INTRODUCTION

Your KASPAROV POCKET PLUS TRAINER is programmed to play chess along with you and teach you about this great game. Together with its companion book, Kasparov Trainer - Easy Steps to Winning Chess, this is the fun and easy way for you to learn to play chess. The computer itself is easy to use; it automatically registers your moves, has eight levels of play and is specially programmed for fast response.

Your Kasparov Trainer book is designed to teach you chess step-by-step, with games and positions you can play out on the computer. Eight special built-in studies each teach you an important piece of chess knowledge as you play through them with the book. Try alternative moves and see what happens!

In normal games, the computer monitors your moves and makes sure they are legal. It also helps you learn different openings and suggest moves when you ask for help. If you are a beginner, the computer can warn you when your pieces are in danger and let you take back mistakes. While it is thinking, it can even show you what move it’s considering and how to evaluate the position.

Your KASPAROV POCKET PLUS TRAINER lets you learn chess the easy way. The companion book and study positions encourage you to improve your game - enjoyably! As you learn to play, take on the challenge of higher levels of play. The step-by-step program allows you to monitor your progress as you learn.
