Game 14 - interesting play on queenside, but eventual draw.

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Nov 25, 2017 8:53 pm

GAME 14

An interesting game, where play on the queenside sees both sides eventually create a passed pawn. However, both passers are traded off and the resulting position is another draw. The score is 7.0-7.0 (one win each).

Game 15 - Stockfish neutralises nicely. Draw. 7.5-7.5.

Post by Graham Banks » Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:34 am

GAME 15

After Stockfish dented black's centre pawns with a pseudo-sac, Houdini's ensuing control along the e-file gave no concrete advantage. The queens were exchanged and then a tactical endgame saw almost everything else come off the board, leaving a tablebases draw. An interesting skirmish. The match is still level at 7.5-7.5 (one win each).

Game 16 - late interest in game only leads to repetition.

Post by Graham Banks » Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:43 am

GAME 16

An early impasse was reached, with neither side initially prepared to try anything. Then not long after Stockfish plays 55....c5, Houdini gives up a pawn to create an outside passer. However, there is still nothing in the position for either side and a threefold repetition ends the game. The match score is 8.0-8.0 (one win each).

Game 17 - Stockfish gains a second win in the match.

Post by Graham Banks » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:46 am

GAME 17

Stockfish won a pawn after Houdini got into trouble on the queenside, but converting this into a win was not easy to achieve. However, after Stockfish's central pawn push with 51. e5 , the advantage began to grow, with the white knight proving more useful than the black bishop. Stockfish takes the lead by 9.0-8.0 (two wins against one).

Game 18 - some interesting action, but drawn.

Post by Graham Banks » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:58 am

GAME 18

As black, Stockfish avoided getting into queenside trouble as Houdini had done, and even started to look slightly better, eventually winning a pawn. This time though, that wasn't good enough to win, as after the ensuing tactical melee, the Houdini bishop pair and better king position held sway to secure an endgame draw. Stockfish leads by 9.5-8.5 (two wins to one).

Game 19 - Stockfish squeeze overcomes stubborn defence.

Post by Graham Banks » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:11 am

GAME 19

Stockfish gained a spatial advantage out of the opening and very gradually put the squeeze on Houdini. Houdini defended stubbornly, but eventually something had to give. The fall of a queenside pawn led on to Stockfish infiltrating the kingside with its rook to convert the win. Stockfish has opened up a two point lead at 10.5-8.5 (three wins against one).

Game 20 - Houdini hits back straight away.

Post by Graham Banks » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:22 am

GAME 20

As white, Houdini was also able to achieve a positional bind, eventually creating two connected pawns on the queenside. Then after the rooks came off, the passed pawns kept Stockfish busy while Houdini's queen play rammed home the advantage. Stockfish's lead reduced to a single point at 10.5-9.5 (three wins to two).

Thanks Stuart.
Yes - possibly a Houdini v Komodo match to follow.

Game 21 - solid Stockfish holds out Houdini. Draw.

Post by Graham Banks » Tue Nov 28, 2017 5:39 am

GAME 21

Houdini played actively as black, managing to create a passed pawn on d4. However, Stockfish had a solid position and there was no advantage forthcoming. After Stockfish gained control of the b-file, a mass of exchanges led to a drawn rook and pawns endgame. Stockfish leads by 11.0-10.0 (three wins to two).
