As the first computer in the world, your computer offers you 4 different playing styles! You can choose between the NORMAL playing style, ATTACKING playing style, VERY AGGRESSIVE playing style and even POSITIONAL playing style which is normally considered very difficult for computers. Your computer is actually 4 different chess computers in one. This feature truly offers a new dimension to computer chess, and gives you a unique opportunity of training your chess against different types of players. You can even change the playing style of the computer in the middle of the game. The playing style affects both the choice of opening line and the style of play in the middlegame, but not the endgame........

Your computer has an extensive opening library with more then 1000 variations containing more than 6000 half moves. If this is not enough, your computer offers you as the second chess computer in the world, the ability to program openings and variations into the computer yourself! This feature allows you to build an opening library of your own choice......... If the computer is playing, it will at random pick either a move from its own opening library or from your opening library.........

All chess computers analyses a position simply by looking a number of moves ahead and evaluating the positions. The computer then chooses the move which leads to best position, assuming that the opponent makes the moves, which the computer considers best.

Apart from having more features than any other chess computer in the world, your computer also contains on of the best and most sophisticated chess programs ever made.

In a typical middlegame position the computer analyses around 500 chess positions per second.

A good computer must however also know a lot about chess. Your computer contains a lot of knowledge about piece development, center control, king attacks, king safety, pawn structures, center pawns, open rook files etc. etc. It can also avoid 50 move rule, eternal check and 3rd repetition, and is one of the very few chess computers, which can mate with king, knight and bishop against king.......
