Chess Position Trainer – Study and Practice Chess Openings

The video shows how to
– review and import a repertoire in Chess Position Trainer 4.0
– train against an existing repertoire, from a specific position
– review statistics to see how well you know your repertoir
I use Slav exchange for Black to illustrate the tool’s main capabilities. More about on my blog:


  1. This is more like watching a guy play with it than a learning video that actually explains how to use this thing. Wasted time. How about a walkthrough of all the option and how to set up and program this thing from A to Z with no unnecessary chatter and game play? That would be much more helpful.

  2. cool!

    I was wondering, if you don't already have a repretoire does it give you suggestions? I only know most of my openings about 6 moves deep and then I just wing it.

  3. Chess Analysis and Improvement from Chessvideoguy says:

    It does not really give you any suggestions, although I am pretty sure in the full version you can turn on a computer engine and get ideas that way. You can also download other people's repertoires, even though I had not tried that…

  4. A couple of questions.

    Does the software update somehow to keep current with modern theory?

    Is there any real advantage or difference between the free version and the version available for purchase?

    Thanks a bunch, and thanks for the great video and information.

  5. Can DGT board used with this software application??
