Originally posted by JiePgn is OK, but I still prefer paper scoresheets. They are faster and easier to access than starting up my computer.
If I have all my games finished in a pgn what is the use of a chessbase light database of the games? Or what do people do with their finished games?
Originally posted by Fat LadyChessBase and Fritz cost big money, they release a new version almost yearly but is it worth the money? If you are coaching then the features might be worthwhile but I don't see a need in my case.
I use ChessBase (version 9) so I don't know how the functionality differs. I mainly use it for printing out games with diagrams at critical points to help me with my coaching. If I am just coaching one or two children I can also play through the games on the computer itself.
Originally posted by JieI would also like to get some training but I prefer it in real life(even this is difficult to get where I am) because makes me to be more commited to the training if it is OTB...
Do any of you use chess coaches? Do they look through your games or do you play the coach as he instructs you? I've been thinking of getting a coach as some coaches on ICC advertise. Is this worthwhile?
Originally posted by JieDo you not know how to Google and do product research, or are you just lazy and hope that we'll spoon feed you?
Has anyone used all three? What is the major difference?
- chessbase 9
- chessbase 10
Originally posted by JieWell, Chessbase's marketing strategy is clearly to get you hooked on cblight and then get you to take the plunge into the full versions. Anyway, I hope the Zarkon Fischer link was helpful to you. (Instead of cblight, you might want to consider looking at the Zarkon Fischer info on SCID or CA Light.)
I was a bit lazy but its ChessBase's fault for not calling cblight something like ChessBase 9 light or something generic.
