This was posted several years ago in a different account. I wanted to be sure I kept it, so I am re-posting it here:

As strong as Computer Chess Engines are these days, they are nearly impossible to beat. Well I did the nearly impossible back in 2013 in a Time-Odds game against GnuChess, which was rated 2599 at the time.

My Computer Opponent and I both began the game with 60 seconds each on the clock. However, I had the benefit of a 60 second increment with each move, whereas GnuChess received no bonus time.

It is an enormous accomplishment to beat any chess computer even under a time-odds situation. I hope you enjoy the game:
