I`m no more a one dimensional chess player: Negi
New Delhi: He used to be a "one dimensional player" but over the years, India`s youngest Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi has adapted more "rounded and universal styles" of play which he is looking to use in the biennial Chess World Cup next month.
"I used to be a one dimensional player going just for the attack, or the complications, but I think over the years I have matured as a player. I believe I have adapted to more rounded and universal style of play. There are many different ways to play chess and I have started adapting to those styles," Negi told from Texas.
"Still, its an ongoing process and I always need to work on little parts of my game.
"I feel I have also improved in dealing with the psychological aspect but this area still requires more improvement. But such improvements don`t necessarily result in an automatic rise in the ratings as they need to be combined perfectly with the other chess traits," he added.
Negi have had a good season so far, having won the Cappelle de Grande chess event in France in February and Spring Open International chess tournament in Dallas, Texas in March.
In addition to that, he ended up winning the Continental Chess Association Open in Washington and was declared the joint winner of the USD 43,000 World Open Chess in Virginia this month.
