@Mschweinsberg Thanks for the link to chesstree.net. I like it.

I couldn't agree more Ray. It's maddening. There is no way to "See" the whole opening. Go http://www.chesstree.net/
I think the person who did that was just an independent guy programming it, and it's so much clearer than anything Chessbase has. That's where I got to build my repertoire. It's so visually and conceptually perfect. But no, the massive company will millions of dollars cannot do this.

I would like someday to see a clickable 'tree' of options in Chessbase Opening Encyclopedia, like was done in "Bookup" software. Right now there's no 'one-click' solution for doing this, but you have to play moves then take them back, without just clicking on a link. That's why I don't buy Chessbase opening software.
