Beating Mittens on Chess.com
Mittens may look like a cute baby cat, but don’t let her fool you! Mittens is a fierce chess opponent who should not be underestimated. It may say (1) next to her name, but this is just an attempt to fool you into thinking she is weak. In fact, her actual Elo rating is random and can hit 3300! This means Mittens is actually pretty formidable.
Mittens is so hard to beat that some of the best Chess.com streamers, such as Gothamchess, Hikaru, and Eric Rosen, have found it near impossible. Beating Mittens without time control is supremely hard, because Mittens has then got all the time she needs to work out her moves.
The only way some people have found possible to beat Mittens is to use strict time controls, because Mittens’ AI is so slow to make a move. So if you are looking to gain 3 Crowns against Mittens, then you need to be sure you can beat her with no time restraints.
