CB Light 2009: Know everything

by ChessBase
8/18/2009 – Watching games on the Fritz Server – a high-class tournament or a blitz match between top players – is great fun. As a kibitzer, you feel the tension of such encounters, and even if you are "only" a hobby or club player, you enjoy the pleasant feeling that you have learned something. But there is much more, especially when you upgrade to ChessBase Light 2009 Premium (Euro 49.99). Take a look.
