If you aren't watching the chess.com/cccc -- it has officially become a YOU problem!  This week the legend of Leela grew further after another highly interesting, very human performance in her game vs Nirvana. While I admit I only began tuning into twitch.tv/computerchess for the "background work music"  -- as I began accidentally learning things the idea of launching this new blog/vlog series hit me -- and I hope it's something I can keep doing for a while.

I worked hard on this analysis for all of you, and I hope you find the notations below and video above instructive, or at least, not a total waste of your time!

PS -- I really appreciate the community that follows these "Chess AI Matches" so closely. A big thank you to everyone in those chat rooms for being so welcoming, patient and understanding of this "Newb" and his questions about what makes each of these machines so unique in their approach to the game. 

Peace.
