Fritz for Fun 13 (PC-DVD)
Chess is great fun whatever your playing strength - provided you have the right opponent - like Fritz for example! Whether against Garry Kasparov in New York or Vladimir Kramnik in Bonn: millions of chess fans followed the 'Man vs. Machine' matches with the world's most successful chess program.
Don't worry though - Fritz isn't just a checkmating machine. The program automatically adjusts its play to suit any rating, while the built-in chess coach function explains moves and positions, gives tips, points out hidden dangers and also provides detailed opening statistics. Or why not play against the training engine, a sparring partner that you can actually beat, again and again, until you have perfected your technique!
No more nightmares - wipe a feared opponent off the board, deliver checkmate and extend your hand with a smile! Fritz shows you how it's done with first-class video trainers and 1000 checkmate exercises, on top of an eBook (epub, Kindle) containing over 100 additional training positions! Feared opponents are a thing of the past!
There is more online: Fritz gives you access to the largest chess club in the world: Playchess.com!
