Game # 11: To Infinity and Beyond!
Feb 19, 2011, 8:55 AM 1
Something I find fascinating about irrational numbers like Pi and Phi is that they represent an unlimited supply of creativity on demand. Using computers humans have calculated Pi to more than 3 billion decimal places and have never found a pattern. This means your that at any moment our computers can on demand produce a creative string of numbers based on the next unknown sequence. This kind of observable robustness of irrationality goes a long way toward my personal belief that the universe is infinite.
This time I'm playing the black side of the Modern Defense: Queen Pawn Fianchetto. Early I go for the double fiachetto allowing myself to be herded into very cramped quarters. Through careful play and managing a threatened mate I am able to prove a decisive advantage and my opponent resigns.
