Using the Opening CDs, Part B
keywords: Transpositions, Tree, Opening, Study

In part A of this article, I looked at some search techniques that could be used to facilitate opening study with Convekta's opening CDs. Now I'm going to take a look at how available theory is accessed and displayed within the program.

I have to apologize for the length of time between part A and B of this set. My work and home life have taken time and energy away from chess (imagine that!).

It can sometimes be difficult to understand why particular opening moves are played. This article examines some useful techniques that you can use to find plans, or motivations for particular moves. Several examples from Convekta's King's Indian Defense opening CD are used to illustrate these techniques.

Chess Assistant users may also get something out of this article, so give it a read.
