Chessmaster DS Match Games 9 & 10

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

Games 9 & 10 brought a lot more excitement than prior recent games. Game 9 I tried the Giuoco Piano to fair success, gaining the advantage but squandering the opportunity. Game 10 proved the opposite; I had given up the positional advantage in favour of heavy pressure in the hopes of later overwhelming the engine.

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

It almost seems as though I’m better off matching tactics against Chessmaster DS than to fight a positional battle. With 4 wins now, the next two games could potentially finish things off.
