Yeah, I saw the post and thought the same thing...
The game is fun. I have somehow ended up drawing by threefold repetition in 52 moves at 2204 Elo US. If you add the computer side too, it is actually 104 moves. I never thought I could even come close to this level. Until I can do it consistently, I still am no good because 2246 total cremates me!hehe I have never won a single game above 1600 in my life so far. I am starting to go over the academy section to learn more about the theories. It is interesting. Even though unlikely, it gives one hope of maybe winning at least once. Thank you all for sharing your winnings. By the way, the game lasted about two hours and forty-five minutes. So, according to my understanding... 2200 is considered a low level master.
I was studying a game by two masters in history in the database of Chessmaster 10th Edition. The one master decided to fold. I decided to carry out the game to see if the side that seems to be the winner could be won even by me. I set the level to Chessmaster, and after about an hour and a half of playing the end-game, I won. So Chessmaster is beatable. You just have to be able to get to the position where you can have a won-end-game.
