This is the second time I am asking you a question.First was in your Forbes twitinterview.
I am 54 years old.I learnt chess in college days at Loyala Chennai and returned to the game at 40 and played casual chess for 12 years and then I ,on a whim,started playing tournaments all over the state.I studied chess theory in all the possible ways .I even got a FIDE rating.Surprisingly my performance in the stock markets(I am a proffessional investor in the markets for past 25 years) was fantastic in the past 2 years I played chess seriously.The reason , I think,is that I started reviewing my moves in the markets as in chess review of own games !! Enough of my
story.My question-is it really worthwhile learning by heart(memorizing based on understanding of ideas) classical games as suggested by GM Ziatdinov to improve my middlegame or is it better to tudy positional chess and attacking games?
