    Lets see, your chess rating is under 1300 right?

    "Discover How To Dramatically Improve Your Chess Skills & Start Whipping Your Opponents In Less Moves Than Ever Before!"

    Trying to win in less moves isnt a good stategy.

    "Discover exactly how grand masters effortlessly win nearly every game they play!"

    This is total BS there is nothing effortless about being or becoming a GM its bloody hard work and not much else

    "Discover killer strategies that you can use to slaughter your competition and effortlessly win game after game!

    Learn the exact steps you need to take to start winning 80-90% (or more) of the matches you play!

    Dramatically improve your playing skills within a matter of days!


    Seriously you are not a good advertisement for your own course.....you come across like a total beginner.


    Included in this section are the relative values of the chess pieces and why it is important to know these values."

    Easy to say but the values are never static


    Increase your player rating by as much as 200% to 500%!

    Beat your opponents FASTER, EASIER, and IN FEWER MOVES than you ever thought possible!"


    You should do a comedy script

    I cant even be bothered to run through the rest, almost every chess player will read that site and laugh......what chess players want is less b***s*** and more realistic advice.

    I've seen this before. Similar flyer but different content

    Usually something like

    "Increase your Turnover by 500% - Guaranteed"

    "Never get turned down by that dream woman (man) again - Guaranteed Success"

    "Earn £5000 in 2 weeks or your money back"

    "How to select winning horses or your money back"

    "Win at Poker - Every time"

    You get my drift. I could teach you a thing or 2 about chess. You could teach me nothing that I could not find in "How to play chess for beginners by Bobby Fisher" US$9.99.

    Edit: I have managed to whip an opponent in 2 moves. How will you teach me to do less than that in "How to beat your opponent in less moves than ever before."

    Edit: I am heading for a rating of 3800-4000. Fantastic! I will learn that bit in "How to increase my rating by 200% to 500%" Hell if I make the 500% my grade will be almost 10000.

    Edit: Discover exactly how grand masters effortlessly win nearly every game they play Last time I looked most GMs only won slightly more than 50% of their games - hardly nearly every

    How many of these books/packages have you actually sold?

    Why not post a few sample pages from the book/package?

    To me it sounds like a beginners manual, under 1500.

    Money back guarantee eh? If I get this will I really improve? No, do I get my money back and keep the book?

    I like to relax in my living room and a watch a DVD where a GM shows an instuctional game on the TV. I'd much rather do that than watch sports or soap operas.

    I just read the ad. Raise your rating 200% to 500% guaranteed! So I'm going to be somewhere's between 4000 and 10,000 USCF?
    It's proof that both this guy and his publisher are ignorant about chess. I won't be buying anything from them.

    Here's another funny product which I stumbled across the other day:
    http://www.hypnosishealthcare.com/psychologychess.html

    Only someone who doesn't play chess at all could write this sort of nonsense.

    He'll teach you to be so scary that your opponents resign before the game even has started.
