Hey, Hey,

my first chess computer.
I know all about Chess Challenger 7,
I mean I losed my computer for a long time.

For 20 years I played here much tournament between the levels (not with CL4).

With DB/PB or (PB/DB middel of the keyboard) you can start a new move.
Must go to Level 1 and start the move, Level 3 and start the move :-)))
So you can play a tournament between levels :-))

CL5 can solved easy Mate in 3 positions.

CL7 losed mutch games against CL3 and CL3 against CL1.
In my first rating list is CL3 on the same level as CL2 and a little bit better
as CL1. CL7 is playing a little bit better as CL3. CL4 can not solved all
postions with mate in 2!!

CL4 is stronger as CL7 but the time the time ...

CL3 is ~ 40 seconds
CL2 is ~ 10-15 seconds

The other levels are correct.
Against CL7 I won my first game after 3 weeks (my mother give me this computer
to christmas) against a computer.

OK, enough ...
