As to the puzzle, the "Solution" didn't seem to make a whole lot of sense considering there were multiple moves that could have been played to gain an advantage.

Yereslov, maybe you should focus on taking people's advice rather than just insulting them, listen to people and you'll find they've given you something, if nothing more than just something to chew on.

Really? There were multiple moves?

I already checked them out, hence why the options are limited.

Here, give me a variation. I will give you the refutation.

At least he's not arguing about being better than a master anymore.

OK, now that this is a serious challenge (I will give you the refutation) I will ask you to do just that.

In your post #8, you stopped a line in the middle of a forcing variation (A check even!): in calculation, we never do that if we can avoid it.

I don't see a win at all for white after 35.Rxh7+. I certainly wouldn't resign against any level of player in this position.

So please continue this variation. Let's say black plays not 35...Kc8? Now keep going. How is this winning at all for white?

Here's the catch. I want to know exactly how you find each move in the variation in plain english, and I want to know exactly why white is better and by approximately how much. I want you to do what you said you would: "I will give you the refutation".-Yaro, not Houdini (cause he can't talk). No numbers and each move needs to be explained unless it's blatantly obvious or forced or something from the perspective of a 1200, player, not a 3000+ machine.

This is a totally serious request, because in all honesty I see (maybe you see different) that white is better for a reason (you tell me yours though) but I would keep playing on. I'm a resign mongrel, so that's saying something.

Not here to insult you (although you so deserve it!!), as this is a real challenge.

Also, you asked for a good game from pfren? -----------

Just look at his "best win" on corr chess. A Danish Gambit thematic. Pfren skillfully reduces his opponent's activity and remains a pawn up, later winning the game. Much better than any game you've played for sure, and all that you've posted so far.

BTW. I almost thought the "rook sac" was something really special, but it turns out it was a simple tactic forcing checkmate for vast wins of material; how is that a sacrifice if you win the king in 2 or 3 moves?!

For a REAL piece sacrifice, my world open game that I posted is a perfect example.

One final thing. I bet you are going to say than pfren's game was nothing.

In that case, YOU give some variations and explanations as well as improvements to his play. No numbers of course, no long lines, no houdini nor any other chess engines. Just tell us improvements that you could have found and why they are better etc... in English of course... or Chinese (if you know it).

good luck getting a decent response from yerslov, crtexxx.

Do you think you're houdini yereslov?

His ability to squiggle out of being held to answer for his numb comments while being tied down to a lame rating is way beyond the skills of a mere Houdini!

Is both really.

There is nothing wrong with the puzzle, so I don't get the comments. No one has posted a refutation, so I can only assume the responders are trolls.

Show me an alternate move, besides Rg8 which I already refuted.

So you want flawed analysis as a refutation?

That sounds extremely silly, since you will reply with another flawed human-made refutation and the cycle will continue.

I distrust the engine often, but when it gives white 1.30+ in a position it's not likely to be a draw

And there is the long-awaited post where the world's greatest troll calls everyone else a troll. I thought someone of your vast cerebral capacity would just pick up on what I meant. I thought wrong.

Houdini easily found the win in all lines besides this one.

some more than others

All right, I am not going to insult you, although it is more than deserved and only too easy.

Just do the challenge that I sent you! Quit stalling lol...

And here's the REALLY funny part: According to you, after the moves 1.e4 e5 the game is a "draw", since H's evaluation is a "draw" range. This is completely ridiculous, but it is by your logic that whatever houdini says goes, since "humans suck at chess".

1.e4 e5...

Yer: I offer a draw...

Black: no!!

Yer: You must be a really bad player. Houdini says that I have the advantage: +(insert whatever H's evaluation is)

...rofl!

Are you that dense?

1. e4 e5 does not give either side a huge advantage.

There is no first-move opening that gives either player a huge advantage.

On the other hand, being a pawn up is an almost guaranteed win.

Savage, just because you lost the argument doesn't meant that you have the right to troll my thread.

Houdini gives white 1.30+. "You should get a better engine then." -Yereslov

How can you seriously argue against that?

exactly! With your logic, since there is no advantage at the start of the game by Houdini: THE GAME MUST BE A DRAW!!!

So why not draw on move 1 lol!
