Chess Hero
A free chess training program
Latest version: 2.1 (Mar 27 2010)

How does it work?
1.You supply a set of PGN files
2.The program picks random positions from the PGN files and challenges you to guess the best move computed by a chess engine
3.On every attempt you are given a penalty (the difference in score between your move and the engine best)
The program can be configured to work with multiple chess engines, and supports both the XBoard and UCI engine protocols

Above is a picture of the program main window. At the bottom right you can see my three attempts at the best move:

•My first move was Qe4+, resulting in a penalty of 1.77 pawns. You can configure the program to accept moves below an arbitrary penalty threshold (by default it is set to 0.25 pawns). Qe4+ was also the move played in the game.
•Next I played Qe7, but that was another 1.37 penalty.
•At last, I got it right with Bxb4.
You can greatly customize the program by simply feeding it different kinds of PGN files, such as:

•Master games that match the openings you play
•Your own games
•Tactical positions from well-known collections
•Games of your chess hero

The program requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Runtime. If you don't have it already installed on your computer, you can get it here

Thank you! Official website file isn't corrupt. Avast thinks it's a virus for some reason and deletes it.. and since I had it on silent mode I didn't noticed Avast was doing that. So just add it to your exclusions list in case anyone is having the same issue!  biggrin
