This is a brilliant game that I played. Chess Titan played the Riga Variation of the Ruy Lopez and I showed it how bad materialism is.
I wish someone would pit the chess progs against Chess Titan to see the acctual playing strength. However, being a solid 1700 myself I am estimating that the lvl 10 strength is 1600. I'm not sure if I should be happy that 1600 is considered advanced or if I need more chess lessons to up my playing strength.
wow, you gave Chess Titans a but kicking!
Move 20: "Ng5! wins quicker, but I wanted to slowly and painfully destroy that dumb computer program on hard."
awww! Why not 25. Ba3 ? lol
I set chess titans to level 10 and it responed to my e 4 with c6. Can ruy lopez still be possible from there?
I have Fritz and getting Rybka soon. This is just a game I was playing in my free time. I know Chess Titans sucks, but it fell for an opening trap that looks pretty obvious.
I do not want to offend anyone, but the chess titan program plays very poor quality chess against experienced players On level 10, I believe it plays at the strength of 15-1600 in closed positions, however tactically in opened positions, I would say it plays at a 1700 level. Congrats on the game. nice opening, but if you want to play a strong program purchase fritz,shredder, rybka, or even chess master will play at a 2300 level or more depending on the position. Nice game though, no offense intended, gl in your future chess games.
I have found it to be really inconsistant. Occasionally it plays a series of very good moves - then it will do something completely off the wall. Its like there is an element of randomness programmed into it.
All you have to do to beat Titans on Level 9 or 10 is sac a piece to open a hole in its castled position. Even if the sac is unsound, it does not have the capacity to defend itself adequately and usually you'll either quickly regain your material or bring about mate. Also, it is fairly weak in the endgame.
Looking at that game, though, it played much less skilfully there than it did against me on Level 10, even though I won eventually (trying to mate with K+Q vs K when your opponent is STILL taking minutes per move, even when there is only one move available, is torture). For reference, that was on an Athlon 3700+.
Does anyone know where it has been documented or estimated what ranking would be associated with each level of difficulty in Chess Titans?
I'm not that good (I do ok with chessmaster at the 1200-1300 level), and can beat level 5 more than half the time, So I figure 5 is around 1200. I read someone estimate level 10 at 1700, which seems low to me. Level 6 is tough for me and I figure it may be around 1400.
edit: Now that I look at the match, it doesn't seemed to have played so well for level 10. Maybe the incremental improvement diminishes when progressing to higher levels, for example, level 6 is much better than 5, but 7 may be only slightly better than 6 etc.
