Computer vs Computer part I

One of the things that I do when I am bored is play two computers off agianst each other to test out which is strongest. One such accasion was last night. I made Little Chess Partener Play Microsoft's horrible Chess Titains in two different games. LCP was black in both games.

The first game was between CT's Level 5 and LCP set to easy. I forgot that neither program records the moves so I can't show you the game, but early on CT managed to trade one of his pawns for a peice (a rook, I think), but shortly afterwards dramatiaclly lost this advantage and the game. It is also the only game that I have ever seen where a computer has under-promoted to a Bishop (It didn't really matter - it was immediatly taken in anycase).

The second game was between the hardest leves of both CT and LCP (Level 10 and Hard respectively). I did record this, so you can make up your own mind about it. The strangest thing about this game is that CT walked into a mate in 1 (although the alternitive wasn't that good either). Here is that game:
