My 2nd and 3rd games against chess bot Elani went much like the first game. Elani made some weird moves, reflecting its beginner ranking. I guess it’s easier for a chess programmer to code silly moves into a game than it is to play weak moves.
In this game Elani (white) had lost most of its pieces. The checkmate position uses a queen and knight.
In this 3rd game, Elani (white again) was checkmated using two rooks and a bishop.
It’s time to move up a rung, so next game I’ll try playing chess bot Aron. It’s got a beginner rating of 700, compared to Elani’s beginner rating of 400.
I’ll see how it goes.
