What should I do now to improve my skills?... What videos will help my Endgame?... Which Mentor Courses will make me a better strategist? At my level, should I be playing more - or studying more?...

... Sound familiar? Well, wonder no longer:

          What a nice wish. Unfortunately, nice wishes don't happen in this world.  Laughing

          Out of love for this site that comprises much part of my chess history (or sheer laziness of cancelling auto-payment), I continued on being a Platinum member. I hope that the Advanced Study Plan was not scrapped, abandoned or discontinued due to severe internal conflict among staffs (would or did it happened? It would be an interesting drama if this is true nonetheless!) . Please at least give us some piecemeal if this is not too demanding. Our hearts deserve no grinding and the wait should come close to an ending.

          @fabskannone: Your puzzle does appear to be flawed:

          Also, Black may play 1. ... Qa6+ in answer to 1. b7. Black wins in all variations.

          Now, there's a program for <1399 and a program for 1400-1799.

          What happens when your rating (Like mine at the time of posting) Is EXACTLY 1399? :D

          I'm kidding of course, but still funny.

          Should read ≤1399.

          I suggest you stop making rediculous suggestions. We should get what we were promised. Period.

          I suggest you look somewhere else for advanced study material.

          I'm pretty sure I will die of old age long before there are ever any advanced study plans on here.  Tongue Out

          I think that some traps would be enough to learn. I have won queen infinite times after 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qc6?? 4.Bb5! or 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Qf6 3.Nc3 Nc6 4.Nd5 Qe6?? 5.Nxc7+!

          And every opening has some traps to be played, just see them.
