    I would pay more money than I have to get my rating up there but I just hope it doesn't just fall back down. I choose +1000. :)

    For some reason, I read the question in the metaphorical sense - as in, the Wizard of Chess is the greatest teacher and the money spent is his rates.  So at that rate, hell yes I would pay.  But if magic is magic, then I agree with all those who protest the idea of waving a wand and being a chess god.  That just sounds like cheating.

    For everyone who gets a magical chess skills upgrade they must afterwards do the following to the wizard:

      and then   

    Any body tells him he is   will be shot.

    oh i see now. this was a product survey. no, chess.com will be lucky if i ever pay for any membership. but yes i would pay over a grand to get to 2400 and recoup my losses through gambling with suckers.

    I'd pay more than $1000 as long as it required no large time commitment, ill health etc. Of course, this assumes that it corresponds to increased skill level too.

    Then, I could easily recoup that money in tournaments. Plus, I'd enjoy being that much better.

    I'm right now at an lower level and also I have only 50 dollars in my bank account so I pretty much not in the mood to buy it.

    It's also a lot expensiveYellYellYell

    I'm currently about 1700, so to get to 2400 would cost me $1400.

    I would definitely pay that!

      If it is legal then why not spend money? My FIDE rating is 2057 so I would need to spend $686 to get an IM title.

    If you suck at chess then you suck at chess----you will lost your magic rating increase the moment you start playing upper level players.
