    I thought I'd train blitz against fritz 9, and set the handicap level on 2082. is there some other setting that's making it to throw the game, because frankly, this was way too easy.

    funny how it thinks the game is about equal after exchanging rooks, but I guess it just didn't have the time to look deep enough to realize it's totally lost...

    The new Fritz is like an aircraft cockpit and I haven't gotten used to it. I prefer an engine like GNUChess or Surprise with an opening book so that you get 2000-2200 opposition. I would be willing to bet you that 99% of players here could not beat GNUChess 5 with an opening book (and the human does not consult any opening books).
