Yes things get strange especially after 54. Re3??! Ka4??! 55. Re5???! a6???! and finally 56. Rd2??? ~lol~ It's clear David is winning early on and the ending is easily won without difficulty (the white rook on 'h3' has no future)...

David's efforts in the 'Hague AEGON 1996 - Mankind vs. Machines' games I think are well documented... Just requires the right source to get this all straightened out...

I bet by contacting Thorsten would be the best bet in getting this score fixed! ;-)

This chess website also shows the insane moves given here 'ChessBase HTML output' //

Hope that helps... :-) - Mal

It's very nice to see all back in perfect working order once again! I'm sure David would have been pleased! :-)

Nov-11-11  Everett: 44..Nh4! And see how the Rh3 is stuck there for the rest of the game.
