Question by Tibbs: What is the best free Chess Training software?
I’ve seen some very expensive Chess training software. What is the best option for a free software trainer?

Answer by Bill
Hello;

Free software for chess training is pretty rare. I think that it is important to have a good pgn viewer … I like Winboard in MS Windows and I use eboard on my Linux systems. Winboard is also GUI for playing chess. The newest versions have analysis options.

Beyond that there is Nagasaki, an excellent free chess program.

http://www.mayothi.com/nagaskaki.html

Interestingly, there is a vast amount of chess help programs on the internet. One of the best is:

http://www.chessvideos.tv/

Is an excellent chess resource. It is a website where chess videos are made many of them are of high quality and the training tips are fantastic.

Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) has chess lectures that can be very informative.

http://www.freechess.org

One of my very favourite chess websites is:

http://www.chessgames.com

It is an on-lline chess community where chess is discussed — the daily puzzles are enchanting.

There are more, but that should get you started …

I have been using tutorial based chess software for several years and havent really improved. Since I do an absurd amount of traveling in my work, attending Chess instruction is a little tricky .
I mainly use notebook computer and one of those electonic chess machines
good for travel. Anyone have any ideas or study tips I might to try?

Question by antoine: what is the best chess software to learn ?

Thank you very much for professional advise

Answer by MaX
Check ‘Learn to Play Chess with Fritz and Chesster’
http://www.amazon.com/Learn-Play-Chess-Fritz-Chesster/dp/B0000950SM/ref=sr_1_1?s=software&tag=basebal-20&ie=UTF8&qid=1354284291&sr=1-1&keywords=learn+kid+chess
The software teaches chess’s basics concepts to actually playing competitive game. Awarding of trophies in the game is a great plus. If you want your child to do chess, I would definitely recommend it.

If you know chess and use Windows 7, then there’s program provided by Microsoft called ‘Chess Titans’. It can accessed from Start menu Games ‘Chess Titans’.
