Tal lives again!

Freakin' bazooka, those are some attacking games. Does it do that with black as well?

If it does and it has a strength adjustment, this could become my favorite engine to play against. I love engines that create sharp games and sometimes even make somewhat unsound, but interesting moves.
I have not scanned the games. Both games were in progress when I checked. I will look for a game when Romi was black.
I could not look through all the games because I have to get back to doing some work. There were quite a few games like this one though.

In an interview during her match with Yace Romi was asked, "why are you making so many questionable sacrifices". Romi, "because I can". Romi only drew both games after coming very close to winning them.

The final results of this match may decide if new Romi will be released.
If you don't release it you'd better stay at home even after the COVID is over.
:lol:

It does look ripe for release, Mike! Thanks in advance! :D
Well I thought about changing ID with a corpse and in the future releasing new versions under the name Chromises and no one would ever be the wiser! :P
Yeah, but Chromises can keep no promises... :P
"because I can"
Now that's a great answer by an engine. :lol:

RomiChess is an old Winboard engine. So sorry, but no is the answer. However, Romi takes chances and can be beat by lower rated engines and lower rated people. But probably not by a beginner.
