Developed and hand-picked by Brazilian GM Gilberto Milos, Chessimo TRAIN is based on the periodic repetition of exercises which mirror real in-game situations. Lessons are searchable by topics (tactics, strategies, endgame, openings) and skill level so that you will easily find the exact right lesson for you. You want to expand your abilities or specifically practice openings or endgame strategies and tactics? Or maybe you're new to this board game and want to learn how to play first? Chessimo TRAIN paves the way for you. The app let's you start at your current level and progress at your own pace.

• CHECK: Play against the computer and quantify your skill level by finding out about your own personal ELO rating. By dynamically adapting to your capabilities, our computer makes for a perfect sparring partner. Playing against Stockfish (one of the most powerful chess engines out there) will help you transform small improvements into victory. You want to gear-up for competitive games against human opponents? Practicing with Chessimo CHECK really will make your game perfect.
