It is the program of choice for anyone who loves the game and wants to know more about it. Start your personal success story with ChessBase and enjoy the game even more.

Opening surveys with deeply nested variations make particular demands on the representation of the notation. For that reason ChessBase 16 possesses a new way of “folding” variations which can be opened or closed simply with a click of the mouse. Another novelty is the automatic recognition of games quoted. All the opening surveys of ChessBase 16 contain pointers to recent strong sample games.

The main features of ChessBase are:

  • Opening surveys for every move with a single click. With a choice of focus: Main Variations, Fashion, Side Lines, Attacking, Gambits, Endgame
  • Better overview when playing through deeply analysed games thanks to dynamic folding of the notation
  • Urgent news about recently played innovations with direct access to the database
  • Direct database access to tournaments being played live
  • Preparation for opponents with recognition of their weaknesses taking into account your own repertoire
