    Yippeeeeee!!!!

    I plucked a game by Shredder from the site at random.

    Some say you cannot tell human v human game from a box v box.

    This is a box v box it cannot be anything else.

    No human would take that White position seeing that win.
    (well no normal human).

    A decision good or bad would have made when all the action was on
    the Queenside.

    I'm not sure of this. I love the finish but the beauty of it clouded
    by the fact it was 'seen' instantly by a machine and just an ends
    to a means.

    box or not, that must be one of the ugliest games I've ever seen.

    i think the news is actually Deep Shredder 12 released not Shredder 12 Released. Shredder 12 could have been out for some time and its simply the Deep version coming out.

    I don't think people are interested in Shredder like Fritz or the other major programs.

    I like the finish though.

    I've not checked it but I must assume that Black took the longest
    way to get mated and the final position has it';s funny side.

    If it was a Morphy game we could say:

    "....and Morphy tempted the pawn onto the 7th rank to seal
    the Black King's fate."

    But yes ugly is about right. Some odd looking moves by both sides.
    (seeing things that we cannot see - what was Nf3-g5-f3 all about?).

    Is this relevant? What version was playing and on what hardware? I doubt it's the latest.

    In any case, it's an interesting game and not all that shocking to me.

    No, it is both. Shredder releases are synchronized.
