A Game Of Chess

4 10 2008

I’ve been carrying on teaching Harry chess, and since I was on my own today, I decided to play my two chess games on the computer against each other. So, it was Apple Chess against Chessmaster 9000. Who do you think won? I’d like to say it was good old Apple, but since Chessmaster 9k is a professional chess game, it had the expert knowledge to checkmate Apple’s King in 8 moves! 1-0 to Chessmaster!

I just installed 9k on Harry’s PC. He’s playing on Beginner mode and so far all I’ve heard from the other room is “Checkmate” around 6 times. He’s still not the best player in the world…
