I just beat the Hard mode ID205 right now. I know the website time control gives it a handicap but I'm still happy anyway :)

What's interesting is that she refrained from 25...Rxb3 in view to my tactics 26.Nxg6 followed by 25.Qc2 with double attack. In fact she defended from my threat by playing 25...Kh7 instead. I know it's just a shallow tactics but considering that Hard mode is just 400 nodes means her tactical sense is getting better.

Congrats ! And a nice win above that.

I have beaten Hard mode again at ID213 with king side attack. The lowering from 2000 nodes to 400 really hurt the strength of Hard mode level.. nevertheless it's more fun! :P

What else?
I can not aspire to win a game against a plus 2300 player.

Tell us the truth, you were able to hold a draw against Leela because you
cheated and used your engine Moron v1.0 on your smartphone.

:lol:

Beat ID 231 today on easy after a couple of tries. It rushed to an unsound rook trade in a QGA and ended up dropping the queen side.

You are clearly stronger than me then. Congrats...if that serves for anything.
