For nearly 20 years HIARCS has been among the very best chess programs in the world. Ever since its first World Championship success in 1991 HIARCS has maintained its position as one of the world’s premier chess playing programs. As recently as December 2007 HIARCS further enhanced its reputation by winning the International Paderborn Computer Chess Championship in Germany ahead of a world class field.
HIARCS is famous for its human-like playing style and its ability to come up with the unexpected.
Recent HIARCS versions are renowned for sharp attacking chess and a never say die attitude to their
play. In HIARCS 12 this playing style has been positively enhanced through a new deeper search
and evaluation of dynamic possibilities. It is capable of building deep attacking positions against the
enemy king and executing exciting mating attacks. This new approach enables HIARCS to play interesting,
distinctive aggressive chess while being sensitive to the needs of the position.
This has improved HIARCS in all phases of the game and even in quieter positions HIARCS 12 is able
to be more selective about the variations it explores to achieve a better understanding than previous
versions leading to much stronger play.
As an analysis partner 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 HIARCS into a
greater understanding of chess positions and their
possibilities than ever before.
For many years top chess players have used HIARCS
as an important analysis partner for this very reason.
This combination of strength, playing style and learning
makes HIARCS 12 ideal for all players looking for
an intelligent chess partner that learns and improves
A new super strong Deep HIARCS 12 openings book is also
included which has been dramatically enhanced with
the latest cutting edge chess theory and a wealth of
novelties to provide a huge repertoire of finely tuned
