Re: chess tiger on iphone

yes, the amateur definitely blunders a few times. I think this app is pretty close to perfect. i wonder what happens if you have training level on and you change to aggressive, very aggressive , and suicidal...I imagine you would see about a 50 elo drop for each variation on the main personality? It...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

I am curious Christophe. What did chess tiger see in this position that made it want to sacrifice. It did lead to some dangerous threats on the h file and some potential knockout shots featuring the rook and queen focusing on h1

Re: chess tiger on iphone

Wow, you've gone through a lot of trouble. It has payed off in the ease in which the player can find a level that perfectly suits him/her Thanks to the really cool function of being able to load your previous game, I was able to reload the game with the blunder. This is on iphone and chess tiger is ...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

I spoke too soon. Chess tiger just gave away a knight on the 1910 (grade A) training level, making a move that no grade a player would ever make. If you want a realistic game from a chess game, then i think some processing resources need to be devoted to playing humans (resources that do not increas...

Re: Rybka Rental program is a nonsense.

That is an intersting idea for the cluster use, but it would seem to apply to only a small consumer base. As an 1900 player, I won't benefit from having the extra power, even if my opponent has just won in my pet line. I suspect nobody under 2400 would benefit with the cluster...They just need to go...

Re: chess tiger on iphone

One thing i've disliked about previous programs that try to play weak is that they are so variable in their strength. so an engine set to play a 1700 level will play like an absolute moron and then like a grand master...totally unrealistic stuff. I just played the 1750 level of chess tiger, and had ...

chess tiger on iphone

the last thread related to chess tiger seemed to get hijacked by clone talk so i'd thought i'd start a new one about chess tiger. I think this is a beautiful program . Everything works simply, the interface is clear and pleasing, the help is easy to access. I think this is a shining example of what ...

is hiarcs a slow searcher

hi folks, i know engines differ a great deal in terms of knowledge and speed of search, and speed isn't everything. I've been comparing hiarcs to stockfish, and it looks to me that hiarcs is much slower to get to a particular depth, but its evaluation seems a little more accurate (similar to stockfi...
