Re: What Is The Greatest Human Chess Game Ever Played?

The greatest human chess game ever played is totally based on what level chess you are at. The top level games are very difficult to understand and appreciate, so it is probably a different game for each level. Right and in addition, it is also a matter of taste. A boa constrictor style crush can a...

Re: Is Chess A Sport?

That was a great report. I happened to see it on the TV and couldn't believe my eyes.

Re: Engin Ustun, Houdini and Critter.

Sorry but has this place gone completely mad??? I really don't give a damn about whether Houdini is a clone or not but it really p.... me off to see people question the talent of a programmer who has a record of steady improvement.

Re: How long until your favorite engine finds f4?
