"I have been recommending Chess Position Trainer to students for several years now as part of a multi-pronged approach to learning openings. It is of important to understand the ideas and general strategy, but beyond that a player needs to know and remember their repertoire choices. This is where Chess Position Trainer comes in, you can put your repertoire into the program and then drill the various lines until you know them off by heart. This is especially valuable in these days of computer assisted opening preparation and deep theory, in which the requirement to know your lines thoroughly has increased."
GM Nigel Davies

Next steps suggestions:

  • Run the installer. The program comes with an example database which contains the closed sicilian. Use it to get a feeling for the program (e.g. using the training module).
  • Download the manual. It features a short walk-through, which will give you a good overview about the key concepts of the program.
  • Watch Chess Position Trainer Video Tutorials on YouTube (highly recommended for getting started!).
  • If you have any questions, feature request or you would like to report an issue, please check the support page or use the online-ticket system.
  • Finally, create your own repertoire! If you want to import an existing repertoire (or you bought an eBook from a chess publisher) convert it into PGN. Then create a new database with Chess Position Trainer and add an opening into which you want to import your PGN file. Utilize the specific features of Chess Position Trainer like creating folders, openings and variations. Start training your openings!
