Fritz 18 + CHESSBASE 17 MEGA Bundle

Includes both Fritz 18and ChessBase 17! When is chess the most enjoyable? When you win! When Fritz entered his first tournaments some 25 years ago, humans still had a real chance of taking the engine down. Only a few years down the line, Fritz was already beating grandmasters left, right and center, but ever since his 4:2 victory over Kramnik in 2006, Fritz has been considered unbeatable. Who would want to play against him? In the case of Fritz 18, however, playing against an engine is now once again the very definition of fun! A host of features, including "Assisted Analysis", which gives you discreet visual hints as you move, and emoticons, which show Fritz's mood, are there to help you. ChessBase 17 is even better now – a lot of functions are easier to use but most important: there are fantastic new possibilities to help you analyze and search for relevant games.
