PGNs Wanted- Author vs Creation

Post by the_real_greco » Tue Mar 24, 2020 4:51 am

Hi everyone!

I collect, and occasionally blog about, games authors play (read: lose) against their own engines.

A few months back I hounded a bunch of people about it, and got a few: https://www.chess.com/blog/the_real_gre ... parts-i-ii

I figured I'd cast a wider net by posting here (and also, I'm pretty sure AGE is sick of me asking him about this directly).

Anyone have any to share?

I guess that for everyone except Berliner and perhaps Chris and Vincent and Miguel on older hardware, you will just see an exhibition of baby seals being clubbed to death by a mob of angry Canadians.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

That's the idea, yes. Except in this case the seals are clubbing themselves.

Also, these don't need to be long- something like 3|0 is basically the same as classical, in this scenario.
