Nov-05-07  m0nkee1: Oh no it wouldn't... it had a tough open postion here... but this programme lasted 74 moves against kasparov in another game and has drawn with other GMs...& 12 years later it still one on the strongest ever mass produced computer ever made

Feb-22-08  realbrob: <m0nkee1> Sorry about that, but this computer is a real patzer. The game was lost by move 10.

9..Kg6? This looks like a beginner move, putting the king in a very very unpleasant position. It should have given back the piece and accept the loss of a pawn. Even though maybe it was already too late.

The reason it lasted 74 moves is that engines (especially bad ones) never know when the time has come to resign.

  Tomlinsky: Well, considering it had an 8-bit 6502 CPU @3.2Mhz, 192KB RAM (256KB for the experimetal I believe), an opening 'book' with a whopping ~10,000 moves and an ELO of ~1750+ if the wind was blowing in the right direction I'd say that the programmers, Dan & Kath Spracklen, did pretty well all things considered.

So yes, you'd have every right to expect your 32-bit RISC-based, 520Mhz, 128MB RAM, 64MB FLASH with 4GB expansion slot PDA to do somewhat better really. Even if it was a 'worse' program able to calculate 150x faster. And your wristwatch will do better still in a few years time. ;)
