understand this - both amateur and professional alike. 

Which is why it’s worth taking a look at this subject with clear eyes. 

To discuss this further, I brought the esteemed Grandmaster Jesse Krai, co-founder of Chess Dojo.

In this episode we discuss: 

  • Would he coach someone differently if they’re 25 versus 45?
  • Have adult improvers proven the upper limit of their potential yet? 
  • Is Viktor Korchnoi’s astonishing late-career run in his 70s instructive for adult improver potential?
