Fritz 18 + CHESSBASE 17 STARTER Bundle

The new Fritz 18 engine has become about 30-40 Elo points stronger, but that is of no practical relevance. The current engines are only tested against other engines. For normal analysis, all engines find the best move within a few milliseconds in 99.99% of positions. That is why we have based our analysis on practical utility: Fritz simulates a strong club player and LEADS you with subtle hints to a strong attack you can be proud of. You have never trained with so much fun.
