In Episode 252, I have the pleaure of conversing with National Expert Pranav Shankar and his father Shankar Iyer, Client Partner at Citigroup. I met Pranav last month when he spoke on an Autism Awareness Month panel at the Marshall Chess Club. I was inspired by his perserverance, becoming a strong expert and likely future master, despite his challenges growing up with autism.
We speak about book recommendations, philosophy of ratings, positional understanding, logic vs. emotion, confidence, chess therapy for autism, over the board chess, lessons from our 75th Podcast Guest Grandmaster Alex Lenderman and more.
