Windows Reversi - playing online against an algorithm?
Can somebody please explain to me, why the opponents in the game of Reversi in Windows XP are almost always Greek beginners, German Intermediates or English experts? To me, they seem to be computer algorithms. If I am right, I see two possible explanations: 1) There are not enough Windows users to support online games like this. 2) Humans don't behave according to Microsoft quality standards. I tried to Google this, but didn't find a good explanation. If somebody knows the Greek guy, please tell him that there are books out there that can help him improve.
