LadyMisil, you are 100% right. The computer rated at 2500 knows nothing. I am NOT being sarcastic. It does not know strategy, tactics, openings, middle games or endings. It plays around 1250 USCF. It is very bad at chess.
Hi, Chess2knights. I would have conceded it knows tactics based on brute force analysis, but I wholeheartedly agree on the rest, especially positional chess. Thank you for your agreeing and commenting.
Actually it is not even good at tactics. lol. I joined your team yesterday.
I absolutely agree with chess2Knights and LadyMisil. They both are smart doing their analysis of that bad "service" (if we may call it that) offered by chess.com. I have seen a large amount of "analysis" (if we may call it that) made by the computer rated at 2500 and I may say that, for example, LadyMisil could defeat it easily.
LadyMisil's positional understanding is "classical" and "modern" at once, in the way of a master.
I am sure that she knows how to defeat different styles of play.
Finally, I would like to thank to chess2Knights and LadyMisil for their smart comments.
Wow! Sebast, I thank you for your huge and generous compliments. I am quite speechless. This is not what it was like at the beginning of this forum topic at all, and frankly, I never even knew you before this comment.
I am not a master by any means, but my understanding of chess may be at master level. (Or it may not.) I'm just not a good player for someone with my knowledge. But for you to say all this, ... wow!
