It helps trainers to spot and understand the hidden possibilities of the positions.

Been playing around a little with DecodeChess, and it’s absolutely astounding. Their program explains the best engine moves in very understandable, human terms- not evaluation numbers. This could be a tremendously useful training tool for club players.

Having coached over 10,000 students myself, from beginners through national champions, DecodeChess is the tool that I dreamed of for many years to empower my students to make rapid progress.

In my research I used the new chess site decodechess.com. I am very grateful to their team for the invaluable support which made my analyzes much more fun and required less efforts by me.

DecodeChess is a nice tool to have when looking for additional explanations to your game when you cannot reach your coach.

Customers Talking about DecodeChess
I find that as a teacher DecodeChess is really valuable because it can deal with the specific situation whereas online videos are great for chess principles and opening theory but don’t help you see things that are relevant to the (often non-standard) way you play.
I enjoy the insights Decode Chess supplies, especially on the complex mid-game positions. Although I’m not a very strong player (yet) I appreciate the depth and explanations that Decode Chess provides. I highly recommend this app.
Reason for purchasing: Obvious value and usefulness of the product.
Reason I will renew: Excellent product and customer support.
GREAT product. I use it daily in studying and analyzing my games. Very helpful tool for learning and improving. Very intuitive and easy to use.
I have been playing the DecodeChess computer and using the Decode process to work through the various main lines. The running graph that is displayed is excellent as well. Whole setup is working really well and I am learning a lot, easily the best chess education around.”
I really needed something like this. I don’t have thousands of dollars to throw at a chess coach. It explains the moves and what is good or bad about it so you can learn at your own pace. Many thanks for making this.

I am really engaged, and like the way it describes everything in human language and is easy to understand. I fully studied the Danish Gambit, and use it as my main opening now.
Thanks again for making DecodeChess in the first place. It’s like those wonderful books I learned so much from where the reasons behind each move were explained, getting ideas pointed out to me like a chess coach does.

I love the range and depth of the analysis provided after a “decode.” This is the most helpful feedback I have ever found.
DecodeChess is a next-generation chess analysis tool that explains the reasoning and concepts behind the suggested moves of a chess engine (Stockfish), promoting chess understanding for players with an ELO rating of up to 2000.
