"I finish in 1st place in my last tournament!"
Kesaris Aggelos (Greece):
I am A. kesaris from Greece. I study chess about 10 years and about 4 to 8 hours a day. My chess results were not so good as I expect. It was obvious that i do something wrong.
I start training with some Greek Gms and they help me a lot.
But, I make a real progress in chess when I start see the free video lessons of mr. I. Smirnov and especially when I study the Grandmaster secret! No one else, really, give before this concrete system of thinking. After that I really enjoy to play chess games and I know that I make the best moves in the position. 
With the new chess course of mr. Smirnov self-taught grandmaster I can organize everything and perfectly!
The other really important thing with this course is that he gives to us the theory and the knowledge, which we need to learn in different levels. The difficult think is not to find the material. The difficult thing is what and when we must learn something.
I love psychology. Especially the human's psychology. It is very effective in real chess games. I start psychology books but I didn't always take useful information. With this course I solve a lot of my questions!
I am chess trainer. I had create a system of training and the structure of material. Now I am 100% sure that I am in the correct way and I completely know what I can say to children and how to prepare them to be ready for the next chess level, starting study mr. Smirnov's chess courses.
The conclusion is that I am really enjoy to study and play chess regularly and now I do it with more success!
I finish in 1st place in my last tournament! So I will take the opportunity and say that your course helps me a lot! I can prove it with practical results!

i am aware that soon it is not going to be easy at all to brake elo barriers, but i just want to play good chess. i started competing for a chess club. and for the record, i am 49.
From your new couse i learned that rethinking about what was understood, polishing thinking proces and cleaning foundation or basics is firm ground for improvement. it is so great to go thru your previous couses with new excitement at the same time playing these new tests you set for us.
thank you very much for coaching! i think i can say that even i am not strong player at the moment, the way i feel the game now brings me confidence which makes me opened for achievement.

Jose Gascon, IM (Venezuela):
Hi i am a 15 years old boy from Venezuela, a Country where for me its really difficult to find a good a player that usually have a performance of 2100 in tournaments and a rating of 2000 ...
so when i see the web i see it as a chance to have a improvement of my chess. i study the course the GM Secrets and thats increidible how GM Igor Smirnov explains the most importants ideas. i began to use this ideas on tournaments and i quickly recover the money by winning Open tournaments with a lot of adult players (and thats not the best in June 2010!!)
I placed second shared first with 7/9 and performance of 2300 in the National of Experts and Masters that were playing 3 IM , 3 FM and all the other players are National Masters and National Experts. I was one of the few players without a title and i won my first title at the age of 14 !!
National Master ?? thats not the best!! recently i become the youngest International Master of my country by winning the Central American and Caribbean Junior Championship with 6,5/9 and performance of 2270. appart in this tournament i won a 9 game GM Norm.
I am really really happy with your courses and how they make effects in my chess. The best of the course is that only not explains a system of thinking in chess !!! Explains how to teach yourself and how to prepare for specific games and tournaments !!!
So i highly recommended to invest a few money buying this course and let Igor do all the rest!!! Congrats Igor Smirnov and really thanks for your help as a next objetive im planning to become GM at the age of 18!!!!! reading all your courses and following your training method !! Thank you again and bye bye...
