Chess: how can I improve?
I'm not really a very dedicated chess player, but next year I want to beat my computer. X-board with the GNU chess engine running behind it.
I haven't played for years, but last night I almost had it on the run. Any hints for beating it? Any chess learning packages you know of? I can't find any good ones.
Thanks!I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
I do play chess but only with my friends not with computer. So never thought of getting some software for the same.

Not sure if there's anything similar for Linux ... So far X-board coupled with GNU chess is the best I've found. There are a lot of open source chess engines, and X-board is only a front-end gui to make it look a bit better.
I've tried learning from a book before, but I lost interest. It was just a thought.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

A new resolution for the NEW YEAR.

I would challenge him to beat GNU Chess, but he doesn't run Linux. I find it frustrating to be beaten by a machine ... The programme often moves its queen early on, or attacks too soon. Perhaps that's a weakness?I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Chess programs beat most human players. I personally play Go so I wouldnt really know. I used to play chess with a windows app called Chessmaster 3000, I thought it was pretty good. I'm sure you can run it through wine though.
I have played X board for years, cuz I wanna beat it's @ss so badly.
Good luck fingal....I don't think it's beatable. heh
I had it on the run one day, then it got serious and made me look bad while kicking my tail.
