Subject: Gianluca vs. Sanny
Just for fun, I pitted Gianluca Cisana's Java applet program (http://
chess.pcriot.com) against the incorrigible Sanny's Getclub, another
Java applet. The result was as I expected. Despite having only a 6-ply
horizon and no opening book, pcriot whipped getclub convincingly. The
game is full of less-than-best moves on both sides, but getclub's
moves were far worse:

Black's moves is due mainly to the need to switch from one screen to
the other and enter Black's move manually.)

British master Amos Burn once quipped sardonically that somehow it
had worked out that never in his chess career did he ever beat a
perfectly healthy opponent. By the same token, Sanny would have us
believe that no one ever beats a perfectly healthy Getclub. It always
has a bug, which Sanny never discovers until *_after_* the loss.

Every day is not sunday. There was a bug when that game was played.
Now the bug is removed So GetClub will play stronger now.

Heck, you can make an even stronger claim than that. Seirawan twice
beat Karpov in serious games. Karpov in turn has beaten world
champions Anand, Kasparov, Spassky, Petrosian and Tal. The last three
named also beat Botvinnik, who in turn at various times beat Alekhine,
Euwe, Capablanca, and Lasker, who in turn beat Steinitz. Therefore
you, and by extension GetClub, have beaten every world champion!

- "GetClub is playing as good as Rybka"
- My Java applet whipped getclub

So I'll soon be contacted by Rybka programmers for consulting ;-)

Good day, Gianluca

Indeed.

Although you could consider marketing it on your own with slogans such
as "Outclasses Alekhine!"

After all it did beat GetClub, which once won one game against me when I
overlooked a mate in one, I have beaten GM Ftacnik in a simul, Ftacnik
has won a rapid game against GM Seirawan, who beat Karpov in a
blind-fold game, who won a match by default versus Bobby Fischer, who
beat Spassky, who beat Petrosian, who beat Botvinnik, who gained the
world title when it was vacant due to Alekhine's death.
