Software analysis in plain language Hi,

Could you please give me a list a chess computer games for PC capable of explaining positions in plain language a la Fritz 8? Names of older good games and older Fritz versions are welcome since they might cost less :-)

TIA

vitalis, The latest versions of Chessmaster have a "Natural Language" feature feature that is somewhat similar to Fritz 8. If you're you're not familiar with it, I can have CM do such an analysis and e-mail it to you or post it here. I'm not familiar with any others. ws

Maybe yet to come I tried both Chessmaster and Fritz for the plain explanations.

However, I got disappointed soon. I see you're higher level than me (1400-1500 now), so I doubt you can find them any more useful than entertaining sometimes. They don't tell any insights or psycological traps. I donít expect to any PC program will suggest anything you can find in books, like how to exploit the advantage of Bishop against Knight.

Anyway, I gave up using the feature, so there might be someone with more positive experience.

to wschmidt It would be great if you could post the analysis of both CM and Fritz for the same position (an interesting one of your choice).

Thanks!
