I’m playing a ten game match between my old Saitek chess computer (circa 1993) and MadChess, a chess engine I wrote.
The first game is complete. MadChess won convincingly. MadChess protected its king while attacking the opposing king, busting open the white defense and winning two pawns.
MadChess played Bf1 then pushed the f pawn. After winning a bishop when the f pawn promoted, MadChess pushed the h pawn. The white king was unable to stop the pawn’s advance and MadChess promoted it to a queen, coordinated its movements with the black bishop, and checkmated the white king on the h file.
Analysis by the Shredder 12 chess engine. Shredder finds blunders of one pawn or worse.
