It helps.

My last competition I shared a small cash prize, so I've advanced from nothing to show for all my time and expense all the way to next to nothing to show for all my time and expense. Smile

I'm definitely happy to trade dollars for time.

Time is irreplaceable, money is not.

So COW is the way to go then?

I can't say for CPT since I never used it.

I've used COW for a couple of months now and it has done everything I need as discussed here. It has other capabilities for internet chess players that look pretty neat as well.

Like all chess software there's a learning curve, but I haven't come across any fatal bugs. I'd say after a chess database program, this would be the next "essential" type of software for the OTB player.

There's some videos here: http://www.bookup.com/videos/

Cool, thanks for the videos link... looks like something else I'll need some free time for!

Thanks people, CPT is really a good one to enhance the opening skill. Thanks for sharing with us, and keep posting and help us if you'll come across more such good things.

Together we can work and make ourselves better and better. Thanks to all again, for sharing it.

I curently do a fair amount of work to convert and host files so if there's an easier way I like to know. For example, here's what I see with chess opening wizard after I've imported the files.....

I don't see any image with your post.

I've been converting all of the chessbase opening files into COW.

It requires saving the chessbase files as pgn before importing the games into a COW file. All of the comments are ported with the moves. After the conversion I clean up the commentary to look good although that is not really essential. The only other thing that is not obvious after conversion is to use the "recalculate uncandidates" command in COW to identify transpositions.

I think that blitz will undermine the memorization work until I've completed the learning.
