What chess engine plays the most aggressive chess vs humans?

I'll say Chess Tiger 2007. I know some GM will not even play it on ICC.

MChess Pro & Deep Junior are nice too along with Kittinger's baby, wChess.

Deep Sjeng was good too.

O man, I forgot that 1, that's horrible because I helped Chris test it a little bit on ICC

Hi Lonnie,

after the opening up to the "middle" of the "middlegame" :-) ...

1. Stockfish 2.1.1 JA PHQ
2. Spark 1.0
3. Critter 0.9 / 1.4

Some good ideas here by different others ...

1. Junior
2. Hannibal
3. SmarThink

Very strong too is Aristarch and often AnMon with some good ideas. Houdini is playing very strong in the early middlegame.

Older one:
Kallisto / WChess ... much more interesting as ChessSystemTal (more or less an mythos which can't be right. Virtual Chess I too ...

Hiarcs versions and Gandalf versions 4.x

Best
Frank

Load the SWCR database with 160.000 games and search a bit for such games. Your result will be the same as I wrote I think.
I like computer chess!

Do You say CSTAL was more a myth with respect to his attacking capabilities or vocation?
