ChessBase is the chess database program that has become the standard worldwide. 35 years ago ChessBase invented the storage of chess games on the PC. Back then, people were amazed at 1,000 games on a floppy disk; today, databases with millions of chess games are handled by the program! Only with ChessBase can you, as a chess player, extract the essential information from these enormous collections of games.
Whether it is an individual opponent and tournament preparation, administration and analysis of one's own games, development of training material for self-study or for training groups, publication of games on the web or in print: ChessBase offers an incredible wealth of functions for all areas of study and playing levels.
