Master Class with GM Li Chao

The annual Gibralta Chess Congress is in its 12th Edition. Most interesting for me is the Master Class that are conducted nightly. I followed GM Li Chao's class and found it most entertaining.

Li Chao's English has progressed a lot from just a few phrases to holding a full master class in English.  Definitely not for the less confident in the English language. But I found it funny every time he pronounced the word  "usual" without the "s"!

From the chess perspective, it is very informative as Li Chao explains what is going on in the mind of a top grandmaster. Very instructive is how he presents the concept of "waiting" in the first game. I believe this is something from the Chinese School of Chess.
