Dec-07-17  amateur05: Incredible!
Dec-07-17  posoo: another ULTAMUT smashing for da FORMER king NO MORE CHAMPUNSHIPS for da stookfish,

WELCOME to da NEW ERA OF SMASHING!

Dec-07-17  posoo: LOOK imma put my QUENE over HERE HAHAHAHAH BOOM BOOM rubka-sniffers!
Dec-07-17  rodrigoporto: Skynet, is that you ?!
Dec-07-17  4tmac: 36. Q-K6! very nice .... kodinifish needs more than a minute a move
Dec-08-17  QuantumMechanic: This game is maybe the most incredible of AlphaZero.

Would be enjoyable to see a match of AlphaZero versus World Champion Carlsen assisted by computers like Stockfish and all opening books.

Dec-08-17  scholes: This should had been game of the day. Best game of the match IMHO.
Dec-08-17  Dave12: 36.Qe6 is an amazingly powerful move. The main idea of course is the threat Qe5+. The problem is, that if the queen doesn't move, than Qe5+ Qf6 Rh7+! will do. but Qf6 for example doesn't work either- because of Qe8 Qf8 and we are back in the same problem of Qe5+. So this move puts black in the jam.
Dec-08-17  talwnbe4: Stockfish 6 on a single core processor considers 34.. Rd8 ?? (+-1.8) as a bad mistake in less than a minute.. 34..Re5 as =, (33..Re6! another alternative =)

Don't know what was running here in this match.

The sac 19. Re1 is sound but not a forced win after 19.. Kxh6

Dec-08-17  birimbombum: Yes. Something wrong here. Move 34 is highly suspect...
Dec-08-17  cata008: wow it seems that a0 just seems way deeper than stockfish

1.0 minute analysis by Stockfish 8 v270317

Dec-09-17  talwnbe4: Seems my own version of winboard and stockfish 6 was buggy ! using Arena and Stockfish 8 gave completely different evals and best lines. This 2 minutes with a single Intel core 2, 2.4 Ghz, Stockfish 8 x64 :

34...Re6?? 35.Rd8 Qxd8 36.Qxe6 Qc7 37.Qe3 +- 4.5

34... Re5?? 35. Qh6+ Kf7 36. Rhd1 bxc4
37. Rd8 Re8 38. Qxg5 +-2.5

34.. Rd8 +- 1.5

34.. best line, black is losing, 2 minutes,
best 34.. a6 +-1.2

Dec-10-17  Eatman: For this FM this is the most impressive game by AlphaZero. It is like Tal combined with Karpov.

Deluded Stockfish thinks it is up +1/+2 in mid 20s but Black is quite lost at move 34, so Rd8 is not as strange as it seems.

Try running Stockfish 6/7/8 on your quad core computers for about 10 minutes and enter the suggestions that are supposed to be 0.00.

You will see that 0.00 turns into +2.5+ after the thematic Rd3 is played.

In most lines(such as 34. ... a6/a5) 35. Rd3 is the killer.

Sample line given by poor Stockfish 35. ... Ra7 36. Rf3 Qh8 37. Qg4 Qxh1 and that is lost.

So in effect Alpha Zero is seeing at least 2 ply deeper and also evaluating much better.
