Default GetClub - what the frick ?!?

Hi,

i am new to chess in general and to this newsgroup in particular.
I have noticed that most conversation concerns this GetClub engine /
site, which seems (according to some posts) to be in an experimental
state but already charges money for usage.

So, my question is, what is so special about it?
if i want a human player i usually play on fics, if i want an adjustable
computer opponent, i play fritz. And an advantage: both options are
free. Whereas GetClub costs money.

So, concerning GetClub: should i and if so, why should i bother?

Greetings,
Tobias

Its author is *very* persistent. The engine and the site are
gut-wrenchingly awful; either the author has no grip on reality or
he's just trying to drive traffic to his site. Or both.

Well, Fritz isn't free but it doesn't cost per-game.


So, concerning GetClub: should i and if so, why should i bother?


You shouldn't.


Dave.

Yes GetClub is a new Program So many people tried it when it was a
very weak. But now, it challenges everone to its limits.

If you are a good player you can earn Prizees every month. So you can
get many more new games for free.

Things that you will like at GetClub Chess.

1. Your games are Recorded So all games can be analyzed by experts
with animation.
2. You get Ratings depending on number of games you win. Its very hard
to come in top 10.
3. You can play unlimited games forever at GetClub. Only Higher Levels
are limited.
4. Its free to Join and play as many games you want. Beginner Level is
always free.
5. You can improve your game. And get 5 Levels to play with as per
your Skills.
6. No downloads needed. Just play from your accont from any Computer
Online.

So, my question is, what is so special about it?


See above.

if i want a human player i usually play on fics, if i want an adjustable
computer opponent, i play fritz. And an advantage: both options are

Only Higher Levels Cost money. You can play with a decent Beginner
Level Unlimited times. And you get Prizes every month so getrting new
games for free is not difficult.

You are already bothered. So thats good. Now join and play a few games
then tell everyone how much you liked GetClub.

Other players playing daily are praising GetClub a lot. It plays very
strong moves., So it will be very difficult for you to win higher
levels.

Have a Match between Fritz and GetClub and let us know who is the
winner.

Have a good day and enjoy Chess at GetClub.

Bye
Sanny

You can get Fritz 5.32 (and maybe later versions?) for free.

You can get Rybka, an indisputably better program when compared to
GetClub, for free.

I agree. Why would anyone play GetClub?

One has to assume for the entertainment value Sanny's idiocy provides.

Although I gave up on him a long time ago.
