GM Nicholas Pert about his DVD: “After the success of my previous DVD Typical mistakes by 1600-1900 players I decided to produce a follow up DVD aimed at players of a slightly higher level. The examples all come from games played by players with a rating between 1800 and 2100. This DVD offers slightly more complex material than the previous DVD, and will hopefully provide an insight into what I believe are the main errors which stop players of this level to be more successful. I divided the material into categories such as “when to exchange pieces”, “how to convert an advantage”, “passive pieces”, “anticipating your opponents plan”, “openings and pawn structure”. Each section contains several examples which illustrate the theme and practical examples which allow the viewer to test his skills. This DVD provides a useful training tool for ambitious players and may highlight mistakes that the viewer should be aware of.”
GM Garry Kasparow (World Champion 1985-2000): "ChessBase is the greatest development for chess since the invention of the printing press."
GM Dorian Rogozenko: "ChessBase is an absolute must-have tool, whether you want to get to the top, or just improve your chess understanding at any level."
GM Fabien Libiszewski: "J'utilise ChessBase depuis plus de 20 ans. C'est devenu au fil du temps un outil indispensable pour travailler les échecs, se tenir au courant des dernières parties et pour se bâtir un répertoire."
GM Vishy Anand (World Champion 2007 – 2013): "ChessBase 15 - awesome! Love the reference and the replay so far. The search booster alone makes life better!"
GM Rustam Kasimdzhanov: "Nowadays I don’t know a single chess player, amateur or 2800, that does not use ChessBase, and for good reason."
GM Teimour Radjabov: "I have been using CBM for a long time and it is very useful, because you can see all the recent games, annotated by the best players in the world."
GM Daniel King: "ChessBase is essential for instant access to past games, allowing one to prepare new ideas for the future."
GM Le Quang Liem: "ChessBase is amazing, great software for chess players. It has changed the way chess players prepare and study chess – a very good thing for us."
GM Maxime Vachier Lagrave: "I grew up when ChessBase was almost the only web site for chess, and it helped me to follow tournaments, when I was a kid. Of course I still use the software."
GM Adrian Mikhalchishin: "I like CBM in different ways - as a reader, I prefer the Endgame Corner by Karsten Mueller - really well done. As a trainer, I use CBM Tactics to warm up my pupils, sometimes Opening Surveys, which are useful for certain openings and sometimes Strategy, the subjects of which are always instructive."
Anish Giri: „ChessBase is the software you really need. It is definitely essential and useful.“
