Visualizing Thoughts Of A Chess Program

22nd November 2006 morning, I got the web link of a chess program that shows its thaughts while deciding on moves. It gives a simulation with graphics of the possible moves the computer is currently considering. Looks beautiful though the interface/ specially the knight, bishop, queen are not easily recognizable. Also it didn't let me choose what I want to promote my pawn to - Queen, Rook, Bishop or Night and defaulted the promotion to Queen while for my position, promoting it to a Rook was sufficient. Still I would say this is a wonderful project!

Chess Machine Thinking

I was easily able to defeat it playing a game with white.

If you want to read about a practical new approach to chess visualization based on 800 positions taken from real games, then check out my blog at chess visualization blog.

This new approach to chess visualization training will stretch your vision from 4 to 39 half-moves while expanding it from 1 to 2 to 3 sectors of the board.

It might be just the thing you need to work your chess visualization muscles!

Best of everything.
