Stockfish comes with levels, so if you set it at level 1 a novice can possibly beat it. At higher levels it is harder to beat.

The same with the computers on here. 

So yes, you can beat it, but probably not at its highest level.

Playing against computers tends not to help when playing humans, who play differently.

 

I haven't played Stockfish, but in using it to analyze openings, it is clear that the program overvalues certain things (like the bishop pair), and has some trouble with really deep tactics with later positional implications.

 

Good example - against the Breyer Variation of the King's Gambit (1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Qf3), Stockfish at depth 20 will invariably play 3. ..Qh4+, which is an objectively poor move which takes quite a bit of time (more than 10 moves) to fully punish.  It looks good at first because after 4. g3 fxg3 5. hxg3 black has consolidated the gambit pawn and white's pawns look weak, but the tempi white then gains on the black queen lead to an avalanche of tactics which first stunts black's development, and then wins back material.  Black will eventually have to give up at least an exchange on this line, though he can hold on to the material advantage for quite some time before he runs out of options (but he eventually does).

There is a site (that they don't like us to mention here) where you can play computers at different levels at variants.

It was very useful when trying out a new variant to improve my play up to a certain level.

Hello everyone, 

Any guess what is the Elo rating of Stockfish 8 at level 6 out of 20? 

1400136896

I've drew stock fish before in bullet and blitz!

Great, but what is it's Elo strength at that level (6/20) ?
