If you’re looking to learn a chess opening – fast – then you came to the right place.
Hi, I’m Mike Leahy and I’ve been making apps for chess players, specifically for chess openings, for humans and for computers since 1983. (That goes back way before Windows but that’s another story.)
Here’s what you’re going to get when you sign up at this site. We have software tools here for Windows to help you learn chess openings wicked fast.
But the first thing I have to ask you is…
How strong are you?
Because if you are just learning how to play chess then this program is not for you.
But if the thing that’s important to you is learning an opening for White or a defense as Black then you definitely have come to the right place.
Choose from three levels of software tools.
The first one is free. It displays all ebooks in COW format and it comes with demo ebook systems that describe all the openings by name and ECO code.
The next level is called Express. We call it Chess Openings Wizard Express. With that paid version you get the ability to edit your own opening and do analysis with a computer.
To get the free version, sign up for a 30 day trial of the Express version. (After the 30 day trial is over, it becomes the free version.)
It will work indefinitely – and if you’re just trying to learn the names of the chess openings then the free version is for you.
To get started fill in the form on the right.
All you need to do is fill in your name, email address, a “Username” and a password. You might be wondering why we’re asking you for a username and a password.
So sign up now and I’ll see you on the inside.
Lots of players are still using trees of game lines to prepare. Join the elite who use this positional database to drastically cut down on the time and effort needed to become incredibly prepared in the chess openings.
You can’t get this powerful feature from programs costing hundreds of dollars – but Chess Openings Wizard Express will do it for you.
