CHESS ON THE COMPUTER

Filed under: Chess Miscellaneous — Baron Turner @ 10:52 am

Today, chess has come a long way. You can not only play it with your friends, you can also play it on the computer. Chess software nowadays is very well developed, indeed, times have really changed!
There is human vs. computer chess – in 1996, chess Grandmaster Gary Kasparov played s six-game match against IBM Chess Software which was nicknamed Deep Blue. He said that it was one of the most difficult games of his career, and the score was 4-2. However, since then chess software has become very well developed. You can find different kinds of chess softwares and run them on different operating systems like Windows, MAC, Unix, Linux and even the Palm. You have various choices to tweak the categories or functions of the chess software that you choose.
There is also chess training software – the basic aim of which is to improve your visualization and your move calculation skills. Remember that these two are basic skills that you need in order to move from being an amateur to a master. There are different kinds of chess training softwares out there, which also teach strategies for the opening middle game and also the endgame – so you would not only be able to learn to plan strategies but you would also be able to block your opponent’s moves, while simultaneously thinking of your game plan.
Don’t forget peer-to-peer chess software, which allows you to play chess against remote opponents without having to connect to a chess server. All you need to do is just connect to each other over the Internet or over any other kind of network connection – your home Windows LAN would do as well. You would be able to connect directly to a pre-arranged player, or you could even find an available player by using the available message boards.
