Without a shadow of a doubt Chessmaster is the best. Fritz is a fairly intelligent engine but I found if overly messy to look at. The teaching elements in Chessmaster are far superior in my humble opinion also.

fritz 11 can do anything chessmaster can do and a million things more. to describe it as a “fairly intelligent engine” is a wild understatement. i consider myself an intermediate player as well and i like fritz. but osu is probably right that chessmaster probably has a clearer format. shredder and hiarcs are also top engines, but fritz is very popular. runs fritz-compatible tutorials.
