    CM is great software,for class-level players they are a great investment.As far as which particular engine is best,they all have their partisans,but frankly,until you reach at least 2100,it doesn't matter which chess engine you choose to use,they all get the job done.

    Yeah thanks for the responses. Chessmaster 10 includes all of the previous softwares tutorials, and chessmaster 11 doesnt actually advance on this in any way. The 'art of learning' heading is actually a misnomer, because it only contains the exact same games and tutorials as number 10. A point i was trying to make earlier!

    Do the 10th and 11th edition have personalities that you can play in tournaments, as the Chessmaster 9000 did?

    I have CM9000 and CM10, but not CM11. CM10 has somewhat more personalities than CM9000, and they can also be used in tournaments. However, as far as I can tell, CM10 cannot run multiple tournament games automatically. You have to start each tournament game manually. (A big pain in the posterior.)

    I had cm9000 and liked it much better than the Grandmaster Edition.  The interface was much easier to use for me and I could get the custom made personalities to play in tournaments against the many default ones.  You can't do that with Grandmaster Edition.

    I forgot to mention that the Grandmaster Edition does not allow other chess engines to participate in tournaments against the different personalities.

    That's really odd. CM10 does allow custom personalities and other chess engines to participate in tournaments, although as I said, you still have to start each tournament game manually.

    I may have mispoken. It has been a while since I had a copy of Chessmaster 9000. you might be able to enter customized personalities but I do know you can't allow other chess engines to participate in tournaments
