  Ron: to <> I wonder if the score for this game is legit. One of the top computers is unable to mate with king and two rooks versus king?
Feb-22-10  mysql: If white lost on time would it be 0-1?
Feb-22-10  DWINS: This game is clearly bogus. Deep Junior and all other top computer chess programs use a six-man endgame database so it would be impossible for it not to win this endgame. Even without using the database, Deep Junior would win easily being up two rooks.

Furthermore, check out the ratings. Deep Junior is rated way higher than 2362. Something is wrong with this game and it probably should be removed from this site.

Feb-22-10  Bobsterman3000: I would have expected Komodo to pick the Sicilian Dragon in response to e4.
Feb-23-10  Alphastar: <mysql> No, it would be a draw then. The only possible way this ended in 0-1 is that white resigned.

  whiteshark: <0-1> is the result from the tournament page:

One possible explanation is that the game has been forfeited due to repeated disconnection as this tournament has been played via FICS server.

--> Rules :

<5. In the event of a disconnection, the party will be given 5 minutes to return to complete the game and no more than 2 disconnections per game will be allowed. On the third time, the game will be a forfeit.

<6 . In the event that a program can not continue a game due to interface or program issues, it will forfeit the game. Under no circumstances will a new game be formed or the game restarted. >>

Feb-23-10  Valmy: Black has not enough material to mate. Should it be draw in any circumstances, if W don't win for whatever reason?

  JointheArmy: 19. g4?? Major strategic blunder.
Apr-28-10  shortsight: Deep Junior missed mate in one in move 98. Rh3# and many more in earlier and later moves. This must be a Dip Junior with a huge rating and performance dip!

FICS itself (which still has this game) calls it a draw by repetition. Go figure.

2362 was White's (provisional) FICS standard rating.

Nov-01-10  JG27Pyth: Something is severely not right here! 91.Rf4# ... but DJ played Rf3?? Do computers make mouse-slips... you know I just realized that playing blunders in chess could be evidence of consciousness... it requires intelligence to be distracted. To err is, quite literally is, human.

There's the germ of a decent sci-fi short-story in this kibbitz!

Nov-01-10  Elsinore: What happened in the last 20 moves? The players who "ran" black (Komodo) should have just resigned themselves. This was an obvious win for white.

  Penguincw: Maybe Deep Junior was running low on power.

Is the score the same as shown here?
