Default Junior 8 --- incredible moves!

J8 must have some kind of specialized knowledge when evaluating moves,
because so far I am very impressed with it's play!!

Examples:

I was playing white against it in a KIA (5' + 10") and on the 11th move, it
played Ke7, foregoing K-side castling!!

None of the others I have (Hiarcs 8, Shredder 7, Fritz 8) chose this.

Also, in a transposition to a Benko gambit, it played (as White) 7. Rg1; 8.
Qd3; then, 13. Kd2-- again, I doubt the others would choose this path,
especially 7. Rg1!

Yesterday, I knocked it out of book in an English vs. Dutch opening, and
about move 7 or 8, it played (after a previous Be6) the unusual Bg8!

This is one slick opponent! The others will be "in storage" on my PC as
long as J8 is around!

Is it Junior 8 or are you talking about Deep Junior 8?

It's Junior 8 --- why do you ask?


Because there are two versions of Junior out there.


Is there any difference running them on a normal PC?

I assumed Deep Junior 8 was designed to use parallel processing, so that Junior
8 would be best on an ordinary PC
