Puzzle Black to move ... and Win!
Whoa, it's deja vu all over again!
hint --break down wall
Considering that White has voluntarily immolated his rook...who really cares?
59. .... b6 looks obvious. Black will effectively playing two Rooks versus one (one White Rook being trapped on g5).
p.s. 59. ... b5 ia also a possibility. Some calculation is required, after all.
Well, it's either that or ... b5 (lol)
Where can you buy a slominski jerry engine? The houdini is easy to find, but this one...
Still, might be worth the effort (at least the Slominski keeps its rooks free).
And you can get a Slominski there?
rxr,pxr,ra8--pick off b.p and a/b pawn push?
Even strongest computers have a hard time here understanding ???/ Comp rb1b3 eval 0.27 try set it up on you own pc !! at 3000 level declares dead draw HUMAN WON HANDILY !
I don't believe for a second that a 2200 computer could entomb a rook like that. Hell, even a 1200 would have a hard time coming up with that genius plan.
11. g3? Are you sure Houdini did that?
`this was actual game -comical but logical by computer design
The combination of the two produces a game with both tactical and strategic (positional) flaws.
The following table shows the estimated Elo of Houdini at reduced Strength levels. It is based on the feed-back of several users:
Strength 0 => 1200 EloStrength 10 => 1500 EloStrength 20 => 1800 EloStrength 30 => 2000 EloStrength 50 => 2300 Elo
The strength reduction is mostly based on a combination of two techniques:-protocol compliant version of Strength parameter.
What is the highest strength level that you can consistently beat?
UCI-protocol compliant version of Strength parameter.
Default 3000, min 1200, max 3000.
Internally the UCI_Elo value will be converted to a Strength value according to the table given above.
The UCI_Elo feature is controlled by the chess GUI, and usually doesn't appear in the configuration window.
Activate the strength limit specified in the UCI_Elo parameter.

Wow, that sounded really scientific.
