National Master Evan Rabin, CEO of Premier Chess

In Episode 241, I converse with International Master Yaacov Norowitz, who has taught chess for 20+ years. He learned chess from our Westchester Instructor and 180th Podcast Guest Dr. Richard Lewis and Grandmaster Roman Dzindzichashvili. He won first place in the 2003 Jerusalem Championship. In 2013, Yaacov achieved norms in the Philadelphia World Open, Bahamas Open and Reykjavik Open, thus securing the title of International Master (IM).

We speak about the nonsense of ratings, blitz, last-round situations, Jewish education, Nittle Nacht, dacha, his Chessable courses, endgames, opening preparation or lack thereof, book recommendations, confidence and more.
