Hi Nick,


Quote from: spacious_mind on May 19, 2008, 08:13PM   

But more amazing is how MM4-18 lost the endgame against Montreaux.  It looked difficult to win but it did not seem possible that it would lose 

This is a very interesting game for us but the PGN does not show why. I wanted to make comments about it but did not have time yesterday, so here is what happened:

the Montreux played the tournament in "Offensive" mode and did not care too much about pawns, so it was two pawns behind from the beginning of the game.

Anyway, its evaluation was -0.2 while the MMIV saw it as +2.0 for itself.
After move 31, the position was blocked, the Montreux could not do anything but the MM IV could advance pawns and lose the game.

So during almost 50 moves, nothing happened and when the 50th move came, the MM IV did exactly what Christian and I expected : as its evaluation was still +2.0, it preferred to damage its position and reach +1.0 than to allow a draw which is 0.0 and therefore worse.

And of course, a few moves later, it was not +1.0 anymore but the MM IV saw (too late) its loss coming.

Best regards,
Alain

Hi to Alain and others,
  Is it not possible on this forum to put up a chess GUI
where we can simply click on a forward arrow (">") and
flick through the game? I'm afraid I don't have it in me
to set up a  board and laboriously copy the moves from
the monitor to the board.

I'll change the tournament's page to allow the replay of the games on line... but it will be tomorrow I guess.

Hi Christian,

Thanks for showing the MM4-18 games below.

Wow... it is amazing how Atlanta missed the opportunity to draw on move 58. 

But more amazing is how MM4-18 lost the endgame against Montreaux.  It looked difficult to win but it did not seem possible that it would lose 

And the mistake MM4-18 made in the endgame against Citrine was very bad 

Sparc should have beaten MM4-18 but the position I think is very complicated for chess computers.  The easiest way to win would be for white to give up the white Bishop and winning two pawns by taking the black pawn on a6.  But which computer would really do this especially in 30s/move chess?

Perhaps there is an easier way to win, but I tried to set up this position:

(38. Nb1 Qc7 39. Nc3 Kg7 40. Na4 Rf7 41.
Nb6 Ref8 42. Kg1 Re8 43. Qc3 Kh7 44. R5a2 Ref8 45. Bxa6! bxa6 46. Rxa6 Rb8 47.
b5 cxb5)

I let Rybka 2.1c run for 5 minutes on my Pentium 1.8 Laptop and still it would not play 45. Bxa6!

Therefore it seems unlikely that there are many chess computers who would sactifice their Bishop by taking the pawn on a6.  This would be a good test for dedicated computers.

The other option is breaking through on the Kingside that looks very hard too.

I think for the sake of the Tournament played at 30s/move, Steve made a good decision to accept the draw otherwise you might still be playing today    This is assuming that MM4-18 does nothing stupid to weaken it's defense.

The more I looked at this Black pawn blockade the more I think that other dedicated computers would also have their problems with it.

They are all interesting games though.  Thanks again for sharing them.

All the best

Nick

Hi Larry,
You should be able to highlight ALL the moves of a game with your mouse and copy/paste all the moves directly into Arena or Chessbase or any other chess game viewer. 

The copy/paste should work with any program that replays chess games.

With Arena for example you should be able to highlight (including the game header information) and copy all the games below, then open Arena and by pressing "Shift Key" + "F6 Key", the Clipboard should open (if it is not already openend after you opened Arena) and all the 5 games below should be showing and available for you to replay in Arena.  You can just click on any game then and replay it.

You can also paste all the games (including headers) to Windows Notepad and then save as "anyname.pgn" and then you can open the pgn file with any chess program that you use.

All the best

Nick

Hi to Alain and others,
  Thanks for an enjoyable tournament. I guess surprise
results are to be regarded as almost normal in these
short events. If it were to be a double round robin
event the results would no doubt go closer to seedings.

  Looking forward to next year's tourney

In fact I was a little bit disappointed by the MMIV.

1. He lost against the Montreux in a position which was drawn because he thought himself to have an advantage of 2 pawns. But by giving away one of these pawns (to avoid a draw by the 50 moves rule) he openend the position and died shortly after this.

2. He also lost against the Citrine in a king / pawn against king/ pawn endgame which has a draw as well. But without hash tables he blundered (could have been me since I dont have them either  )

3. Against the Sparc he should have lost too because in a closed positions the MM4´s bishop got trapped and had to be sacrificed for only a pawn. Strange enough the Sparc did not find a way to open the position and win the game so Steve finally was upset and offered a draw 

On the positive side two beautiful victories against the Atlanta (yes!) and the Star Sapphire.

Thanks to Alain and Patrick!

Hi Nick,


Quote from: spacious_mind on May 19, 2008, 09:45AM   

Well if that would have happened then MMIV-18 would have had 3.5 points and joint first place ?

Now that would have been even bigger news then Sapphire's win last year 

yes, but in fact things are not so simple : because it did not play against Vancouver nor Berlin Pro. If it had had better results in first rounds, it would have played all "big guys", so 

Best regards,
Alain

PS : I started a few minutes ago to enter the games, I hope to finish tonight or tomorrow.

Wow Alain!

A great win for Vancouver 68020!

It looks like every year there will be a surprise in Paris 

Last year it was Novag Sapphire and now Mephisto Vancouver 68020 

MMIV-18 and Citrine did very well too

I love it when the less expected happens.

Thanks for sharing the results so quickly.

All the best

Nick

Just to let you know what the MM4 turbo is capable of:

[Event "30 sec per move"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "2008.04.26"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Saitek Risc 2500"]
[Black "Mephisto MMIV 18MHz"]
[Result "0-1"]

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 e6 4. Nc3 exd5 5. cxd5 d6 6. Nf3 g6 7. e4 Bg7 8. Be2
O-O 9. O-O Re8 10. Qc2 Qe7 11. Bg5 h6 12. Bxf6 Bxf6 13. Nd2 Nd7 14. Nb5 Nf8 15.
Nc4 Rd8 16. Rae1 b6 17. Bd3 Bd7 18. Qb3 Bxb5 19. Qxb5 Rac8 20. Qb3 Nd7 21. Be2
Rb8 22. Bg4 b5 23. Na5 Ne5 24. Nc6 Nxc6 25. dxc6 Qc7 26. Bd7 c4 27. Qb4 a5 28.
Qd2 Kg7 29. Rd1 Be7 30. Rfe1 a4 31. Qb4 Bf6 32. Rd5 Rh8 33. Rxb5 Qa7 34. Re2 a3
35. b3 cxb3 36. Qxb3 Rxb5 37. Qxb5 Rb8 38. Qxb8 Qxb8 39. g3 Bd8 0-1




okok,

the Risc 2500 blundered, he should have won.
But 34. ... a3 was a nice move from the MM4.
