Thanks for the advice! I've been thinking the same thing. The Grandmaster has the look and size that I 've been looking for and I hope it will better transalate to playing with tournament style boards and pieces against human opponents. I guess if I was to start beating it too much, that would be a good problem to have!

Hi there Mark!

I think Ian covered it really well. What I can tell you is that back in the days where I actually had time to play with my computers I did enjoy playing with the Grandmaster and from your message I think that is a good alternative for you.

I just find its beep a little annoying and you can't turn it of, but that's just me 

Regards,

Ismenio

Hello Mark,

Welcome to the board.

If you are prepared to spend around 60/ $100 on a modern dedicated chess computer it will give you a very good game even set at an average response time of 5 secs per move.
This would include the Grandmaster model that you mentioned and with the Exclusive any program from the MM IV upwards.

I am not sure whether there is a blitz computer rating list available.

Ian.

Hello all, I'm Mark, a chess computer noob. Right now I have Chess Tiger 15 on my Sony SJ33 (love it), a Kasparov Olympiad and Excalibur Touch Chess. I'm enjoying my new hobby but I'm wondering if there are sites which have ratings of chess computers at different time levels, 10-20 seconds per move. When I play humans I don't mind waiting for them to move, but I get impatient quickly waiting on chess computers to make up their minds.

Right now I'm looking to buy a tournament style set such as an Exclusive or Grandmaster but I would hate to buy it and it be too slow on all but the weakest levels. Does anyone have advice on how to be more patient with the computer?

PC Computer chess is at the other extreme though. Fritz or Fruit on my PCs are so fast and so strong that it is a humiliating experience playing them. If they thought for at least 5 seconds per move I would not feel as bad when they crush me.

I would guess my Elo would be around 1400-1500, but that's based on my training level on Chess Tiger.

Thanks in advance,
Mark
