    I just played this game on Chessmaster 9000 against a 1645 rated cpu, is it mere momentarily brilliance of my own play or is there some serious bug here?

    [Round ""]
    [White "Ruben"]
    [Black "Hans"]
    [TimeControl "40/1800"]
    [Result "1-0"]

    There is definatly something wrong with the computer. 16...Ne4?? and 20...Ra7?? I have never seen a 1645 player play that poorly.

    i have chessmaster 9000, and set on 1600 it does blunder sometimes. set on 1600, it would lose to a 1600 on this site pretty badly, i can beat it on 1600 consistently, though it usually doesn't make 2 ??'s in one game

    There is definatly more then just 2 big blunders, I just pointed the major ones. Here is a complete list of blunders that I can find.

    2...Qc7? This develops the queen too early and accomplishes nothing
    5...Nf6?? This allows the e pawn to be pushed and then cause a fork next turn.
    9...Bxg3? this is a very unsound sacrifice it gets no compensation and it even opens up an important file for your rook.
    12...Nf6?? The pawn on e5 can take it and black gets no compensation
    13...Rf8?? This doesn't stop the pawn from taking the knight and it puts pressure on his h7 pawn
    14...Qa5+? This looses a tempo after the bishop attacks the queen white is now attacking the queen and the knight
    16...Ne4??? this is the worst move in the game the queen is being attacked and then he just throws his knight in the middle of nowhere and it allows the capture of the queen!
    17...a6?? this accomplishes nothing and allows the knight to be captured.
    20...Ra7?? This is going to lose material no matter what.
    21...b5?? this allows the rook to be captured for nothing after Rh8+ and also sets up a combination that loses the other rook and a bishop!

    I didn't look completely through the game the first time and now I see what you mean. I wouldnt think a 1600 would play that bad. I'll have to get out my game and see how the 1645 player does.

    click on the little bio of the player. maybe it says something "while ruben is normally a strong player, he likes to play after a few drinks, when he is prone to horrible blunders."

    The game looks like an 1200 player wiping the floor with a 800- player.

    Except that would make Hans' loss all the more embarrassing.

    Edit: still funny though .
