I used to have a copy of this chess program that I ran on a Tandy 1000 PC. It always kicked my butt. I knew a couple of really good chess players who could beat it sometimes. They said the best way to beat it was to trade pieces equally, so you could get a chance to get the upper hand. Well, maybe some day?

Never understood the "Olivetti" option, I wonder why the high resolution wasn't implemented (works in 640x200), since they had it almost ready for the Hercules (the driver is very similar).

Psion Chess is a really superb program. Especially the Atari-ST version of the game was the strongest chess-engine in the middle of the 80's.
