12/10/2020 – This year we are launching our "Christmas Fritztrainer Calendar". For the next 24 days, you can open one of our Fritztrainer doors daily, and guess: Which Fritztrainer is this? If you send us the correct answer by email, you are participating in a raffle to win plenty of prizes, including our big Christmas surprise packages!

The White Sniper The White Sniper

The White Sniper is characterised by three moves against any black setup: 1.g3 2.Bg2 and 3.c4 though not necessarily in that order. Think of The White Sniper as a Hyper- Accelerated Sicilian Dragon against anything that Black plays.

Door 10

We let you open 24 Calendar doors, where you simply have to guess the image of the Fritztrainer. Some pictures are easier to guess, others require a bit more research.

If you guess correct, you can win any of the listed items, randomly raffled:

  • ChessBase t-shirt
  • ChessBase Mask
  • USB-Stick
  • DVD's signed by Grandmasters
  • Fritztrainer

And automatically take part in a Christmas surprise Package raffle, with other valuable prizes.

Here we go:

Who is this Fritztrainer?

We only need to know the name of the chess personality (personalities)

If you know the answer (Full Name), or you want to take a wild guess (What can go wrong?) - simply write an email to:

feedback-raffle@chessbase.com

Subject: Fritztrainer Christmas Calendar

And write the answer like this - e.g.: Fabiano Caruana

Please also add your own full name, and in which country you currently live in the email.

Kindly understand, that you can only give an answer until the second next day 12:00 CET.

All winners will be informed on the 27th of December by email, and on the ChessBase news site.

The more Fritztrainer's you can guess correctly every day, the higher the chances are to win bigger prizes in the end.
