What Our Members Say

My confidence has gone way up since working with you guys. Christina is a great coach!

I just want to compliment you guys on how accessible you are. It is tremendously helpful.

Jim U.S.A.

I have thoroughly enjoyed CBC Live so far and it has only been 1 month! I think it's good now but can get better and better. And for the price I think you are getting incredible value for money.

I've been attending the Intermediate and Advanced classes and I must say it's something I've been looking forward to during the week, the next session! If you want to study and learn about chess in an interactive live format this is the perfect place to do it.

I hope CBC Live continues to evolve and grow into everything it can be. Thanks and all the best to Kraig, Ben, James & Christina.

Paul U.K.

I just wanted to say that I really enjoy this format. I have never paid for chess tutoring before. The small group discussions have been very enlightening and I have learned quite a few things in just the last few weeks.  

I don't get to attend all of the live sessions due to my schedule, but I love that I can go back and watch the recording when I have time.

Chad U.S.A.

I've been really enjoying the CBC lessons so far, Kraig's advanced lessons have been particularly insightful for me. Unfortunately my diary only allows me to attend every other week currently but the ability to watch back the lessons I've missed, and even the ones I attended to re-visit material, is great.

If someone was planning to try coaching, or wanted to see what it was like, I'd definitely recommend joining. Just the ability to see 3 or 4 different coaching styles and getting a clearer idea of what might help you best is worth the cost.

John U.K.

Chess Boot Camp is already paying dividends for me and it's been just a few short weeks that I've been a member. I was able to finally beat a player I was never able to beat before. The feeling was glorious and I give all credit to Chess Boot Camp. I was also able to beat a 1400 bot for the first time as well. The training is really starting to sink in.

There are many live sessions each week and they are recorded so all members can view them when the timing is right.

I can guarantee that anyone who uses Chess Boot Camp will improve if they attend the sessions and do the work.

Thank you Ben for putting this together. It is ingenious!
