I looked again the game in which AlphaZero sacrifices a knight on h6.
I donít believe this is brute force calculation so it makes what AlphaZero did even more impressive!


Well, the other option, Ng4 Bg4!(but not f5, which might still leave white winning) Qg4 f5, simplifies into an endgame that is relatively easy to calculate.
So maybe it just decided to take a risk.
Also, its king shelter/safety might be very well tuned.

Is there a certainty this position is won with perfect play, I don't have the time to check now?

What I agree is that this game is great, as well as the one with the d4-e5-f6 long chain vs minor piece, and one more, with such games, we have had some early indications how much deeper and more beautiful chess can be.
But actually, my games vs the top engines are even deeper and more extravagant.

So that, a lot in store for us, I am able to recognise the merits of the match what concerns deeper play, though I can not endorse the conditions in any way.
