description & information:
Fritz Chess Software, developed by ChessBase, has been the program that for many years now has fascinated the chess world. However, the latest edition of this software, Fritz 13, has everything that chess players could want: automatically adjusting playing strength, handicap and coaching functions, explanation of positions, colored danger warnings, openings statistics, automatic game analysis, trainings modules for openings, tactics, endgames, and a database of one million games.
The Truly Great Analysis and Chess Playing Program by ChessBase
Fritz continues to revolutionize the chess world. It has beaten a reigning World Champion in the battle of man vs machine, and it has worked with World Champions as a clever training partner (Garry Kasparov: “I regularly analyse with Fritz”) which will entertain you with fresh and humorous verbal comments.
“Let’s Check” is a world first, it is the innovation with which Fritz 13 will have the chess world holding its breath! It is with the help of this new function that Fritz 13 users world-wide will create a gigantic database of knowledge. No matter which position you happen to be analyzing, if you wish, Fritz 13 will send the evaluation of your engine totally automatically to the “Let’s Check” server. The best analyses will be included in the database of chess knowledge. And best of all - after a short time you will find for almost every position (and without having to spend time calculating) high level analysis produced by a strong chess program or even several analyses produced by various programs for you to compare.
And . . . in live broadcasts on playchess.com there will be several hundred computers following world class games simultaneously and feeding the “Let’s Check”* database with profound analysis. Make certain positions your own. No matter whether you are a beginner, a club player or a grandmaster, thanks to “Let’s Check” every chess player is able to contribute to the creation of this database of knowledge.
And what is particularly good fun: if you have your computer analyse a position which is not yet known, then in a flash you have made that position your own and the analysis is made available to the entire world of chess players linked to your name. Who has made the greatest number of positions his or her own? Well, if your analysis goes deeper you can actually gain more positions from other players and see your name enter the roll of honour for “Let’s Check”.
All opening theory is available to back you up. Even if you are not an openings expert, you can be right up there among the best of them with “Let’s Check”. Because Fritz 13 provides you all of opening theory in a statistical tree structure. The “Live Book” shows you for every position not only the complete statistics based on the weekly updated ChessBase Online Database (over 5 million games) but also how often any specific continuation has already been accessed in the “Let’s Check” database and just how much in fashion it is.
Other Innovations include improved database management with direct choice, improved user interface in Windows Office 2010 style, and the new strong Fritz 13 engine.
