PRE-ORDER - Fritz 18 + CHESSBASE 16 2022 STARTER Bundle
Includes both Fritz 18 and ChessBase 16!
The new Fritz18 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.
ChessBase 16 is even better now – a lot of functions are easier to use but most important: there are fantastic new possibilities to help you analyse and search for relevant games.

The new mode " Evolving Genius " is an outstanding innovation! You learn to play an attacking game interactively. You play against Fritz set as a strong club player (or adjustable in levels: amateur to grandmaster), who makes no obvious mistakes, but whom you will masterfully outplay. This is possible thanks to AI-supported game management. The old handicap levels are not comparable to this, because they only led to gross mistakes that were easy to see. Here, however, you learn to attack, to play actively, which you would not dare to do in a normal game against a human opponent. With Fritz18 you can train exactly that! And as a result you play real brilliant games! In addition to the "guided" attacking game, we visualise the engine calculations: how well are your pieces positioned? King security? Activity? Sharpness of the position? etc. The "game value" of Fritz18 is massively better! The new Fritz18 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.
