I let an eight year old version of Houdini crank away at this for 10 minutes. It came up with 1. b3 d5 2. Ba3 Rd8 3. Be7 f5 4. B:d8 Nd7 (-0.13) as the main line.
Then I put in AZ0's 1. Bg5 and ran it for another 10.
1...f5 2. Qf3 Qg8 3. Be7 Rf7 4. Nd2 Kh7 (-0.52)
It then settled on 2. Qf4 in a few minutes, considering 2...h:g5 3. N:g5 the main line.
10 minutes later, it still stood firm that 2...h:g5 was best. I moved 2...Nc5 (Stockfish's move).
10 more minutes, and Houdini still liked 3. N:c5 h:g5 4. Qd6 Qg8 (+0.25) better than AZ0's 3. Be7.
Have fun with this game with your own (and probably better) engine.
In this position, it is white to move.
Caruana vs Grischuk at GCT Paris
This is a must know pattern in K & P endgame
How quickly can you work out white's winning plan here? This is a good one.
White seems to be in trouble. But is there a way to escape?
This is a game between GM Sadorra and IM Hambleton.
White is up in materials but how to get the black King out?
This is one of the chess puzzles I created for 2017 SPFGI
Black is up in material but white has space advantage.
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
