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.
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.
