Chessmaster DS Match Games 7 & 8

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Zurahn @ 8:28 pm

I scaled back and starting playing more safely following the two losses, and resulted in two relatively uninteresting draws. This wasn’t particularly surprising in game 7 given I played the Scotch Game opening, which is very drawish. With game 8, though, a win was required to keep the pattern going, and opening preparation worked its charm for a win in the Leningrad-Dutch.

Game 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Zurahn ½ 1 1 0 0 ½ ½ 1
Chessmaster DS ½ 0 0 1 1 ½ ½ 0

On my side, game 8 takes best play thusfar. Chessmaster wasn’t really up to par in the game, but I didn’t miss my opportunities, which I had in prior games. It’s also perhaps the most interesting game as well, showing both the engine’s weakness in a position not ripe for tactics as well as a nice sac to finish the game.
