I wa sthinking of turning this into a variant form of the game, but will need some rules first:D
I wonder what moves an engine would recommend if you gave it the starting position :P
Wild setup; glad nothing like that could happen in a real game. Fischer and Petrosian played a game once with four queens on the board and that seemed over-the-top complex
I wonder if an engine would even recognize the position as possible since the most queens each side could have is nine
The Motherboard of a Computer Running Houdini vs. This Position 0-1
Black missed a mate on move 21: Qg7xQb2 followed by mate one move later
Not quite, July.
Both the Qc1 and the Qh2 protect b2, so Black's one queen short.
Good catch; missed the white queen on h2. But isn't it still mate a few moves later cause the white queen on a2's pinned?
I don't know, looks like White can defend as quickly as Black can attack, and vice versa.
Yeah, I'd have to set this up on a board but I don't have that many queens
I think Black can win after that; at least it looked that way before the analysis board froze on this iPhone
We could make a new game from that
only Queens and Kings
but it wont work because every game will be a DRAW
Every game would be a draw only if the players were evenly matched. Maybe this position could be analyzed to a draw but who'd remember the analysis?
