Has anybody here ever given thought to taking lessons from a grandmaster? If anyone has actually taken lessons, I'd like to hear what the experience was like. I have considered taking lessons from Gregory Kaidanov. He's the fifth highest rated player in the U.S. with a rating of 2694 and charges only $65/hour. He also offers a deal on a whole 8 hour day of instruction for $350, which is probably what I would go with, as he lives only 3 hours away. The thing I am concerned with is how good should one be before approaching a grandmaster for instruction? I've probably still got a lot of improvement to do before I could justify the cost, but I still think it would be fun to hang out with and learn from a grandmaster for an entire day.
