Well I just advanced both games one level up and the results on this third game were significantly different! As you said Tom the MM is stronger and although the Cent. played a great game, the MM can play very brutal. There are some very nice features w/in the Centurion such as being able to use the study games for a self rating etc. There is a quirk w/in the Centurion. When you play it in the FUN LEVEL and then exit out and go back to regular play it still seems to play at the fun level regardless of what the LCD readout says the level is. If I remember correctly, I read something on this site that also identified that as an issue w/ the MM. The only way I have found so far is to remove the batteries or the source of power from the game....clear the memory and then re-install the batteries and it plays fine again. Have you found that to be the case w/ your game Tom and if so do you have another way to correct this quirk ?

Hi all
I thought I would share with you the results of the two matches so far (at the default level for both games) between the two above named chess computers ... the results were surprising to me. First, I have owned the MM for some time and found it to play a very strong game at the default level ( 5 sec's per move) as well as all the other levels excluding the fun levels. I just recently acquired the Centurion and figured it would be an interesting game (it was) to play these two against each other....  in my mind the outcome was already a given !! LOL...  Wrong !!  The MM played white for both games and LOST very solidly to the Centurion...  both games. Maybe I am missing something here...and I prob. am (and intend to do this match up at higher levels of play) but based on the higher ELO of the MM I was totally caught off guard by the results. I would be curious as to what you think......   


Don't underestimate the Centurion. Even my Atlanta had hard times when he had to fight the Centurion. I cannot tell you the reason why the Centurion plays so strongly against other chess computers, but keep in mind that his programme is from the same programmer who also wrote the programmes of the Master Chess and the Atlanta.

Perhaps you should adjust another playing mode with the Master Chess, for instance "active" instead of "passive" or whatever. I'm not sure whether this helps. Anyway, the Master Chess is definitely the better chess computer.
