I like PC chess programs. They are quite fascinating. The Shredder Chess PC Program is one of the best PC Chess Programs available. It has won 13 world computer chess championships titles. No other chess program has won so many world championship titles.
This successful chess software is for game playing and is also an excellent chess analysis tool for chess players worldwide. But you can get also excellent chess teaching software for beginners in chess.
Shredder is Computer Chess World Champion!
From September until October 2010 the Computer Chess World Championship has taken place in Kanazawa, Japan.
Chess programs from all over the world came to Japan to compete for the world title.
Shredder managed to win the World Computer Chess Software Championship title undefeated with 8 points out of 9 rounds. All programs ran on equal hardware. Winning his 13th world champion title Shredder remains the most successful chess program ever.
Outstanding playing strength
This online version below is much weaker than the PC Version which you can buy and download. It is almost impossible to beat the PC Version, even for a chess grandmaster. You can play against Shredder, analyze with him and solve chess puzzles.
Can mimic your playing behavior
In addition to the outstanding playing strength Shredder is also able to mimic the play of a human chess player with any playing strength. He even deliberately makes typical human mistakes in those levels.
It keeps track of your performance
Solve 1000 built in chess puzzles. Shredder keeps track of your performance and offers advice if needed.
You can adjust the playing strength
You can adjust Shredder’s playing strength from beginner to master level. If you like, Shredder automatically adjusts his strength to yours. He even calculates an Elo rating for you. This is how the playing strength of chess players is typically measured.
A coach is watching your play
When you play a game a coach is watching your moves and warns you if you are about to make a mistake. See how you are getting better and better the more games you play.
Shredder also participated at the World Computer Chess Championship 2009 in Pamplona/Spain where it tied second place. The winner was Rybka.
You can replay all games from this chess tournament below and study the way how chess computers play. You will find that many play like humans, especially Shredder. The evaluation process of chess programs has evolved during the last thirty years and they play extremely strong.
