Chess Openings Encyclopedia 2010 - Includes Theoretical Material on Every Opening - by The Chess Assistant team
Publisher: Convekta, 2010
This excellent program for learning chess openings includes theoretical material on every opening, a user-friendly and detailed classification of variations, a quick search option and an option for analyzing games and positions.
The theoretical material is presented in a familiar form of the encyclopedic table and allows you to replay the opening lines on the chessboard.
There are two ways of studying an opening: by looking through encyclopaedic tables for chosen openings or variations and by moving along a Chess Tree displaying expert evaluations of a current position.
The material on openings is based upon about 500,000 of expert evaluations, 8000 annotations to key moves by Grandmaster Kalinin, about 40 million of evaluations obtained in the course of analysis of key positions by the Rybka program, and a base of 4.2 million games as of April 1, 2010.
A Rybka 2.3 program is integrated into the Chess Openings Encyclopedia with a possibility of simple connection to Rybka 3 and 4 or other UCI and Winboard engines. A powerful system of search according to player’ name, position, positional element, motif and material correlation is supported.
A test of opening mode will allow you to test your knowledge and your skill of playing in your chosen opening against the program and to obtain recommendations automatically.
