Your Sensor XL has a unique Extended Playing Range of 64 different playing levels, including levels for casual play, mate finder and problem solving levels, aggressive and Quiet, Closed game levels, and several different types of levels especially for beginners. When you set the level, keep in mind that when the computer has more time to think about its moves, it gets stronger and plays better-just like a human chess player!

SAITEK KASPAROV SENSOR XL ended up winning the U1300 Blue Tournament and also tied the U1400 Blue Champion Saitek Mephisto Micro Travel in an end of tournament “Champions Match” with a score of 4-4.
After winning Group C in the U1400 Blue Tournament with an impressive score of 15.1/2 points out of a possible 16 points, SENSOR XL was the top seed for Stage 2. Surprisingly SENSOR XL lost form in it’s Stage 2 group and failed to make the Final 16 stage of the U1400 Blue Tournament and therefore had to continue instead in the U1300 Blue Tournament.
SENSOR XL plays an interesting game and is certainly a handful for any chess computer or human rated below ELO 1500 (1700 USCF).
