A recent thing going on has been forum games. This is chess.com vs Houdini! Chess.com will get white. Everyone discuss and vote on the move, and when you all decide what to play, at 8:00 AM Pacific voting ends. I will turn on Houdini and give you his move at 9 AM Pacific, obe hour later, that day, and it will be your turn again. I will keep track of the moves and vote count on this post. Please put your final votes in red so I can put it here. ANY VOTES THAT ARE NOT RED WILL BE COUNTED AS ANALYSIS/KIBITZING/SPAM. Official announcments/moves by Houdini will be announced in purple. Let's see if you can beat him! (No engines please) NOTE: Houdini will not be using an opening book, pure analysis only
Moves so far: 1.e4 c5 2.c3 e6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.d4 d5 5.e5 Nge7 6.Bd3 Bd7 7.0-0 Ng6 8.Re1 Be7 9.Nbd2 cxd4 10.cxd4 Qb6 11.Nb3 a5 12.a4 h6 13.Bd2 0-0 14.Rc1 Rfd8 15.Bb5 Nb4 16.Bxd7 Rxd7 17.Re3 Rc7
Chess.com should make a vote chess game for this. BTW I vote d4!
I actually made a group for houdini to play vote chess against other groups. But i cant get an official chess.com match, so I made a forum game.
I will keep track of the votes
e4 lets go
i edited the rules a bit please put kibitzing in black and your final vote in red so I can see what to count up better
@deacon all you have to do is kibitz/vote in this forum!
there isn't an officail board, but after houdini's every move I will post a board with the current position
I'm Im sure other kibitzers will post boards with some analysis :)
I also vote e4!
I am counting all votes right now, but seriously guys it would be a lot easier on me if you put votes in red and analysis in black
f3 guys really? lol
Houdini has a vast opening book based on solid principles; I'd like to see how it handles the atypical positions that arise from irregular openings. I do believe 1.f3 is our only chance to win.
actually i forgot to say Houdini is using no opening book he is analyzing from move 1
is it fair to say chess.com votes 1e4?
Abolutely not! d4 needs more votes. How about the votes are totaled and the move is made after 12 hours?
