Here is a really amazing e-mail that I got yesterday from one of my customers. This made my day!
Sorry to take up your valuable time, but I am so excited about the early results that I am seeing with your program that I just had to email you. Everything mentioned in your product info page is true!
I am up to TacticsTime newsletter number 9, and have only been doing the downloaded tactics for 3 days. Time is limited by work and family. I also started the ‘vision’ excercises in de la Maza’s book. Already, tactics are starting to ‘pop out’ at me during games. I have beaten several players in the 1500-1699 range in online rapid (15 minute) games. This is something I could have never done before since I am a class D player. This gives me the confidence to continue with your program. Maybe I will have the confidence to play in tournaments again too.
Just to confirm what you have said on your website: I have played for decades at the same level. I have read all the classic chess books and have amassed a lot of chess knowledge, but no ability. You have found the key here. Thank you. You’ve made chess fun and exciting for me again!
You are welcome to use any of the above if you wish for a testimonial.
Just FYI, I am 57 years old. My Dad taught me to play when I was 7, so I have played for 50 years. Time has been limited over the years by school, work, family and many other interests.
I am USCF rated 1273. I seriously think that with a few months of continuing with this program, that I could play regularly at the B class level and perhaps in a few years reach A. This is my goal for now. I am not setting any limits. I think the program could take me all the way to Expert, but time and my age may limit me.
I thought this was really super. Chess players like Russ are my target audience here. I have very little interest in helping the next 11 year old “boy genius” child prodigy get to 2100 in 5 months instead of 6 months.
However I love hearing from people who have been stuck for years who are able to take their game up a notch.
They aren’t trying to become grandmasters, or get on the cover of Chess Life magazine, but they know that they are capable of having a higher rating than they currently do.
This is great Russ! Thanks so much for taking the time to write me such a nice e-mail, and allowing me to share it with my readers! I’m excited for you!
