Hi there

I'm looking at investing in a chess engine to help improve my game.

I came across a review site and am torn between Fritz 12 and Rybka 4

The site is Computer Chess Review and in particular the URL's for the reviews are Rybka 4 and Fritz 12

Anyone used these programs before and can you recommend one over the other?

Thanks

Hi,

Both are great programs. Fritz 12:

Is more general and you receive a year at playchess.com. They both have similar analytical abilities. Rybka 4 is a much stronger engine:

But most people do not need the power. It really oils down to a matter of preference for an individual. But no matter which you select, you will be pleased with outcome. They are both great chesss software programs.
