Fritz is one of the flagship products of ChessBase and is released every two years. After people enjoying Fritz 17 to a great extent, there was a lot of pressure on the programmers of ChessBase to come up with some new and exciting. They managed to do that with Fritz 18. The product has many new features which can be read in detail over here. The one feature which is very exciting for players of all levels is the Brilliancy Training. Fritz 18 has a very close to human like feel of play where it makes errors in ways that it forces you to find brilliant moves and ideas. This is unlike what you will see from modern day engines. Either they play too strong, or if you reduce their level, they will blunder pieces, which no human opponent would in tournament play.

Correspondence Database 2022
For many years games of Correspondence chess were not paid much attention to. That's because these games are played over a period of many days with both players being able to think with powerful engines on their side. While competitively correspondence chess might not be so exciting, in terms of quality of games, you cannot get anything better than this! Correspondence games have the perfect blend of human thought and powerful engine checked ideas. This is the reason why many strong players have started to use the Correspondence Database for their preparations and rightly so! Now the 2022 database is updated with 2 million games and 20 video analysis done by top players! You might think that the database is expensive, but if you manage to win a crucial game using one of the ideas in the database, it will be well worth the investment!

When we launched ChessBase India t-shirts, we wanted to ensure good quality material which everyone would enjoy wearing. It's been nearly 3.5 years since we have been selling t-shirts and we have had no complaints with regards to the quality of the cloth used or the print on the t-shirt. What everyone wanted was for us to expand our repertoire and introduce new designs in the shop. That's the reason why Amruta and her team of designers have worked on various designs and we managed to bring out some exciting t-shirts design for this Diwali sale.
You are your own challenge is another design that has been launched

We launched Vedika's chocolates on ChessBase India a few months ago and the response has been wonderful. People have loved the chocolates and we have tried to improve our logistical services.
