Therefore, care to specify what do you mean when you say "computer"?
I guess I mean the chess.com computer program. It's not big blue I guess but to me it might as well be. Anyway well it just feels pretty good to know that it's possible for me to beat it. What felt even better was that I didn't have to get to the endgame to do it. I won in 19 moves.
It's pretty unlikely that I'll put the time into the game to get really good. My second best game was I beat Chessmaster for playstation 2 on 2200. What was really weird about that game was that I was able to put the game back to the very beginning and remember every single move I made to replay it for someone else.
So it's weird sometimes my memory is awesome and I play super sharp but most of the other times I play I have a general sense of anger and boredom while I play. If the game gets too tedious sometimes I lose focus.
