Fritz 17 and Fritz Powerbook 2020

Even more power for Fritz! But for you too: in your Fritz program the Powerbook 2020 shows you the current state of opening theory with a comprehensive variation tree. The completely statistical evaluation for each position is immediately available. If you, for example, want to know what the the main line in a certain position is, you can simply consult the Powerbook. Or you search for attractive sidelines and broaden your opening repertoire!

At the turn of the century, Fritz fascinated the chess world with victories over Garry Kasparov and then-reigning World Champion Vladimir Kramnik. The "most popular chess program" (according to German magazine Der Spiegel) offers you everything you will need as a dedicated chess enthusiast, with innovative training methods for amateurs and professionals alike, plus access to the full suite of ChessBase web apps, including the Playchess playing server.
