After 2 month, today GetClub Chess was made Twice Stronger by removing
a Buggy code with better code.

Now, GetClub will play much stronger moves !!!.

Last 2 months there was no improvement, But today somehow GetClub was
made stronger.

Now very tough games at GetClub.

Beginner: 2200+
Easy: 2300+
Normal: 2400+

Play Chess at: http://www.GetClub.com/Chess.html

A few advices of Help Bot were used to improve the game. So now you
will see a real tough game at GetClub.

Now, you can play against Human Opponents also. Just choose your
Opponent and start playing with him. But you need to wait for some
opponent to arrive.

I am hoping to see more wins by GetClub against the strong players.

Bye
Sanny.

Today there was a lot of improvement. And I feel now even Beginner
Level will be very difficult to win.

Play a game with Beginner Level and see how strongly it plays now.

Today GetClub beat twice.

First time Beginner Win the game with Black pieces.

Then I tried Baby Level 2 sec / move vs Jester 3 sec / move.

And GetClub was ahead by "Knight & Bishop" but it ended as Draw as
GetClb was unable to win ending with "Knight & Bishop"


So I think now it would be a lot tougher to win the Beginner Level.

Do not play with Higher levels as lower Levels are much stronger now.
As now GetClub Tactics has been improved twice.

Actually, buying a new computer after
each game is a preferable solution to
these minor GC hiccups.

It could be argued that since the GetClub
program shows no signs of actual thinking
during play, this is something of an unfair
advantage for the humans-- possibly even
explaining why Sanny's program so rarely
wins.

How about this scientific test: try playing
the Easy level using just your intuition, no
fair "thinking".

Game removed. You can start a new game.

I suggest you restart your computer if you have been using it for long
hours. As sometimes when lots of programs are working the Game slows
and hangs.

The game IS being played on Easy level, not Beginner.
There is no point in continuing as the game is now in an incorrect
state.
GC has skipped its move and has put its opponent back in.

I think you are using Beginner Level. Try Easy Level and then it will
play much stronger.

Today Help Bot played against Easy Level and there was quite good
game.

Browsers do not do justice to applets and Applets gets too little
resources So sometimes the Board pieces disappear for sometime. You
can always restart your computer and continue the game if some error
happens.

Browsers do not do justice to applets and Applets gets too little
resources So sometimes the Board pieces disappear for sometime. You
can always restart your computer and continue the game if some error
happens.

When the game starts It always show "R-h1" as the corner point. Once
the game is played it reset the last move.

I think you are using Beginner Level. Try Easy Level and then it will
play much stronger.

Today Help Bot played against Easy Level and there was quite good
game.

I've just re-opened this game and now the knight appears to back on
f3.
GetClub claims to have played R-h1, another impossible move: the rook
has been on h1 since the start of the game.

I tried to test the "improved" GetClub against Par Excellence.
First GC forgot its opening book after 1.e4 e5 (possibly cause I
confused it by flipping the board).
Then it played a series of what appeared to me as completely random

Then GC's knight on f3 EXPLODED!?! (seriously)
It claimed to have played the move --f3 and promptly removed its own

Nowm you have to think even longer as today again GetClub was
improved.

And now GetClub will play Twice stronger than earlier.

So it would be more difficult to win the Beginner & Easy Level.

No, it often took much longer than that. Your program has never
adhered to its own self-proclaimed time limits.


So you were

Yes, I have discovered that thinking is a generally a good idea when
playing chess. Perhaps your program should try it.

> Till 9h move White was ahead with all pieces occuping the Center.

Nonsense, Sanny. White completely wasted the advantage of the first
move when it played 3.d3 and 5.Nd5 e6 6.Nf4. The latter was an
especially stupid maneuver, wasting two tempi to put the knight on an
inferior square. It also delayed the development of your QB because it
must stay behind to protect the b-pawn for the time being.

> The Bishop and Two knights were attacking your King.

Again, nonsense. The bishop and two knights were hopping around like
fleas on a hot griddle, accomplishing nothing except making themselves
vulnerable. My king was quite safe. There was no "attack."

Not to mention winning a piece.

Yes, your program has a great knack for getting its own pieces
trapped. This in this so-called "attack" your pieces basically tripped
over their own feet and fell on their swords.

They don't play any better, they just take longer. And contrary to
your claim of improvement, beginner level actually played worse today
than a few days before.

And did you notice that it let me make two moves in a row, Black's
25th and 26th? You're getting buggier all the time, Sanny.

Your Game.

You took 54 sec / move While GetClub took 15 sec / move. So you were
thinking ~ 4 times longer on average.

Till 9h move White was ahead with all pieces occuping the Center.

The Bishop and Two knights were attacking your King.

9. Be2-g4{10} Qd8-a5{312}

You thought for 5 min on this move and then after 6 moves you got an
extra pawn.

15. Nf4-h5{8} Bg7xb2{22}

Now, the White Bishop was stuck in the corner which you took on 21st
move

21. Bh3xg4{12} f5xg4{18}

Now you were a Bishop extra So you easily win the game.

This was Beginner Level. Then think how good the Easy & Normal Level
will play.

Damn pigeons.

A classic example of taking a step forward in order to be able to take
two backwards ...
