I loved the way Deep Junior kept the attack going in the early stages of this game, but in the end I guess he threw to much wood on the fire. The poor queen was so over worked. :) Nice win by Shredder.

[d]8/p7/1p6/2p1k3/3pnr1P/3Q4/P6K/8 w - - 0 52

Thanks for sharing this.

PS: Who created Shredder's book? Looks like 9. ... 0-0 was a nice novelty.

Junior has always been the speculative engine. As engines improve and hardware improves, this type of style tends to backfire. Against humans though it is devastating.

I fine this statement so true.

According to ICGA site it was Sandro Necchi again and 9... 0-0 I couldn't find in databases nor in books neither.

Hi Peter,

That is why Junior is one of my absolute MAIN engines when analyzing my own games and to train against.
