And thus ends the most predictable game in the history of chess...
@Irontiger: Thanks for the fun and the insight how the different engines work!
Well, I am not so sure if white easily wins that. It would be a loong looong struggle. :)
I´m happy to have been the first to post the last winning move for computer team
Good effort Tigre de Hierro
Oh, do we now say IronTiger in another language? Ok then... Σιδερένια Τίγρη.
Just shows how friggin good Engines are.Even a 2000 rated player couldn't convert a winning position on move 2.
I'm not sure that any human, past or present (but maybe future), could beat a strong computer program after 1. e4 f5.
In addition, I suppose that a ten-game match from this position between two equally-matched and reasonably strong opponents, may possibly end around 6.5-3.5, or 6-4, but not more than that.
White is a pawn up and black's king is slightly compromised, but the pawn on f5 in case white takes, will be weak and doubled, and will have deviated from the center. The advantage may only be mild at this point (maybe titled players would see it differently)
Those "me vs. engine" games are pretty interesting. I'd wonder if I were good enough to make such a challenge and last more that 25 moves. :)
If you are counting "until checkmate", it is rather easy to last at least 30 moves. Losing a piece at move 10 to exchange the queens would be a good idea !
If we are counting "until obviously lost position", it is another matter.
I think good human players could win against the computer in those conditions. (and yes, I know that's quite a leap of faith to still believe that despite the computers having used my corpse to mop the floor recently)
Yes, I meant obviously lost position (down on material and no attacking chances). Otherwise I'm sure you'd've last more than 30. :)
