    Can anyone recommend any sites for playing against non-human opponents on line, preferably with varying difficulty levels? Thanks.
    (Yes, I'm too lazy and cheap to find and buy a game!)

    no choices of difficulty im afraid but this is a rather novel one:

    I think the Think Machine 4 is too slow.
    Try:
    http://www.postcardchess.com/computerchess.html
    http://www.math.duke.edu/~blake/chess.html

    If you are really having troubles, try to Google it.

    Doesnt FICS (http://www.freechess.org/) let you play against chess engines? There are also some online sites for computer opponents listed at http://www.chessopolis.com/online.htm

    Plus if you are too cheap to buy a game, why not download winboard and some of the free winboard chess engines like spike or gnuchess? Though perhaps the "lazy" part of "too lazy and cheap" rules that out
