  thegoodanarchist: Unbelievable! Chess has so many possibilities, and these two engines found one of the strangest and most wonderful games ever. I didn't think such a game could possibly end up a draw.
May-20-16  Boomie: I second the emotion. One can spend many sleepless nights trying to figure out why certain moves are played here.

White trades 2 pieces for 5 pawns for positional reasons. Anyone who claims they would have found 17. Ng5 is blowing major smoke.

55. R3c6 is an amazing move. If 55...Bxc6?, black's position collapses after Nxg4. I'm not using an engine so there may be an even better continuation. But still, white is down a rook and a piece for 4 pawns after Bxc6 and is winning!

May-20-16  scholes: wow!!
May-20-16  scholes: direct link to game valuation. Houndini found 55 Rc6! at move 48!!
