    Hello Anyone out there - I would like to develop my chess and would
    like ssomeone to coach me and as Dave (Schliemann) Seems to be
    coaching half the world - I would like some help if any of the chess
    greats could spare the time or would like to share their knowledge -
    My basic standard is OK but I seem to be using the same moves and
    techniques to get wins and would like to play a more expansive game
    with sacrifice moves and the like.
    I do not know about gambits and things like that and would like some
    direction whether by instruction or by advising some books - websites
    that are worth going to.
    THIS SITE IS JUST THE BEST and have just invested $18 in a star -
    awaiting my VISA to clear (touch wood) - which I advise everyone to
    do, to show support to the efforts of Chris and Russ.

    Essay over - but I would like to have some help to get to that damn
    elusive 1500

    Thanks All

    It seems like half the world doesn't it...I need to start charging and
    make a living on here...but oh well.

    Send me an email Simon and we will go over what you are looking to speak of gambits...but right now with your rating solid
    openings are needed...gambits will come later.

    So email me and we will go from there.

    Thanks Dave - just some good books or something would be enough,
    I know you seem to have become the God Father of the Site. So I
    dont want to take up your time.

    To make things worse - I thought Gambits were Openings !!
    Nevermind thats why I need to do some research !!

    Thanks - I will drop you a line.
