Re: Chess engine for analysis & which for play?

For analysis I use Fritz 11 that comes with the Chessbase program. When I'm trying out opening lines or practicing endgames, I use this other programme I have, Chess Partner. It comes with the Rebel 12 engine, I use it because the programme moves the pieces. I find it less tedious than playing again...

Re: Why is chess compared to tennis?

Chess is like rugby because a promoted pawn is like a player that scores a try.
