Haven;t played Chess in a few years. I'm about to ....

.... play against a decent Chess program I happen to own called 'Chessmaster 7000'. I'm going to play against the machine's idea of a 1000 rating. I've never held a rating, but I've beaten players with ratings as high as 1800. A long LONG time ago.

Am I going to get my ass kicked?

Yeah. I'm expecting a checkmate in less than 25 moves.
Good luck though.

Sounds exciting. I am a chess fan too. I haven't played that game in a long while neither with man nor machine.

None of my friends play me anymore, after I kicked all their asses repeatedly.

My friend has a rating. I don't know what though. He competes in national championships. I haven't beaten in a long time (or since he became good). I.e. he started reading chess strategy books and became obsessed with it. LOL

I enjoy a game here and there.

I don't know Volcana, just give it a go I guess.

Re: Haven;t played Chess in a few years. I'm about to ....

Rating 1033 AKA 'Raj' on Chessmaster 7000 went down pretty easily. 38 moves, 5:07. It made what I'd consider some pretty basic oversights, like dropping a rook, so no credit to me.

Chessmaster 7000 turns out to be a pretty well-known product, but the current world champion has a rating of 2796, so 1033 isn't exactly an expert. I'm gonna try 1100 and see how it goes. I've never beaten rating 2000 on this program, so I should find my level pretty quickly.

I hate level ten on my current chess program. The only I can win is to sacrifice piece for piece. I'm okay in the end game but it's getting there that I struggle with.

1. Make a deliciously edible chicken that'll make any taste bud sing in delight
2. Make a chicken von straight-to-trash-can
3. Fall into the cooking pot and die


Please make your selections



Geez, some people...

I think you will change your mind and end up ordering Chinese, and play computer backgammon while you wait just to be different.
