          These materials have been incredibly helpful in giving me a framework to improve my game.  Please keep up the good work on this.

          For those waiting for the Advanced Plans (which is evidently many of you!), I have been running thematic tournaments featuring some of the opening systems suggested by IM Daniel Rensch. While you're waiting, you can train yourselves on these opening systems, in order to ensure that you are in fact ready for these Advanced Study Plans when they eventually arrive. Wink The Ruy Lopez Marshall Attack tournament is currently in registration.

          Advanced players: take lessons with a coach or do that university thing. Smile

          I have waited for about 2 years. That was when I had another account with a annual diamond membership. It used to say "coming soon".

          Just went through every single beginner lesson... Only took 2 freaking years!

          Seriously though, this has been unbelievably beneficial for me. I only new how the pieces moved and still was uncertain of all the rules pertaining to castling when I joined. Now I won my first tournament on here 22-5-1 and am currently 1562 (online). $99 is sure a hell of a lot cheaper than private lessons and the guys that do all the videos, articles, and so forth, have dropped some serious knowledge on me. Thank you chess.com! You kick ass ;)

          Desde que descubri esta pagina me siento muy estimulado en seguir jugando, tenia un programa en mi ordenador pero resulta aburrido jugar contra una maquina, ahora juego contra personas que piensan como yo.

          Gracias Chess.com por existir y atender tan bien a sus usuarios.
