Success Stories of ChessMood Family Members

Right Mood - Right Move

"Becoming a Pro member of Chessmood has exceeded my expectations. It not only gives you access to "special" features on a website, but it literally gives access to a personal trainer who cares about your goals in chess and guides you through the best way to achieve them.
Chessmood isn't an average chess website, they´re doing things differently. GM Avetik Grigoryan and all the GMs of Chessmood team are really offering their knowledge and time to all PRO Members in order to help them improve in chess."

"Thank you Avetik GM Grigoryan and the entire ChessMood community! About 2 years ago I stopped progressing with my chess and actually started to slip backward. I attributed it to getting older even though I am only in my mid-40s, and just stopped playing altogether. About 6 weeks ago after talking to GM Grigoryan, I decided to give one more shot at improving my game. I registered as a PRO Member and dove into the opening repertoire. It took me a little time to adjust to the openings, as I had not played any of the suggested openings before, but now after about 3 weeks of playing, I have raised my online blitz rating over 100 points! I can't wait to see how my OTB rating improves too.
Thanks again!"

"After meeting Avetik on Facebook and talking to him for a while (which already was a big deal and honor to me- I was interacting with a Grand Master...!) I decided to give a try to the ChessMood PRO Membership. I played around for a while and quite quickly I found something that I was always looking for- a video about some good counterplay against Sicilian Defense. I've been playing chess for around 20 years already (my top blitz rating at chess.com being just above 2000) and as long as I remember I was struggling against the Sicilian.
After watching Avetik's video course about the Grand Prix attack I gave it a go at chess.com against a computer with strength around 1960. Out of 5 games, I won 5, each of them after an unstoppable attack. But winning against software is not the point here. For the first time in my life, I was actually playing chess with some long term ideas that I was aiming for and with a vision of the whole game ahead. To me, it's like discovering chess once again. The sad part is that I have a feeling that I've sort of "wasted" those 20 years cause if I had my ChessMood before I could be a proper player now. Nobody ever showed and explained the lines to me like Avetik. I'm really glad to be here and I'm certainly looking forward to more.
Thank you ChessMood Family"

"Since becoming a ChessMood PRO Member, I have had the honor and privilege of meeting Chess Lovers from around the world. I’ve also had the rare opportunity to play against a Grandmaster in a simul which was an exciting and enriching experience. GM Avetik as a coach has encouraged me to play more dynamic Chess. His insight and expertise have opened more doors for me in Chess than ever before. The variety of learning material keeps me interested and the opening courses are studied deeply so that you are able to face complex variations with little fuss. I’m still learning the hard way, but I can see how my thinking strategy has improved somewhat and I’m sure I will yield better results in the imminent future."

"Never before I played a GM before, this is an experience I could not have dreamed a few weeks ago. 
Imagine you are playing a GM there is live commentary on the same game by another GM and at the end analysis of your games by multiple GMs.
Amount of involvement from GM in this forum is unheard of. 
We are enjoying a privilege just because we are enthusiastic and we happened to land here first, I consider myself very lucky on this. 
Pro membership offers 1-1 call since I paid only very little for my membership I was very skeptic, I thought it is a marketing bluff, 15 minutes meeting was scheduled promptly. 
Guess what during the conversation the GM never ever looks at the clock, he continues to answer my questions and adds his thought in different things, when the call ended it was around 40 minutes. What I felt overwhelming that these folks love what they do, they are trying to build something great but not seeing you as ATM machine.
GM being both Grandmaster and gentleman, offers every bit of help even in private chat also. 
I was motivated to improve my chess, now I have landed in a perfect ground to achieve it.
We should protect this beautiful gift and honor/respect the creators."

Heavendeep Singh, India Testimonials

"Before joining ChessMood I had done my research on Chess Sites and personal internet chess instruction. I listened to what GM Grigoryan was offering and what the competition had to offer. I knew from the beginning GM Grigoryan and his ChessMood Team of Grandmasters offered a far superior Chess learning experience. Without hesitation, I joined, actually, before the official launch! I had already experienced great instruction when just a basic member of the ChessMood family. I could never know that I was in for the learning experience of a lifetime! I made the single best chess move I could ever make when I clicked the verify payment of becoming a PRO Member! In only 3 short months I have been granted access of all ChessMood video lessons and all my questions get answers directly from Grandmasters! Since I have been a ChessMood basic member, plus my time as a PRO Member, my Correspondence rating has gone up 110 points. I have maintained my standard rating playing opponents who are 300 Elo points over me! If I was playing my rating or lower I believe my Elo would go up more. I have only been a PRO Member for 3 months! At the time of this testimonial, it’s been 3 months! I can’t wait to see where I will be in 1 year or better yet, 2 years of ChessMood training.I’m letting you know I have made my best chess move when I joined the PRO Team of ChessMood and have had the experience of a lifetime.
Thanks, ChessMood Team!"

“Joining the ChessMood community has helped my play immensely. I started taking tournament play seriously around the time I joined, and it took many games to realize that the right moves only come when you’re in the Right Mood! It’s really a trick to have your complete skill show OTB and every week I’ve learned new skills from the group to do exactly that. GM Grigoryan has been very helpful, and I’ve learned a lot from his game analysis. He has a very strong feeling for the attacking possibilities in a position and has been helping many chess players blast past their personal plateau's.”

Arrik Leman, United States Testimonials

Hrair Brounsouzian, Lebanon Testimonials

"GM Avetik had coached the Thailand National Team in 2017, and I was lucky enough to be part of the training. GM Avetik taught us so many things, not just in chess, but I have also learned some lessons for life. Concentration, dedication, and resilience 'don't resign' were my favorites. When I came across ChessMood in 2018, I was really excited that I would get a chance to have lessons from GM Avetik again, also from other strong GMs. I am very happy and grateful to have this opportunity and be part of the ChessMood family."
