          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.

          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".
