Chess Training Methods for Rapid Improvement

Post by charlesgalofre » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:01 am

Hey guys I wanted to run a chess trianing system that I have developed based on the use of databases.

(http://chesstrainingschool.com/why-how- ... l-improve/)

basically the essence of the method is that chess is a game of patterns, and that a formal method of training should involve the proper structuring of positions (material) in every phase of the game, including your own games.

You can see a break down of the system here, as well as the 5 Databases needed for rapid chess improvement.

if you have questions, remarks or suggestions, I am all for them

Thanks,

Charles

This sort of advertisement should be place in the Adverts section and not repeated several times!

Same advert appeared on Red Hot Pawn with exact same wording.

Might as well paste my post on there on here.

-----------------------------------------------

$100 for two hours a month.

Then has a link to Wiki to tell you what a Chess Master is. :?

I may be misunderstanding the lad but is he suggesting as
an opening rep for Black:

Ruy Lopez: Graf Variation:
Ruy Lopez: Exchange Variation
Two Knights Defence
The Scotch Game

You cannot force a White player into the Exchange Lopez.
White has to do the exchanging on c6 and it is the same with the Scotch.

You book up on the Black side of a Scotch hoping one day someone
will play it against you?

It's not quite how an opening rep works.

The Exchange and the Scotch for White yes, but for Black? I'm a little confused.
It's a bit like asking:

"What's the best Opening for White?"

and being told:

"The French Defence."

This made me chuckle under the section.

Businessman Opening Repertoire

(I presume this is for people who don't have the time to devout
to chess...it will still cost you $200 for 2 hours a month though).

The Businessman's rep is as follows.

The Kings Indian Attack (KIA)

KIA versus the Sicilian
KIA versus the French
KIA versus the Caro-Kann
KIA versus the …Bf5 System
KIA versus the …Bg4 System

This lad has ben reading the forum and that KIA thread.
(an endless thread on RHP)
Watch your pockets you Bg2 guys, you have been spotted.

Anything for me?

Gambit Opening Repertoire for White:

Sicilian Defence – Wing Gambit
Danish Gambit
French Defence – Wing Gambit
Caro-Kann Defence – Fantasy Variation

Well well well, by a very strange coincidence the first four exact same
reps as recommended by Nigel Davies in Gambiteer I.
He even has them in the exact same order.

Nigel's Reads:

Sicilian Defence, Wing Gambit
Danish Gambit
French Defence, Wing Gambit
Caro-Kann Defence, Fantasy Variation

The only difference being a '-' instead of a ','.

(Knocking them into alphabetical order would have made it less obvious).

So I pays my $100 for someone to send me bits out of a book I already have
or anyone can pick up for $12.00 (I got mine for a few quid 2nd hand).

So Charlie, what else do I get for my $200.
A felt tipped pen to write the word 'MUG' on my forehead?

Hey thanks for noticing. Lessons are obviously not for you :)

its, 2 for 100, 4 for 150 and 10 for 350.

The System could be read about here: http://chesstrainingschool.com/why-how- ... l-improve/

Read that carefully and if you have questions I will answer them for you. By far the best chess training online.
The openings are superfluous.

I wasn't even sure what a Graf variation actually represents, despite usually meeting 1 e4 with e5. It appears it's some sub-variation of an idea in the Closed Spanish once suggested by Keres, namely ... Nf6-d7.

I wish this man would stop using my avatar. I keep thinking "I didn't write that"!

Hi Roger - amusingly enough the Graf variation is the Nigel Davies recommendation for Black in Play 1 e4 e5 also published by Everyman.

:)

Sounds like a good plan to me.
Buy Nigel Davies books and charge $200 to read bits of them to people.
Wish I had thought of it.

The lad's adverts has been pulled at RHP - though they have left my reply in.
People will wonder what on earth I am talking about.
Won't be the first time that has happened. :)

This happens on BoardGameGeek a lot. Although usually these strange discussions happen when the original poster deletes all his posts from a thread.

At RHP your have one hour to edit or delete you post.
After that it stays up untouched forever.

If you want to remove something after that your best bet
is to start naming all the players you think are using a box and cheating.
Then the whole thread gets pulled and you get a 1 month forum ban.

Never 'yet' had a ban (never said anything I regretted) but have had
a few warnings about dropping hints that players have cheated.

Got a warning once for trying to organise a gag.

I was in this clan of 50 or so members and we were going to challenge
a random unaware 1300 player to a game each.
(having 50 games on the go at the same time is the not unusual there).

We would all lose on purpose pushing his grade higher and higher
and keep doing this till he got to No.1 spot.
Then we stop playing him.

The powers that be got wind of it and I got a severe bollocking.
