Hi, Does anyone have any tips for beating chess computers??. I recently beat a 2700 Comp on ICC . I find that computers are very weak to bishop sacs on h7 or full on h file attack. anyone else have any other tips?

I find it best to attack them at the power supply. Switch off them off at the wall or remove their batteries. After that, they're generally a walk over.

maron, see my game v a near 2700 ICC comp in a 1min game , mated it!..in the 'shockers and pits' thread.

major tip, is to block the position with interlocking pawns ala van-wely.

Krabbe documents a 2100-odd player called Nemeth who consistently beats the 2700-odd computers with a peculiar game style that he has developed.

Yery interesting and amusing page, although it's worth noting that it was written in 2001. Computers have come a long way since then.

This is an amazing thing.

A week or so ago before I read this thread I had just beaten Crafty in a blitz game for the first time after about 150 tries (several draws though).

Last night, after remembering this thread, I played 1.d4 d6 2. h4 !! and beat it soundly. It 'won' the h pawn of course which was not a good idea as it was castled kingside.

Amazing, that's all I can say.
