    I give up on inserting a pgn...

    The engine isn't that great

    I've got proof - I'll send it if you wish.

    That's a point I never thought of Proof

    I will need snapshot of screen of final position.
    Is that the proof you had in mind?

    It does indeed fall for the above^^

    Interesting competiton idea, but I think you should choose a harder engine...

    And another one...

    Proof that the poor program indeed played so badly. Notice in the last game, it took it quite a few moves to realize that c6 is the perfect spot for a Queen in the Scandinavian...

    Well it's not my thread - and it looks like you are correct.

    But it's off now and some of the 1200's may want a shot at
    beating an engine for once.

    "c6 is the perfect spot for a Queen in the Scandinavian..."

    Maybe it's learning as it plays!!

    Yeah will need snap shot of final position else anyone
    could make up a game.

    Hmmm - I could take snap shot of screen.
    put screen into paint shop pro.
    construct fools mate
    send it to green pawn and get 100 rating points.

    And that when I just was going for the brilliancy swindle prize with a highly theoretical Queen sacrifice:

    Brilliant game but need to get around screen grab and
    into paint shop pro swindle.

    Also IceWalkWithMe is correct we need a stronger engine.

    Now where abouts on this site are we going to find someone
    who has a strong chess engine..?

    An idea perhaps for another compitition: Let's see who can go the longest against this engine without accidentally winning.

    Only now I see I had 5. ... Qb5 instead of 5. ... Qc5 - my fault (can't edit it). After 6. d4 Qc5-c6 the position is correct again.
