Anyone who knows how to play chess has almost certainly heard of Fritz. In its early years Fritz was small enough to install on your PC from a ""floppy disk" (something today’s youngest players have probably never even heard of!). In 1995, Fritz won the Computer Chess World Championship, and soon made its way around the world on CD ROMs. The latest version, Fritz 15, is among the strongest multi-core engines in the world. But until now you always needed Windows to play it.


Fritz is the world’s first chess program to run in a browser, so no installation required! Fancy a game against our silicon monster? Just open your web browser – one click is all it takes to set the board up and you can start playing or analyzing right away.

Fritz Online 2D Board


Chess is meant to be fun – and that’s why the Fritz Web App has several different playing modes. On the "Amateur" level, you can beat him comfortably. On level "Club Player", you get realistic games where Fritz will actively allow tactic combinations. Switch him to "Master" and it will become tough. Fritz will know every opening variation ever played in master games. But you still have your chances: The innovative "Assisted Play" function will give you subtle hints and protect you from simple blunders.

Fritz has a fantastic training feature: "Assisted Calculation". During the game, you can calculate lines in any position by moving pieces "blindly" on the board. Fritz will assist you with several graphical hints to ensure that your variations are legal and tactically sound. You "only" have to do the visualization work. This boosts your calculation skills and also improves your chances against the chess program in the game.

Fritz plays his openings from the LiveBook. That means it always knows the most recent theory and all relevant games every played.
