SF quality game

Post by MikeGL » Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:37 am



Sorry if this was discussed previously,
I think this is an amazing game from both SF and Komodo,
almost equal in quality to one of those Alekhine-Capablanca world championship games.
The blow and counter-blow against their opponents king is really amazing, almost comical. Made me smile.
Very instructive until endgame where the pawn shelter of the king (a3-pawn) at the edge of the board decides the game.

Credit goest to TCEC for this beautiful game.
I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

You are 100% correct - in all honesty, it actually might be better than any game 2 humans can play today. The punches and counter punches, pieces being left en prise, the relentless attacks from both sides , the type of game that brings us back again and again.

Your post is also true, I just reviewed some Capablanca-Alekhine world championship match.
Some of that games were won by Alekhine using very simple tactics which was missed by Capablanca.
