Deep Hiarcs 13
Chess Playing Software
The Ultimate Multi-Core/Multi-Processors Version
Deep Hiarcs is famous for its unique human-like playing style and is renowned for playing sharp attacking chess and having the ability to find the unexpected move or variation that is so useful when looking for novelties and new possibilities in a position. Deep Hiarcs 13.2 has enhanced that much loved playing style through a deeper search and a more accurate positional evaluation. It is even more capable of building deep attacking positions against the enemy king and executing exciting mating attacks in a very un-computer like manner. This enables Deep Hiarcs to play interesting, distinctive aggressive chess while being sensitive to the needs of the position. This has improved Deep Hiarcs in all phases of the game and even in quieter positions Deep Hiarcs 13.2 is able to be more selective about the variations it explores to reach deeper to achieve a better understanding than previous versions leading to much stronger play (100 ELO points stronger than Deep Hiarcs 12).
As an analysis partner Deep Hiarcs is second to none with its ability to learn from the positions it analyses and plays. This is an essential feature for all chess players interested in analysing games, studies, positions and particularly the opening as it guides Deep Hiarcs into a greater understanding of chess positions and their possibilities than ever before. For many years top chess players including World Champions have used Deep Hiarcs as an important analysis partner for this very reason.
This combination of strength, playing style and learning makes Deep Hiarcs 13.2 ideal for all players looking for an intelligent chess partner that learns and improves with you. A new Hiarcs openings book is also included which has been enhanced with many improvements over Hiarcs 12 and is an excellent appitizer for the outstanding Hiarcs 13 Pro opening book which is available separately. For engine collectors both Deep Hiarcs 13.1 and Deep Hiarcs 13.2 are included in the package.

Hiarcs still not plaing handicap mode at the right rating levels.

Having had Hiarcs in the past and even complained to the author that Hiarcs does not play even close to the rating you set it to I was disappointed to find this new version is no better. By this I mean it always plays much higher than the rating you set it to. For other things I like Hiarcs fine. It is good at analysis and tends to find more human looking moves. But I buy chess programs to play and being a class player I want one that plays more like the people at the club. So far none of them do this well.
