My New Blog

I've decided to write another blog on Poker, Guitar and Computer games. Its called Guitarist Gamer if you want to check it out. :) I started playing poker this year after playing a computer game on steam. I've also added a link to my new blog in my favorite sites. At the bottom of the page.

Chess Engines.

Fritz 13 and Rybka 4 were released last year. No sign of a new Chessmaster though. It seems unlikely that Ubisoft will continue with the franchise. I personally won't be buying the new engines. I already have Fritz 12 and Rybka 3. I don't really know why I have them. I suspect they aren't very beneficial to a weak player like me. I do analyse my games with Rykba 3 sometimes. But I really should be analysing them myself. Its a pity about Chessmaster. If only Ubisoft could sort out its legal trouble in Europe with Rocksmith then maybe I could play that instead. :)
