Houdini's Pawn Storm
This is a rapid time control game of 25 minutes with a 10 second increment between the engines Naum 4.6 and Houdini 200716. This was from Season 9 of the TCEC (Top Chess Engine Championship) in 2016. Understanding the play of two top engines is sometimes very difficult, however with this game it flows natural enough. Naum 4.6 plays a Queen pawn opening without a contributing c-pawn. How would the Houdini chess engine address white's somewhat passive approach to the opening? Observe the calm before the pawn storm in this aesthetic chess engine battle.
