I am staggered anyone thinks Alpha Zero would get over 60%

It will not lose. It learned Super GM chess in only 4 hrs. This is not a chess program, it is a learning, cognitive, neural net.

Ted, Max is playing as expected, a novice well below a 1000. He tossed his Night early in the opening then his Rook a few moves later.

Karjakin Wins FIDE Candidates Tournament 2016!




Rxd5!!

It's not hard, but 37. Rxd5!! is a nice stroke. Taking or declining the sac is lethal.

I didn't follow this tournament. Karjakin wi ...

Qe6. Took me two minutes so I would not have seen it in a real game when in time trouble. Also then you get no hint that it is a mate in three.

Same here LOL. Laughing

It's really a very simple mate. based on the 2 Bishop smothered mate theme but my old brain felt rushed to answer..mistake!

I needed to put more time looking at the Bc6 li ...

White to move.

That was the second line I looked at. On the third line I explored, I knew I had right away but it is a bit more 'Forcing'. Wink

Yes, there is no question at all. Firstly white gets 2 important pawn for a bishop, and gets a ruinous attack. White has a pawn on e5 to hamper defence.
