    Bill Forster's Tarrasch Chess GUI

    The Tarrasch Chess GUI

    Bill Forster is a Kiwi with a FIDE Candidate's Master title, and an occasional contributor to ChessChat. His website says:

    Tarrasch is an extremely easy to use free chess program for Windows. Tarrasch comes with a free database and chess engines, (including Stockfish and the demo version of Houdini), so you get everything you need to enjoy computer chess with one simple download …

    Tarrasch is designed to to make it as easy as possible to perform some basic chess activities;

    • Play a game against a chess engine, with either color, from any position, with a time handicap if desired.
    • Setup an arbitrary position and get the engine to analyse that position. View and play through the analysis provided by the engine.
    • Create and edit .pgn files (standard chess documents). Enter variations easily (just make moves anywhere). Enter and edit comments easily (just click anywhere and start typing). Promote and demote variations and even comments (so comments can change to moves and vice-versa – great for picking text off a website).
    • Explore chess openings and navigate easily through large chess databases.
    • Search chess databases for positions, patterns and material balances.

    Bill wanted to commemorate Tarrasch, who as he says has an unjustified reputation as a dogmatist and general ‘bad guy’ of chess.

    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell
