I have a question about the Sparring Partner...
well, on top of the page, it says that you can make it easier by clicking on settings and changing the time or ply... but all that does is change how long it takes the computer to do a move...
I may sound dumb... but, that partner is one hell of a chess player... I can never beat him.. it's been 2 weeks I'm playing with him... lol
help plz! l

After you click setting, either set the ply to 1, or the time to 1.

The sparring partner is quite good. :)

I find it very hard to beat a computer, they're just so damn good :-)
Saying that, I used a King's Gambit to defeat the portable chess thingy I have at home ;-)

Yes, Computer programs with no opening book, no tablebases, and on just 2 ply have performed at 1800 level! This means, they think just two moves deep. However, they use all strategy programmed into them.
