  ChessDude33: I wonder why Chessmaster played 12. Nxd5
Mar-05-07  SirBruce: This game was played against the Alekhine personality, which likes to try to set up traps for its opponent. Chessmaster went out of the Alekhine book when Larry played 8...Nc6. The book line was:

8.Bb5+ Bd7 9.Bxd7+ Nxd7 10.Nxd5 exd5 ...

Beyond that, the tuning of the GM personalities in Chessmaster are always less than optimal for the engine; tbe main Chessmaster personality is tuned to be the strongest. So that's probably why Chessmaster played 12. Nxd5.

  James Demery: Just once I would like to beat one of the top personalities on Chessmaster just to see what it feels like. I just don`t understand chess well enough I guess.
Mar-05-07  SirBruce: I managed to beat Flohr, after my testing revealed he was one of the weakest GM personalities. Also, Blackburne is supposedly easy to beat up on if you play a positional game. You might try one of those!

  James Demery: Well SirBruce I`m weaker than the weakest GM personality.
