Chess Software by Skill Level

Below we have roughly categorized chess players by skill level, in order to help you find the right chess playing software for your needs. These categories are flexible and can be adjusted to your own chess playing strength. If you are not sure, than Fritz and Deep Fritz are the best all-around chess playing software programs.

Chess Novice:  A chess player completely new to the game, or someone who has been only a casual “neighborhood” player. A ten-year-old just learning to play chess as well as eighty-five year old Uncle Bob, who plays on occasion just for fun, would fit into this category.

Chess Beginner:  Someone who definitely knows the chess rules, but has played mainly for fun, perhaps a couple of rated tournaments or an "in-house" school event. The chess beginner knows it is a long road ahead to "get good". In USCF terms, this player might be rated Class D and below.

Chess Intermediate:  Here is a chess player serious enough to play regularly in chess events or at a chess club; someone who wins and loses about equally but who wants to learn more about the game of chess. This player is roughly rated 1400-1600.

Chess Advanced: This player is serious about chess, probably listed among the top players at the local chess club. Here dwell the 1800 chess players, along with Experts and Masters. By now you're quite serious about improving your chess skills, and generally know how to study on your own.
