24 ( +1 | -1 ) fritz and other data basesI'm currently 1620 rated and have improved over 440 points in the last 8 mons. ? will Fritz be of any use to me and how would you suggest I use the software. Also is there any good software out there that imployes tactics as a learning tool?
53 ( +1 | -1 ) There are many programs available to help you. What do YOU want. You have to look around, www.google.com is a good place to start. Fritz is a very strong playing program to play training games against - you can adjust the levels to suit your own level. Its very moderatly priced for a strong playing partner that can point out your mistakes and analyse your games for you. With Fritz you can also practice your favourites openings by setting up the position, Fritz wont complain.
27 ( +1 | -1 ) I think the most useful thing Fritz offers with respect to improvement is the game analysis mode, in which Fritz goes over a game and comments on all the moves he doesn't like - basically it's going to spot all the tactical things you overlooked.
