    So, according to Site Announcements, Russ has introduced play computer. The AI level 0 is pretty weak so what might be the fewest moves to mate it?

    I'll set the bar at 47 with this effort.

    I took Black, at lower levels v a computer the mistakes comes quicker.

    I was hardly going to miss the final combo because today I blogged this.

    White to play.


    The trick is mate in 4 not 5 as in the Philidor Legacy.

    1.Qe6+ Kh8 2.Nf7+ Kg8 3.Nd8+!


    Mate next move.

    It pays dividends to read the blog!
