Interesting Game

    Hi Everyone,

    I just finished a game with Clark, and a zugzwang-type position emerged around moves 23-26 or so. From my experience, these sorts of positions normally don’t arise so early in the game. 

    Ultimately Clark won the game, and I feel that my concession of the C4 square on move 25 was the turning point, but I don’t' see an alternative move.

    If you’re interested, the game is here:

    Additionally, if you have any move suggestions for either side — particularly around moves 24/25 — then I’d like to hear your thoughts.

    Must be the nobody else saw a different move either... bring in Alpha Zero!

    I wish! Invader suggested D8-D7/D8, but I feel that gives your E8 amazon too much access to the top left of the board. Even if it does work, I’d certainly be hesitant to play a move like that in-game haha. 

    Amazons could really benefit from Alpha Zero!!
