Why you will never ever beat your PC at chess


Despite the complexity of Stuff’s Latvian Gambit opening strategy, this game is going to end in failure. Why? Because the opponent is a computer that can calculate every possible move Stuff might make in the future of the game. Stuff’s comparatively modest calculations are no match for the machine. If you really enjoy being beaten, try Thinking Machine 4, a chess sim that shows you its calculations while you play. Be warned, once the ‘wow’ factor wears off the effect of watching yourself being soundly defeated is soul destroying.
