Thematic tournaments in Fritz

Mig Greengard writes a monthly column on getting the most from your ChessBase software. It includes tutorials and an essential Q&A section where you can send in your questions. Called "ChessBase Cafe" it appears at the ChessCafe.com website. The latest column always appears at this link: http://www.chesscafe.com/mig/mig.htm. This month Mig shows you how to use the tournament function to produce high-quality games in exactly the openings you want.

#5, September, 2003. Training by Becoming a Tournament Organizer with Fritz. Our project this month is getting personalized opening training material from Fritz using the Tournament function. It can be very helpful to have sample games between strong opponents to study the openings. The best way to get a feel for an opening is to go over complete games. Basically what we are going to do is have our mighty engines play a thematic tournament amongst themselves.
#4, August, 2003. Better than Books: ChessBase Training CDs. Most people buy chess books in a sincere attempt to improve the quality of their play. Instructional books make up the huge majority of books offered and purchased, but the problem is how inefficient they are for a majority of readers. ChessBase produces enhanced chess books in CD-ROM format. A sampling and how to use them.
#3, July, 2003. Quick Opening Preparation for Mortals. The study masters do before and during tournaments largely revolves around preparing for specific opponents. So let’s look at how mere mortals can use ChessBase to brush up on a few openings before a tournament or a game. Create custom opening books from databases in minutes using the book and repertoire functions.
#2, June, 2003. The Fritz Fairy Analyzes and Annotates While You Sleep. Chess isn't all that hard – when you have a slave to do all the tedious stuff for you. In his Chess Cafe column Mig Greengard tells you exactly how to give Fritz the job of analyzing your games, checking for blunders and writing annotations in plain English. He also answers email and answers your questions.
#1, May, 2003. Inside Output: Publishing with Fritz and Friends. In the first installment of ChessBase Cafe Mig tells us about automatic HTML and diagram output with ChessBase 8, with lots of useful links and tips. Put games online or in print, make diagrams that look just the way you want, and export ready-to-publish HTML and word processor documents.
