While kicking around the site I got the message advising my posting of a game of mine in "Best game" I don"t know how that happened, but it rembarrases me. I would not have made the post voluntarily (2168). Remove it for consideration please.....Wayne

Re: Best game
Ok, the vote has been removed...
I just saw game 2222 was the best game now.. Please vote game 342 ! :)

The "Best Game" should be a figurehead of the FICS-Site - but is it? I don't think so. That so an exotic opening experiment (particularly with black) will run in a real loosing position, is not very suprising. And also the praised last move is found by several engines in a very short time! What we (this site) need is a very high classed game with surprising twists - which engines never can find. And it must be with very good comments on most moves. Looking for this - that is the real challenge for all of us! Wolfgang

Really ?? .. Maybe my engines are outdated :) .. What engine prefer the last move ?
About the best game, I fully agree..... But I doubt a majority of players will choose the best game with the same criteria :/
By the way : FICGS with 'G', FICS is another one :)

Try i.e. Junior10 !
Wolfgang Utesch (2006-10-21 12:31:05)
Or an older one: Junior8 !

I don't have this one, but I experienced the strange behaviour of Junior chess engine, which may 'guess' the best moves for some 'bad' (at least not enough) reasons... I don't trust it much, but it may inspire with some ideas.

I think, only Fritz x has a fundamental problem with this position, for nearly all other engines is the solution only a question of time - some find it faster than other.

Without revealing my engine it find Qf8+ in 5 seconds, so your statement needs correcting. The game is "probobly lost accoring to my engine. Excuse my bluntness. But what a stupid opening for black. Thats where all the trouble began. I would not try and defend the black position here....My two cents worth Thibault de Vassal

Re: Best Game
That's right Wayne, but anyway I would have played it even with one Nf6-Ng8 more... I like these mad challenges :)
