As you know, Chess King with Houdini 2 , the new affordable professional chess software, has been out for about a week and we are shipping it worldwide. My husband and I and a great team of chess programmers have been working on it for the last 2 years and we are very proud of the result, it’s powerful enough for a GM and simple enough for a kid to use, and has exclusive features not found anywhere (the random mode to prove you can win an won game is unbelievably useful). And the price of $49 (with coupon code INTROKING50) makes it an amazing value, since it includes the strongest chess engine in the world Houdini 2 and the biggest GigaKing Chess Games Database. We are continuing the deals below until the end of the year since they proved so popular. Read about Chess King (launch, tutorial) and get yourself a copy!
Each person is different, so that’s why there are many different kinds of Chess King combos. For someone starting out, Chess King with some kind of dedicated Tactics and opening software is great. Grandmasters with powerful computers (multiple cores) can use the additional power of Chess King Pro to shave some seconds from the Houdini 2 engine. If you’re strong, you should train with Tactics 3 as many GM’s do before tournaments to get into shape, and Endgame training is a must to become a well-rounded chess player.
So what’s your combo?
