Alexandra Kosteniuk Recommends Chess Software to Improve at chess

Alexandra KosteniukHello everyone! Yes that’s me on the photo! It was taken when I was a kid (remember I started to play chess at 5 years old), and my dad had created a chess program (called “Alexandra”) so I could practice tactics and endgames. It was very rare at the time and it helped me progress a lot. Now there are lots of wonderful chess programs that can help you achieve your goals of becoming stronger at chess. You can see below the best programs by our Chess King Labs and by our partner Convekta, at the very best prices, in our DVD and download shop www.chesskingtraining.com. Make sure to use the coupon code 10dOFF to get $10 off any order >$50, and 5dOFF to get $5 off any order >$25. Download or view a partial price list here and see the most popular items below (Chess King and the items marked in yellow). I use both Chess King 4 Pro and Chess Assistant 14 Pro, as well as several other tactics trainers. Email me if questions. Or visit the shop directly for the biggest assortment and lots of extra discounted super combos.

Just out: New Versions of Chess King 4 with Houdini 4 and Houdini 4 Pro

Chess King 4 with Houdini 4 announcedHi everybody!


My new software version Chess King 4 and Chess 4 Pro is out! It’s now the best version of the software we’ve ever created and it includes the brand new Houdini 4 and Houdini 4 Pro engines.


The software is still as easy to use and more powerful than ever. The “normal” version is graded “deep” and can handle up to 6 processors, and you could build the ultimate chess system with the “Pro” version which supports up to 32 processors and 256 GB of hash. That’s the one I use because it’s the fastest and I have 8 processors.


On the www.chess-king.com site, you can buy the downloads today and preorder the DVD’s and get them before Christmas (they ship December 18). It’s possibly the best chess present you can make yourself or a loved one.

Chess Queen™ Kosteniuk comments on YouTube her aggressive chess variant against Soumya

Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk wins against Sumya in a very aggressive variationHello everyone!
I have commented on my YouTube channel my game from the 2012 Istanbul Chess Olympiads against Swaminathan Soumya from India.The game started as a quiet Caro-Kann, but I quickly moved it to an extremely aggressive variation that my trainer GM Alexander Riazantsev and I had prepared for a special occasion several months ago. My win allowed my team to win against India 3-1, and later on we won the Olympiads Gold medals, for the second time in a row. As of today my YouTube channel counts 998,600+ video views, so I will soon be celebrating my first million YouTube views. If you like my videos and would like me to record more of them, please click LIKE to this post and “Thumbs up” in YouTube. In this video I use the program Chess King (description, video, shop), and you can find an applet to replay the game generated by Chess King at this link.

Chess Queen Kosteniuk introduces Chess King software

Hello everyone!
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!
