If you carry with a chess and there is no WinBoard on your computer until now, it is a serious omission from your side! If, certainly, you do not have more powerful chess software like ChessBase or ChessAssistant.

Winboard is a graphic chess interface for Windows, intended mainly for work with the small chess programs ("engines" such as Crafty, SOS and many other). Winboard allows you to play with these programs, and also to arrange the duels of these programs between itself.

Another dignity: possibility of playing on chess servers, such as chessclub.com, freechess.org and great number other. In addition you can work with the formats of chess parties of PGN, GAM and positions of FEN.
