Learn the fine art of mating your opponents with the 1000X CHECKMATE training course as Chess Grandmaster Lubomir Ftacnik explains typical mating patterns , the systematic assimilation of delivering mate, and then methodically drills you in 1000 mating exercises across 15 main themes. These include themes such as back rank mate, smothered mate, the king in the centre or motifs involving the h-file. The systematic solving of exercises on specific themes may be a little easier but it will certainly help you when similar motifs crop up in your own games. Integrate this tutorial with FRITZ FOR FUN and prepare to deliver the ultimate mate! FRITZ FOR FUN 13 is an amazingly robust chess training program. In addition, detailed tutorials can be purchased to further enhance the chess experience. Once you’ve purchased Fritz for Fun 13, the various tutorials can be purchased and run within the FRITZ FOR FUN application. The tutorials will also run as standalone applications-without purchasing FRITZ FOR FUN 13. In this case, the included “Chessbase” engine will be used instead of the more robust “FRITZ FOR FUN” engine. You may also choose to purchase one of our “2-Packs” which include the FRITZ FOR FUN 13 application, plus one of the tutorials. Once you’ve purchased one of the 2-Packs, you’ll have a fully-functioning version of FRITZ FOR FUN 13, which can be used to run any additional tutorials you may wish to purchase.
