I like Be3.
Chess.com... after white plays bxd6, houdini takes the bishop.. and white plays Qd3.. then white will inevitably be up in material.. and will perhaps have a better position. Chess.com ftw!!!
Bxg6 fxg6 qd3 kf7 and black's better because we've just given up our important light-squared bishop for nothing. I vote Bd2
This is an interesting match...
K, white is not inevitably up in material after it trades the bishop and threatens..
still like white's position- though it is indeed an interesting match
I think after us playing a4 black is at least equal.
@CS007: I think it would be interesting to see the Houdini evals after each move.
a division here. I like Be3 better, but it looks like Bd2 wins
#browni I'll put the eval in the original post after each move, I do remember Houdini saying he has a slight advantage, but much less than a pawn so its stilll pretty much equal
very cool concept btw, I'm curious where the game will go,
Be3Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
h6 by Houdini is a bad move in my opinion, for a couple of reasons. It doesn't do very much and it weakens the kingside, especially since we can now at any time play Bxg6. This isn't a good move right away though. I'm still afraid we don't stand much of a chance without organization.
HOUDINI PLAYS 0-0
Rc1 seems like a logical move, it gets my vote as well
Qc2 looks good to me.
aims at g6
It's slightly unclear, we played Bd2? Followed by Houdini 0-0
Assuming this is so, I'm voting Qc2
