Introducing the ChessBase Opening Encyclopedia

Chess columnist and ChessBase software guru Steve Lopez describes the features and benefits of having a full-featured electronic opening library in your chess software arsenal – the ChessBase Opening Encyclopedia.

Chessplayers love to study the chess openings. The object of the opening is simply to reach a playable middlegame, but we’re always worrying about whether or not we played an opening “properly”. At chess’ top levels proper opening play can be a matter of figurative life or death; a misstep in the game’s opening can lead to disaster. At the club level the opening isn’t quite as crucial, but playing the opening well can provide a player with an early advantage.

This is why the ChessBase Opening Encyclopedia will be of vital interest to both amateurs and professionals. Updated annually, the ChessBase Opening Encyclopedia is a repository of current opening theory with the added attraction of being presented in the electronic (rather than paper) medium, making it fully searchable by users of the ChessBase database program and the Fritz “family” of playing programs (Fritz, Rybka, Hiarcs, Shredder).
