I have purchased the Club play

I have purchased the Club player's manifesto and the comprehensive beginners package (10 DVD's + Bonus), and I have to say, I am quite impressed. I am learning so much - from the beginners - that I can guess something like 60-70% of a famous grand-masters moves without in depth analysis. They repeat key ideas a lot, so they are easy to remember. I have gone through most of the prequel - the beginners one - and it is great. I skimmed the Club player's manifesto, and it looks even better! I look forward to all of the quality study in this package. The bonus is it contains puzzles and summaries of all of the DVD's and is also more advanced than the beginner - which is well worth it! I am 1694 USCF and the dvd's had a huge part in my improvement (I was less than 1100 last January)

As a retired man, I have reali

As a retired man, I have realized that I need a new hobby and I really want to learn to play chess. I know isn't easy but now, at the end of my professional career, I have extra time to practice with some friends and even with my grandsons. I appreciate this effort to get all the people whom want to learn from you.

This is a good DVD set for beg

This is a good DVD set for beginners or those with a little experience. Grand Master Damian Lemos is a great teacher and having the accompanying pdfs is like having the notes for class made for you by the professor.
