Several things to attend to today: The Wei Yi game everyone is fussing about, a bit on The Thinking Machine 4, and a game by ptobler.

Here is a picture of Wei Yi: (credit: The Telegraph:

Wei Yi

Wei Yi - Lazaro Bruzon Batista, 6th Hainan Danzhou 2015

Now, this is a brilliant game. But I agree with the points made in the earlier Telegraph article. It’s overhyped. Perhaps not a new Immortal Game. But amazing just as well, and I don’t think it has to be contrasted with anything. It’s to be marveled at by itself.


The Thinking Machine 4 is an online chess computer which creates visual interpretations of what it is thinking about and which moves it is considering. Try a game against it! This is my game:

And some screenshots from the game:

And a game by ptobler, because he is the only one that bothered to submit games to my contest and it’s my blog.
