Oct-25-04  Knight13: 9. Kf1 is little uncomfortalbe, trapping the rook on h1. 9. O-O is better. 17. Rxg7+ is kind of forced and no other moves can be made because it is trapped on h1 for no good. I think it tradded off for that reason.

COMP Freedom plays terrible!

Mar-07-06  Appaz: Looks like the computers opening book was two moves deep in 1974!

The names seems wrong: Freedom <is> chaos, and each rule takes you closer to tyranny :)

Jan-25-07  Manequinho: 9. Kf1 happens with me when I'm playing bullet games at I try to castle, but the mouse makes me blunder!
Jan-28-07  GrandPatzerSCL: This play is sickening!! Computers?? OOOO 1974!! LOLZ!! I think my toaster could have created more Chaos than that..

  HFlew: Oh man, this game is awesome. Everything about it!

The names of the players.

The moves. (9. Kf1!)

The threat of repetition!

Then finally, the resignation (what happened, did Freedom crash?!)

Feb-03-08  staplerman: Well, Chaos is an appropriate name for the game at any rate...
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: what surprise me is a computer resigning. Or did he run out of time?
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: 9 Kf1 is puzzling
Jun-16-09  Moses2792796: 9. Kf1 is hilarious
Jun-16-09  PhilFeeley: Who needs puns when you've got names like these? Chaos wins over Freedom - 'twas ever thus, it seems...
Jun-16-09  cuendillar: <Manequinho> That might be the case here too - after all, someone must move the pieces for the computer. I'm not sure engines back then had compatible interfaces for playing each other directly.

If so, it's almost more amusing than if it actually though it best...

Jul-24-09  I Like Fish: chaos...
give freedom...
a chance...
to get even...

  keypusher: Trying to remember what I read about early programs...I think Kf1 was played because it increased the total mobility of the white pieces to the program's way of thinking. It opened e1 to the queen, while 0-0 would have left the rook free to move to only one square, as is also the case after Kf1.

  OhioChessFan: I was messing around with Opening Explorer and saw this was the only 3. c5 game. I wonder if Freedom was on to something, and just messed it up with Kf1.
May-22-10  Chessychess2010: Freedom meant the rook sacrifice at g7 to win black's queen after Bishop sacrifice with Ba6+ !

Rather risky way to setup trap along open g-file but with Rxg7, both King ended up being exposed. So, that could explain Freedom's plan of attack. White simply lost out when its Rook sacrifice backfired as it wasted eventually without compensation.

Seems to me, Freedom computer is abit cranky in its thought processes to end up losing in only 29 moves. More like a club player tryng to live it up with a CM titled player.

  Domdaniel: <Ohio> Yeah, this game jumps out at you in Opening Explorer, doesn't it? Freedom beaten by Chaos - in a Nimzo-Indian. Ah, the irony, the irony.

Now all I need is a game where Hubris is clobbered by Nemesis.

I'd hate to be the player chosen to face the choice of Scylla or Charybdis as an opponent.

One might call that an utterly Sisyphean task.

  whiteshark: Our liberty's under attack

Our freedom is starting to crack

At tyranny's rise

A proud nation dies

And rights begin fading to black

We should be so lucky!

Aug-22-14  Ke2: I guess they couldn't accurately calculate the 4 plys of 7.nb5, followed by bd2, nxc7, nxa8. That's an extreme example of the "horizon effect"
