For everyone who gets a magical chess skills upgrade they must afterwards do the following to the wizard:
Any body tells him he is will be shot.
Once I save enough silver, I will definitely give this chess wizard a call.
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 would offer over 9000!
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.

Myself i would like to spend over 9000
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.
I would pay if my skills increased also
I think Houdini is supposed to be stronger than Rybka, actually.
Up to a max rating of 2400, or up to 2400 rating points gained?
Can you imagine if it were the latter? Magnus Carlsen could plunk down the $4800 (which would mean nothing to him), and would be rated 5221. He would then go on to play the world's top 5 chess engines (including the "dethroned" Rybka, which is still stronger than anything else if I understand correctly) in a blindfold simul...
