  • Learn from every game you play (including online blitz), because the key information is no longer more than one click away! Stop your laziness as the author of CPT finally did by using the “Run games against Repertoire” function.
  • Import any PGN-files to fill-up your repertoire quickly.
  • Chess engine support to analyze key positions.
  • Scalable: you have an opening with over 70,000 moves? Don’t worry, CPT won’t slow down!
  • Powerful functions like the min-max function to automatically calculate forced winning (or losing) lines based on leaf node evaluations.
