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:

          @HeavenlyAngelOfLove, Well, your rating is 1283(live blitz) and mine is 2135(online chess). I think you are the one who is not ready. Besides, when I tried to view your profile, it said your account was closed. It's not a good thing to make a challenge and run away.  Innocent

          The study plans come and when you are ready for them, you will know and they will be here waiting for you. Once you feel you are ready and with enough experience and practice you may choose whether or not you are going to take the leap and see if you are ready to face the advanced players. Now I am not trying to make a point here or say anything offensive but I feel that when you practice enough, then it is time. Other than that just have fun and relax and enjoy the game of chess :).

          Go to Game Explorer and look at the third move down. It is 1.e5. Try to load it. Of course it will never happen. There is a lot to do here before there will be advanced study plans. I predict the year 2510 as my best guess. Just kiddin' guys.  Tongue Out

          @renaldo: If I was a GM I wouldn't need advanced study plans. Go whine about something you know something about.Tongue Out

          We want advanced study plans. What we don't want is ppl. complaining about our complaints.  Cool

          None of you even deserve or need advanced plans, appreciate what ur given, its so ironic that you rely purely on this site for advanced plans and nowhere else I bet everyone who made a complaint had just got a higher online rating and then sudenly thought that they could do advanced study when actually they barely tried out the main study material.

          These comments are literally just filled with people constantly complaining about the lack of Advanced Plans and then people responding and then more people responding. Constantly complaining isn't gonna cut it. Chess.com has a lot of resources. As I hate to say it sisu it right. And its not really that hard to make a simple study plan for yourself. So just shut up and play.

          Just don't give up on your track of improvement and you will be GM. I belive anyone can achieve that title. Just be maniac(in term of practising).
