Re: Mate in 19

any solutions ??
Black threatens 1..Bxb4 mate, so the first move must be a bishop move with check, but it leads into a repetition e.g. 1.Bd4+ Ka5 2.Ra7+ Kb5 :(

Re: Mate in 19

Only moves that not lost are:
1.Ba7+
1.Bd4+
1.Be3+
1.Bf2+
1.Bg1+
1.Be2+ and 1.Qf1+

unfortunately most (all) engines see only a draw here, e.g.
1.Bd4+ Ka5 2.Nc4+ dxc4 3.Bb6+ Kb5 4.Bg1+ Ka5 5.Ra7+ Kb5 6.Rb7+ Ka5

Re: TCEC - Game of the Month for December 2010

It's a different game. I mean the Game: Old TCEC - October 2010: Stockfish 1.8 - Houdini 1.03a
My mistake.
But this issue appears in October game, really, try it.

Re: TCEC - Game of the Month for December 2010

No, it goes only up to move 52.e6

Then follows Nd653 and then 53.Rg5+

Look at the picture
52... Nd653 is the mistake, Nd653 is no move.
