I really like the "Review" feature in Chess com, where there is a "virtual coach" explaining why a particular move is better than the other. But it requires a paid membership for more than one review per day. I don't see something similar when I try to analyze the game using Stockfish alone. Could someone suggest how I could download any free/open source program that does the same?

After completing a game you can select options and choose 'self analysis' which is free and unlimited. It uses stockfish to give you a similar analysis without the words.

  • Thanks for the response, but I am having difficulty as to why stockfish recommends a particular move when I see it on Lichess or any site. The "virtual coach" makes it much easier for me to understand why it was a good/bad/blunder move. I was looking for some tool which I could download that could give me unlimited "virtual coach" advise Jun 17, 2023 at 19:51

Lichess has a free game review feature that employs Stockfish.

  1. After a game, you can analyze the game and learn from your mistakes.
  2. You can store games in the Study feature and request a computer analysis.
  3. You can import a game and request a computer analysis. For example, you can see the computer analysis for the famous Ivanchuk-Kasparov (Linares, 1991) game with evaluations on each move, annotations (e.g., inaccuracies, mistakes, and blunders), and accuracy scores.

Granted, this doesn't have the same "coach" interface as Chess.com, but it is free.

DecodeChess claims to "explain the why behind chess moves" but I am not familiar with its functionality in detail. Since there is a pricing page, I imagine the free version is limited.

  • @user3760100 I get that but I'm not sure what you want currently exists as specified. I could only answer with what I know exists. Good luck! Jun 17, 2023 at 19:56
