If you want to test your theory about the computer resitance of this variant: <p> You can download a version of Sjaak II + WinBoard configured to play Sac Chess from <a href="http://hgm.nubati.net/SacChess.zip">http://hgm.nubati.net/SacChess.zip</a>. Just download and unzip it, and double-click the WinBoard icon (the black Knight) in the folder, and it should start up a Sac Chess game as black (so you can start playing white). If you want the computer to play white, click the Mode -> Machine White menu. You might want to give yourself more time through the Options -> Time Control menu. You can also watch Sjaak II play Sac Chess games against itself by clicking the Mode -> Two Machines menu. <p> Have fun!
