Subject: GetClub chess got 2 new muscles.
There was a update in GetClub Chess to think it cleverly. It all
happened as Taylor Kingston analysed the game of Easy Level. I found
there was a weakness in GetClub approach. That thing was updated So
now it will be a good Competition to play with it.

Still I am not sure it will be able to beat pcriot program or not.

Lets hope GetClub stays strong against it. I played against Rybka 1
sec / move GetClub failed to see 15 depth combination and lost the
game early.

I do not understand how Rybka sees 15 depth in just 1 sec. While
GetClub sees till 10-11 depth only in 1 second.

Nope. Looks like those "two new muscles" don't work very well, as
Cisana's program won again without much difficulty. Both programs
played rather poorly in the opening, but once Cisana's applet got its
position untangled GetClub collapsed quickly:

GetClub as usual often took much more time than its advertised
maximum of 60 seconds for this level, whereas pcriot.com rarely used
that much. Any apparently slow moves by Black here were merely
instances when I had left the room and did not enter a move
immediately.

Sanny, I hate to destroy your cherished illusions, but GetClub does
not see anywhere near a 10- or 11-ply depth in one second. Nor in one
minute. Nor in an hour. It can't even beat a program that has a fixed
depth of 6 ply.
