Believe it or not, Chess Titans isn't that hard to beat. The real secret is the "undo move" option. If I play with no errors, I can usually win, but sometimes I make a mistake which can only be seen 3-4 moves later. Analyzing this, I can go back and see what I should have done instead. This can improve your analysis skills while playing, as you must reanalyze your position after you have determined the faulty move. A few times with that undo option, and you should start to realize you don't need it as much as you used to (hopefully!). Thank Zeus for Ctrl + Z !
That isn't a chess game, that's trial and error, you could eventually beat Houdini using that technique, if you're taking back moves left, right and center, it shouldn't count as a real game.
Yes, this is a trial and error technique. However, you must agree that humans learn through trial and error. What I suggested was a method of learning how to win. It would be hilarious if when grand masters played, the other player shouted "MULLIGAN!" whenever they realized they made an error. But that is not what I was trying to get across...If by learning through trial and error, you can eventually win WITHOUT the undo option, then that would be a viable means of winning against Chess Titans. Merely a studying technique. When I do play a "real game" with chess titans, I refrain from using the undo option.
Chess Titans is an awful program, make sure you try to pawnstorm it, I've found that castling opposite it and then throwing pawns at it is a good way of defeating it (even if it wouldn't be the best plan in a normal game, it works more frequently against Titans)
Also it doesn't really understand positional sacrifices at all and so doesn't prepare itself against them, it will generally play moves like h6, g6 or g5 without any real worry for its own king safety, just try and weaken some of the squares around its king and tempt its own pawns forward, it'll probably oblige.
It also seems to go apeshit when it realizes it's losing and just plays WEIRD moves, such as giving up entire rooks sometimes on a whim... idk who programmed this lol. It's always good fun beating an engine though, I rarely have trouble with it any more (no-one past 1500 really does I don't think), just keep playing it, you'll find out its weakspots for yourself. GL.
lol you explained it in nutshell all true +1
COMPUTER IS PROGRAM TO REAPEAT THE MOVE SO KEEP PLAYING IT AND UNDERSTAND THE MOVES AND GO FOR UNORTHODOX OR VARIATIONS NOT FAMILIAR, THE COMPUTER WILL GET CONFUSE THOUGH HE IS PLAYING TACTICALLY........THER IS NO SUCH THING AS PURE HUMAN LIKE CPU ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE...MAN MAKE COMPUTERS!
Computer is dumb, it has no intuition; it is pure calculation.
+1 Yes, these guys have nailed it. It does not see positional dangers developing. The program does have a number of idiosyncrasies. Pawnstorm against the castled position plus weird endgame behavior gave this position http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/probing-the-ai on level 10. Notice, game is "even" at two pawns apiece, lol. I try to keep my knights/bishops parked and out of the way of my pawns when playing Titans.
I develop and play normaly
here is a position that occured out of dragon Levenfish where I pawnstormed the Kingside and then it castled there. I had 4 pawns on the e-hfiles on the fourth rank at one point. then it commited a major blunder
should have seen that. knew I had mate
I have windows 7 version of chess titan, and here is a game I am playing against the Titan, I am black and playing the stone wall, Not sure if there is a way to re
Meh, white's positional standpoint is cramped. You have a slight spacial advantage. A strong attack on the center, such as a d5 push should be sufficient to gain an advantage.
Chess Titans is a beast
