You'll regret saying that if in a few days time you find that he's conducted a thorough analysis and posted the reply "good game."

Oct-16-04  Knight13: <maoam> Yep. I can't analyze every game in every time. Sometimes, like this game, I need time to study. Something wrong with it, <maoam>?

<Something wrong with it, <maoam>?>

I was going to waste my time and answer that question, but then I read your profile page:

"People who likes to have wars are people who wants to die."

May-12-05  soberknight: What inspired Diep to play 72 a5? As far as I can see, he gets diddly dink for the pawn.

  WannaBe: <soberknight> Maybe one of the Diep switch was set incorrectly?
May-12-05  soberknight: <WannaBe> What does that mean? I think computers evaluate a position based on a number of factors. Everything else being equal, a computer would prefer to have a pawn rather than not have it. How would a switch set incorrectly change that?

  WannaBe: <soberknight> It was a pun, Dip switches.

  WannaBe: Just in case, here is a site... (I work in
the computer business. Sometimes my sense
humor goes too deep/geek/nerd for some people.)

May-12-05  soberknight: omg, I got out-punned!
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: Crafty got crafty and Diep fell for Crafty's crafty trick!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Better to be punned than pinned!
Apr-07-11  Gouvaneur: What a boring game. I don't like Computer Chess at all.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: I thought it was quite a fascinating struggle. black kept control of the 6th rank then slowly gains space and got files then slowly induces weaknesses. Converts advantages to a nice win. Worthy of great players such as - inter alia - Capablanca, Tarrasch, or Alekhine or even Fischer...
Apr-08-11  adbat: good game, reminds me more from Petrosian and Karpov.
