    It's basically an improved version over 10. The engine now multi-threaded for those with dual or quad core cpu's. The graphics are nicer, and there are some more tutorials added.

    the graphics aren't nicer they're actually the same.. In fact WORSE, as the AA seems disabled somehow and there's no option to turn it on.. so now you have the same thing with jaggies. There's more 3D and 2D boards though.

    There's a whole new tutorial section with Josh Waitzkin that I found really helpful and informative.

    The game also auto updates/patches upon every start.

    The natural-language type advice handed out by the Chessmaster seems to be exactly the same though.

    Is Josh Waitzkin a GM yet?

    no and he never will be.

    He'd rather be dancing around like a fairy doing martial arts...

    I'd like to see this waitzkin "expert" martial artist against some UFC fighters..

    it's been proven time and again. UFC and PRIDE fighters destroy martial arts guys every fight.

    The sight of waitzkin makes me vomit.

    waitzkin is preaching this "harmonious whole" crap.....

    what that loser doesn't understand is this.....we want chess.

    we don't want gay ass martial arts(i'm a boxer and powerlifter and i always make fun of martial arts guys and none have said anything back.)

    we don't want harmony and peace and to be "one" with the universe crap.

    all i can say is that movie about him was a waste.....it should have been done on a kid who might actually win the championship.

    Well, I certainly can't accuse you of holding back on your opinions, lol. I'm not really a fan of Waitzkin, but he doesn't make me want to vomit, either.

    waitzkin could squash you at chess and kick your butt like you were a small child, most likely he's a lot more polite and far less presumptuous than you. Maybe the sight of you would make him want to vomit.

    Just reading your thoughts makes me want to vomit. I can only imagine the reaction seeing you might provoke.
