This time I played Cyrus at its level 5, which more or less correspond to half a minute per move, sometimes more. I played fast, too, and won more or less easily with a devastating attack. To play these programs is a lesson of how much current stuff has advanced. Nowadays you are not going to meet, never, a program that lose time with not useful moves or do preposterous moves from an strategic point of view. In those years they did commit mistakes of that kind and sometimes so grave that tactical skill was not enough to recover. Perhaps that is the deep reason why we love dedicated units: they leave us to maul them-...from time to time.
