Chessmaster DS Match Final Game

Filed under: Gaming — Tags: , — Zurahn @ 8:29 pm

Game 13 appropriately closes out the match. I’ve annotated the game, which you can see when viewing the game.

Game 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
Zurahn ½ 1 1 0 0 ½ ½ 1 ½ 1 ½ 1 1 6
Chessmaster DS ½ 0 0 1 1 ½ ½ 0 ½ 0 ½ 0 0 2

The end tally had me finishing with a score of +6 -2 =5 for classical point tally of 8&#189 to Chessmaster DS’ 4&#189, and with the match to six wins, a score of 6 – 2 in decisive games. More interesting though, for me at least, are the performances by colour.

As black, I had 4 wins to only 1 loss and 1 draw, as compared to white with 2 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss. Why that is, I can’t really say. Maybe just a demonstration of why 1. Nc3 is generally a poor opening choice.
