What does your engine like here?

Post by AdminX » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:15 pm

So I am currently playing a LTC match between Deep Junior Yokohama and Spike 1.4 where this position occurred on the board.



To my surprise after a few minutes of thought Junior decided on the move g4.

Some output from my laptop:

As a human I would play:
g3 followed by Kg2 followed by Rooks to the Q-side followed by minority attack.

Lc0 pretty much goes for this.

But g4 is reasonable here I would say

Both Komodo & Stockfish would as well play g3. As a human, lately I've been looking for surprising and creative moves. Of course taking a hit on the clock however and sometimes finding myself with the winning position but a lost on time. Thank god that doesn't happen to often. :lol:
