A waste of money
Not worth money.
That is way too expensive!
If I was rated high enough I could make my 'investment' back... hi
I'm just too poor.
To be the best of all
I would feel better if I improved my chess skills by hard work.
Increasing skills and increasing rating is a big difference
people that said over 0 need to get a life
ha, 1100 rating points cuz that would put me at 2900 :P
If everyone got this, wouldn't chess be pointless then???
"If education seems expensive, try ignorance", the famous John Dewey once said.
nooooooooooo i hate paying for knowlegde.
With the skills of a 2400 ELO (2500 USCF), unless you live in a chess mecca, you could easily make the money back over time by crushing any and all local and state tournaments. Even in the rare event that you don't win the tournament, you'll likely still finish in the money anyway.
You could make up all the money and then some in one shot by playing in a U.S. Open event, and taking down a sectional tournament. For example, if your old rating was 1500 USCF, you could enter the U1600 tournament, and just utterly crush everyone blindfolded, and take down the first-place prize money, which should more than pay for the money you spent on the wizard.
A guy promising ME an Elo of 2400? And he's using what to achieve that? Magic? And he "only" wants my hard-earned cash for it?
I'll grab him by the neck and haul him to the next police station, what an obvious scam, lol.
Interesting that most people are either not willing to pay at all or they are willing to pay more than $1000. I guess it doesn't pay just to become an above average player but if you can get to be really good, you can make the money back from winning tournaments, tutoring and writing more chess books.
