zibbit, I'm grateful for your videos as they provide an extra Master element to the site - very entertaining

I noticed you use houdini as a free chess engine - any particular reason - do you feel that free engine may be better then others in some circumstances?

thanks
rb

I was reading on another forum about Houdini and it's apparently the strongest engine available, freeware or not. It even beats the newest Rybka.

On move 26 in your analysis, you stopped early (it seems to me). I like the computer's 26. b4 move, and saw the R move to cover the queen. I kinda like the look of it, since you get the rook behind the queen, and his knight can't go to d4 easily without your pin of the c5 pawn hurting him. Hm. Your line was probably better though - safer, anyway.

I heard Houdini was good. I also use Stockfish and Rybka. To be honest it would be sufficent to use the 67th best engine in the world at least for me because mostly I am using it for superficial blunder checking. A least the way I use them in these videos.

If I was letting them analyse some openings for hours, then it might start to matter imo.

That has to be one of the coolest ways of simplifying a game that I have ever seen, Rd6 looked awesome and I'm glad you played it! Yes, there were other winning moves, but who could really resist such a beautiful move! Never call a move unnecessary when you can get a good chuckle out of it :lol:

I am sure you are right although I can't find the position you are talking about. More or less I have a quick look at the game and see if I made any huge blunders and also I try to explain what was going on. I would let the engine run for a longer time on each move if this was for instance a tournament game.

Anyway at what point was this? 26.b4 in the game he probably has 26...Bb5. So specific variation or time in video cause I can't figure it out.

Thanks for watching and commenting.

I agree with Steve, Rd6 was the entertaining choice. I think such moves (assuming they are sound) may have a practical psychological component too- if your opponent didn't spot it he may react with " Holy crap- this guy is a tactical monster- I've gotta be more careful"- which in real terms may mean more time on the clock, an undermining of his confidence and a "coolness edge", which come to think of it is probably why you played it in the first instance anyway! :D

Thanks for the game!

Watching it back I appreciate it better now. Rd6! gave me the coolness advantage ;-)

Yeah I should have my head examined if I see such a move and don't play it in blitz!

It was around time 14:28 - normally I post that, just forgot this time. My apologies. Yeah, I like your line better I think - just not quite as clear-cut as it originally seemed (to me).

Ever consider doing a video in Icelandic?
