This is more of a puzzle. As far as I can ascertain, Gnu-Chess Easy always plays the same, and so the question is, is what are the least amount of moves required to beat Gnu Chess on easy. Just to clarify; you are playing as black, Gnu Chess is playing as white.

    Does it play with the same strength (making the same moves) on all hardware? – Dag Oskar Madsen Jul 3 '14 at 12:30

    A 2006 core 2 duo laptop and a 2013 intel i5 laptop both play exactly the same. – Akiva Jul 3 '14 at 19:58
  • White played only one move... You can't refute a correct opening ( this one is correct one, though unambitious ) with a series of forced moves. If I would have to try, I would respond with 1...d5. – AlwaysLearningNewStuff Jul 11 '14 at 15:37
  • @AlwaysLearningNewStuff Thank you for your comment. I am afraid you misunderstand; We are talking about a chess engine which on easy, always starts this way, and always plays the same thereafter. If you say, find a way to beat this engine in 60 moves, you can use that method on any other computer with this chess engine to beat him using the same 60 moves. I hope this clarified the puzzle for you. – Akiva Jul 12 '14 at 5:34
  • So, if I play 1...d5 it will respond the same on every computer? What about following moves? Does it play other 10+ moves the same on every computer? If so then there might be a way to solve this... – AlwaysLearningNewStuff Jul 12 '14 at 11:42
