Lost end-game

Post by xr_a_y » Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:58 pm

In its recent TCEC game versus Fritz, Minic lost this end-game

[d] 6k1/3n1pp1/7p/B7/3N4/b3P2P/4KPP1/8 b - - 0 31

What is your opinion about this end-game, is it lost or a draw is still possible ?

here is the full game :

This _should_ be a draw. But all depends. Playing a move like 39...g5 is defnitively asking for trouble. Common wisdom is, to stay quiet and trade as much pawns as possible, therefore 39...h5 is normally the move, followed by g6.
Analyze it with a high class engine, it will give you answers quickly. So i think Minic mishandled it.

The right engine may find a win

6k1/3n1pp1/7p/B7/3N4/b3P2P/4KPP1/8 b - - 0 31

A two headed Fat Fritz with dual 2060 RTX Super , probably averaging 60K nps against the latest dev-Honey doing in excess of 100M nps. Honey actually saw the sure loss before FF saw the clear win. 5 min with 3 sec inc

colors reversed, but what a disconnect in the scores from move 7 on...



I see no sign that it is draw...
