    A win for a change against a human. Have been getting decent positions vs machine but then clobbered at level 7/level 8.

    Neat trick, the pressure was building up on e3 so he thought he might tuck his king safely away lol.

    In my game he had forgotten that an early Bb5 will result in the white diagonal being weak and a bishop sitting there will make his life very difficult.

    Your dark square bishop just did one job in this game: checkmating

    Didn't you do a blog about that mating pattern a couple of years ago?

    I'm pretty sure I did. Have done 250+ of them. Not much I have not covered.
