4/1/2009 – After dropping its efforts to make chess an Olympic discipline FIDE has now abandoned its "doping tests", so that players will no longer be hounded by medical officials after their games. The decision allows our company to release a new line of Training Enhancement products which until now it had to hold back due to the IOC restrictions. Order now or first read more about our new products.

As you probably know, FIDE has announced that it was abandoning its efforts to make chess an Olympic discipline – after IOC President Jacques Rogge issued a statement saying: “It is played where? In dark unventilated rooms by people sitting motionless in chairs for hours, staring at a board and swigging alcohol? You gotta be kidding, right?” At the same time FIDE agreed that as a consequence of this decision it will in future be unnecessary to "hound players with 'doping tests', which have in the past threatened the careers of some of the world’s top players.”

ChessBase has warmly greeted this decision by FIDE, calling it “a correct and positive step in the right direction, one that relieves our royal game of the fetters of unnecessary administrative regulation. Players are now free to develop their full potential, using all available training methods and learning techniques that modern science has placed at our disposal.”

At the same time our marketing and products department has announced a new range of chess training supplements that can be ordered immediately or pre-ordered in cases where import regulation have caused a few unfortunate delays.

Kramnik Formula users gain deeper positional and endgame understanding as well as a deeper voice and, in many cases, a few inches of height.

The Young Kasparov Formula (produced from samples taken in 1981!) will push you towards the top of the Elo list, which more than makes up for the bushy black hair that has been reported as a side effect (or as some test candidates called it: “bonus features”!).
