Now tell me how do you win those monsters in such conditions if you are not a 2700 player.
I am pretty strong player and cannot do it.

Looking forward your recipe regards
Fernando
Hi Fernando,
:D
I know that you were kidding,just kidding pal :P
Now seriously,these wins I told you about are real,this was achieved thanks to my knowledge in the opening theory....meaning that sometimes,in rare cases,you drive the monster to a loosing position with a will prepared opening line and bam,it never recover :D
I've played over 800 games at long time controls against all types of chess engines since the year 2002 and I am still playing and since then I am getting better and better,I have a long long database with my games which I am arranging right now and I'll start to post the most interesting games....
Keep on playing and don't give up,
Dr.Wael Deeb

Ahhh, there is the key!!!!
I will confess you that my opening repertoire is worth nothing. I can still be caught by a variation of the giucco piano known since 1650. I have never been capable of studying even the basics of openings and for that, of endings. 100% of my strenght is in the middle game. ...if I get there. And if I get there but I do not win, I am crushed by any beginner that at least knows the rule of oposition.
So, as computer knows lot more than me about opennings and far more than me about endings, but also are extremely strong in the middle game, well, you see, the best I can do is to manage to give good fight along 40-50 moves, till death cath me and get me to Hades.

My best
Fernando

Of course: the little known program 'Everybody's cup of tea', which will hopefully hit the market soon :D

Have a good time in Leiden!

Hi Jeroen,

Allo Allo

Good Moaning,

is this a hybrid engine? combining all the engines at Leiden? I have to say that my cups of tea when not in England are not up to standard - so I drink Coffee - maybe that can be added to the hybrid engine.

I hope I will see you for the final day of Leiden.

Seriously this time, Fern. If you can get to move 40 ag. Hiarcs, Shredder and the like in a fairly = position, you can do much better than I. I am in a deep hole there is no return from long before move 40. :(

I have gotten up to move 56 against Movei on a really slow computer at an almost equal position. Then it was able to kick my ass in the endgame, so far I havent been able to repeat that performance.
