FINALLY I have finished by challenge with the infamous chess program Chess System Tal 2!
I have just played the last game from this 3 game challenge match (here are games 1 and 2) and unfortunately, I lost again after a tough fight. YOU have to go through this article to become a Chess Master.
The Chess Master – Game 3:
Excellent defence by Tal 2 huh?
I’m actually not that disappointed though.
For the most part, I played my normal chess (no anti-computer strategies or b.s like this), played aggressively and sacrificially and still reached a winning position against a master strength, human-style computer AI within 20 odd moves.
Next step is to improve my calculation and conversion of winning positions.
Anyway, let’s look at some of the key moments, then I’ll let you see my video analysis of the game.
I found the idea of 12.Nd5 rather quickly and never wavered once finding it. Interestingly, GM Stockfish and his colleagues also seem to like this anti-materialistic idea!
As we have seen in the past, I am a fan of the exchange sacrifice. One move 21 I sacrificed an exchange, when a much safer and more logical continuation (21.d4 e4 22.Ne5+-) leads to a position which is simply winning for white.
Still more amazing defence…killing my co-ordination and mobility.
I was very impressed with the way Chess System Tal just found so many nice defensive moves once I missed my chance on move 21.
I soon became disheartened and blundered, which freed me from the misery. 😆
I played 31.Rc1 and soon realised that I’d blundered. Chess System Tal almost immediately played 31…Rxe4! winning a piece.
Ok guys here is a more detailed video analysis of the game.
Here are the final results of the 3 game challenge:
|Game 2:||Win for Chess System Tal 2|
|Game 3 (this post):||Win for Chess System Tal 2|
