The pairing:

The Baron  Hiarcs  ½-½ 

 

This round is started on Sunday 30 April 2017 at approx. 11:45. Harm Geert is remarking "Komodo, sigh...." when the pairing is announced. Hiarcs and The Baron are discussing the drawish line of the book opening. But it is a short book line that is used by The Baron. Nementon wins although Embla tries to confuse its opponent by promoting to a knight. In the end The Baron draws against Hiarcs, although at one time the move played was confusing to the players, thinking that it was a losing move for white.

We have a visitor: Gert Isenberg. As came from Germany on his electric bike, he's entertaining the people with his stories of his trip from home to Leiden.

The pairing:

Nemeton  The Baron  0-1 
Hiarcs  Spartacus  1-0 
Komodo  The King  1-0 
Arminius  Embla  1-0 

 

This round has started on Sunday 30 April 2017 9:45. At 9:44 only Embla is not yet present. Hopefully has not overslept. But Folkert walks in just before the start of the round.

Nementon plays an instructive game for starters in chess. It shows that you should not bring your queen too early into the battles on the board. The Baron punishes this and the games goes lost for Nementon. Spartacus against Hiarcs is a rook ending. Human players would draw this probably, but the tablebases are making it almost impossible for Spartacus to win. The promise of Johan de Koning to draw with The King against Komodo unfortunately could not stand. It lost the game.

Pairing:

Arminius  Nemeton  1-0 
Embla  Komodo  0-1 
The King  Hiarcs  0-1 
Spartacus  The Baron  ½-½ 

 

The round has started. There are a few interesting games to be played in this round. The King and Nementon might be outsiders.

The draw by Spartacus against The Baron was a surprise. In the resulting position the programs could not find a good move to get forward. So a draw was concluded. The game The King - Hiarcs was a sharp game, where white chose not the correct move at the crucial moment. Which resulted in a win for Hiarcs. Komodo's operator Hans van der Zijden mentions that Embla is the strongest opponent it had today. Although Komodo won, it was the longest game of round 3.
