Re: sfarmer29 - Chess King Opening Training Software [14:59]
I agree with you on the superiority of Chessbase, but I do see a plus in the Chess King program for beginners and family situations. I have done quite a lot of coaching over the years, mostly geared towards adults. But with the few kids I did coach, who ever brought them to the lesson, be it mom, dad or older sister, they almost all said it would be cool if there were a program that they could use for the whole family.
I don't know anything about Peshka but from some quick research I believe that you (and others) may be right, Chess King looks familiar. Early on, when Fritz and Chessbase came out, those were the programs I use. I use Chessbase for the bulk of my work, Fritz for overnight analysis and SCID I use mainly to develop opening tables, a la, ECO/MCO.
I vote in a similar manner to you, Thumbs up for the training software. While I find Chess King lacking at my level, I can see it's use in households and chess clubs.
Thanks for your input.
