Yeah, I've seen it do stupid things too when I'm analyzing the games I played against it. We get in some technical bishop ending where I'm just winning, I let it sit there for 20 minutes, it says +.3, I go forward one of my moves, and it instantly sees +3.

Re: Beating A Computer

hmm pretty sure that any competent computer would have destroyed me after I very nearly messed up the endgame... I think that's probably a reasonable area for me to focus on because I was like a headless chicken that got lucky.

Re: Beating A Computer

I never play against computers, I don't see the point in that.

I only use them for analysis.

Things were pretty much fine for the chess.com engine after 12. ... Qd7, but the next three moves shifted the evaluation to -3.5, then -12, then #1, lol. Can't offer tactical shots to Houdini and get away with it
