SCISYS CHESS PARTNER 4000

CHESS PARTNER 4000 is a compact full feature 12 level chess computer. It contains many of the features found on more expensive larger chess computers such as FIND POSITION for verifying the board position and CANCEL ENTRY should you make a mistake and wish to change your mind before a move is entered into the computer’s memory.

CHESS PARTNER 4000 recognizes and makes when necessary such special chess moves as castling, en passant and pawn promotion. It does not make or allow illegal moves.

Because of the advanced programming techniques used in developing this computer it is now possible to dispense with the need for a mains adapter. CHESS PARTNER 4000 will operate for well over 100 hours on a single 9V alkaline battery.

To make your game more enjoyable as your skill improves, try to make your moves as quickly as the computer does. This will not be easy at first but try to make your moves in say, 30 seconds to start with and gradually reduce the time until you are makin moves in five to ten seconds. This is one of the methods used by very strong chess players to improve their game and technique. At tournament level, time taken for each move is an important element and if you can learn this from the beginning your chess will improve rapidly and with it your enjoyment.
