KASPAROV QUOTE: “Powerful program plus effective coaching and helpful analysis”.

Includes a chess training program plus book. At maximum strength beats 90% of all chess players.

Your KASPAROV CAVALIER is a unique chess partner and coach. It is programmed to play chess with you and to teach you more about this great game. It automatically registers your moves on its built-in sensor chessboard, has 17 levels of skill and is specially programmed for fast response. The coaching features make it ideal for beginners and casual players who wish to improve their game.

In normal games the computer will monitor your moves and make sure that they do not violate the rules of chess. It will help you to learn different openings and suggest moves for you when you need help. If you are a beginner the computer will warn you when your pieces are threatened and if you are about to commit a blunder. It will allow you to take back moves and correct mistakes. In any situation the computer will show you the move it considers best and tell you what it thinks of the position.

With your KASPAROV CAVALIER chess computer you can learn and practice the easy way. It encourages you to improve your chess so that you enjoy the game more. Soon you should be able to beat the computer on the lower levels and switch to a higher one for more challenging games. Once you begin to hold your own on these levels you will know that you are a proficient player and have nothing to fear from average human opponents.

As your interest in chess develops you will want to take a look at the eight built-in chess games and solve the study positions with the help of the computer. This novel feature gives you interesting insights into high-class chess and many additional hours of pleasure with your KASPAROV CAVALIER chess computer.
