Frank James Marshall vs 850 elo Shredder

Post by kgburcham » Fri Feb 25, 2011 12:15 am

small hardware, 4 threads
lowest setting of 850 elo "beginner" in Shredder "playing strength"

"One of the most sensational moves ever seen on a chessboard was played in Liverpool in 1910. The game was published in a
contemporary magazine, only to be ignored by the chess world for nearly a century. Finally, though, the move was hailed as
perhaps even exceeding Marshall’s ‘golden’ 23...Qg3 for beauty and shock value."

33...Qg4

Interesting game, but
1) After 33.Be4! (instead of 33.Bh5?) White had an easy won game
2) White has still a reasonalbe advantage after 35.Kg3! (instead of 35.Kg2?)
Conclusion: Marshalls queen sacrifice is won in all variations whereas in this game this is not the case.

So much for the strength settings of Shredder...

Someone should try Hiarcs at 850 Elo to see if it plays that move :)

hiarcs 13.2 850 elo seems to do a much 'better' job (giving up to 3 mins on each position)...
