Probably a blunder. Black seems hopeless at this point being down a piece so they resigned.

  whiteshark: The game The Baron-Pandix was decided by <the user interface <that was connected to the Pandix program.>> The precise error is a topic of research for Gyula Horvath but what happened in the is not worth an extensive discussion since on move 10 it placed its knight en prise and the Baron replied with thank you: <11. Bxa5.>

Nov-26-11  mrbasso: <Probably a blunder> A computer does not make one move blunders.
There is a line that goes:
7.Bd2 Bxd2+ 8.Nxbd2 d5 9.exd5 Nd5 10.Qb3 Na5
That should be the explanation.

Even though I'm a beginner, I think computers to make one move blunders. For example, would you please explain me why white played 74.Rc5+ in Deep Junior vs Deep Fritz, 2001.

Nov-26-11  mrbasso: <would you please explain me why white played 74.Rc5+> Sure! White found a won tablebase endgame
after 74...Kxd4. That is a mate in xx moves which is for the computer always better than a huge material advantage.

Ok?

Nov-27-11  Marmot PFL: This was Pandax only loss of the tournament. Maybe it just needed some time off from chess to recharge the batteries.

Oh yeah, it does: P Lafuente vs Shredder, 2005, see Shredder's move 19

<whiteshark> thanks..

Dec-04-11  dumbgai: Things like this happen due to programming bugs. Deep Thought (the predecessor to Deep Blue) once walked into a mate-in-one in a tournament game because the programmers made an error in the code for certain types of mates.
Dec-04-11  fndmiranda: This is probably a bug in some bitboard structure. It's VER VERY HARD to program a strong engine.

  tpstar: 7. Nbd2!? is new to the database Opening Explorer and doesn't make much sense as Black wins a Pawn with 7 ... Nxe4.

Chess is hard, even for computers, but such a miniature is very surprising at this level on both ends.
