037 How Blitz Can Help, Time Management, & Trash-Talking w/ IM Greg Shahade

Oct 04, 2022

IM Greg Shahade always brings a good time.

His charisma and relaxed humor make for a dynamic, fun conversation in every interview he gives.

And this one is no different!

We cover a range of topics, including the difference between improving at chess versus trivia (it helps explain why chess is so difficult!), his spontaneous approach to life, and:

  • Why blitz can improve your chess if you follow his two suggestions
  • Time management advice for those who play too slow (and too fast!)
  • Will he ever do chess boxing?
  • Classic trash-talking segment against his recent rival, IM Lawrence Trent
