Dec-08-17  pajaste: Demolition in French Advance 5.f4 -variation. I find it a bit funny how black's king is back at e8 at move 37.
Dec-08-17  pajaste: Well, not exactly french advance, games like this -feature should in time show some interesting other demolitions by this e5-thrust that repel the knight from f6.
Dec-08-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: How to beat Stockfish:

Get it into an endgame and wait until it gets bored to death and gives away all its pawns.

Dec-11-17  TheSnear: 9...c4? is a clear mistake at this level. Would have never happened if the AlphaZero team had not taken away the opening book from Stockfish.

Weird, after 15 secs SF gives this:

23. Rb1 Nxd1 24. Rxb6 Nxc3 25. Rxb8 Nxe2 26. Rb1 Nexd4 #dia1

Completely winning for Black.

SF plays 23. Bxb2 (15s) with a small plus for White.

Anyway, it shows how weak these games are.

Jun-11-18  ThirdPawn: <WorstPlayerEver> Looks like I misread Arena's result. It was probably indicating advantage to black, unlike the traditional point of view given in terms of white.
Jun-12-18  WorstPlayerEver: <ThirdPawn>

Okay, I wondered. Haven't studied the game thoroughly, but as I see it now, this is all Alpha Zero output, they just used Stockfish to get publicity.

However, we are certainly looking at the future of chess! :)
