Fauzi 6.0.abk & Fauzi 0.1.ctg Released

Post by fauzi » Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:34 pm

Hello dears,

First of all I would like to thank you for your help and your support, beside my love for chess and computer chess, the main reason to keep my motivation high is in fact your support.
Also I have been so glad to have been contacted by several Super GMs which purchased my book and was satisfied with it providing me precious remarks and feedbacks, and all these positive things which started from your direct support finally drove me to take a path which I was considering since long time, and it is to start working on CTG opening books (for chessbase/fritz GUI) obviously without leaving my beloved ABK opening books.
Now its been around 4 monthes since I started this new journey and I have learned a lot about CTG books.

Now that I have a broader view on the matter, and I can compare between the different formats, I can say that each one of these 2 formats has various advantages and various disadvantages, and the real chess enthusiast such as the chess correspondence players, must learn how and when to use each different opening book, similar as the expert correspondence players interchange between the different engines during the different game phases of a single match (Stockfish, Komodo, Houdini)

I really hope that both Arena (Abk) and Chessbase (Ctg) can improve their opening book features in the near future, since they both shine in some features and lack in some other, its really sad for me that both of them didn't updated their opening book features in a very very very long time.

The first version of my ctg book is "Fauzi 0.1.ctg" and it comes out after a period of 4 months of daily hard work, I still didn't make intense testing work on this version, since I have been busy shaping it, tuning and tweaking all the main lines, hopefully in the next period I will focus more on testing to improve it more and more.
The work I did in the last couple of monthes on the ctg book has not prevented me from working also on my akb book, on the contrary the work on my ctg book has helped me alot in improving also my abk book, I think that Fauzi.abk and Fauzi.ctg are together a complimentary work, each one takes strength and learn from the other.

So I'm happy to release the "Fauzi 0.1.ctg" version for Fritz and Chessbase, together with the "Fauzi 6.0.abk" version for Arena on the same date, I choose to jump from the 5.2 to the 6.0 version since the abk book has changed and improved so much with the help of my ctg book.
For whoever as me are a chess lover which do not have problems in using more than one chess GUI, I have created also a special bundle product to be able to buy both the books together at a better price than buying each one separately.
However please note that the style and the lines played by the two books are completely different since they was created in different methods.

I would like again to thank you all, with the hope that you will be satisfied with the product that I'm offering.
As always I'm open to any remarks or feedback.
