Agreed. Almost all strong branches including their leaf were analyzed to death. No
win for white after Ra6. SF8 + powerful hardware by posters on this thread
was thrown at this position and nothing comes up. Besides it was proven in
previous pages that SF8 was stronger than DB2, if even SF8 can't find
a win, how much more for the weaker Deep Blue II?
sorry, I forgot the engine of Lyudmil got +5.00 score against Leoni and +10.00 against Ignacio but those games were a clear draw, and even Lyudmil didn't apologize. Very long analysis gives wrong score, how much more garbage do we get for those 1 minute shootout?
the only garbage are your tongue-in-cheek comments.
1 minute games are statistically significant, do you understand that, when a larger number is played?
what draw are you talking man, what draw?
take only my Qg4+ line;
after Qg4, hg4 wins for white in all lines
if Kf7 instead, Rc7 Rc7 dc7 wins for white
black probably holds only after Qg4 hg4 Ke6 Rd7 Kd7, by a thread and a miracle, but, take only even that very simple pawn endgame, take the different possible lines, and only 1 out of 5 or 6 draws for black, the other are all lost.
is that what you call an easy draw?
for me, this position assessment is big white winning chances, or +-
take even Rodolfo line, Kd6 loses
Rd6 instead continues the game, but, again,
white wins 4/5 of all available lines there too.
is that what you call a drawn game?
so that, when white wins in 90% of all cases, you can not possibly speak of an easy draw.
you might be certain Kasparov would have lost that game one way or another, as he even does not see the very engine-like Re8 reply early into the line.
so, your claim would be Kasparov, who analysed this position very thouroughly for his recent book, and played the game too, has an inferior assessment to Nunn, who did not play the game, analysed it some 10 years ago with much inferior software, and is a much weaker player than Kasparov?
