P&B Premiership, DiegoDiegoPB defeats Cardinalrichie. A by-the-book exchange Ruy Lopez saw both queens come off the board before the middlegame. White had an advantage in development and its bishop cut off the queen-side castling lane. With his king-side undeveloped, black countered an attack on his bishop with an equal threat to white's. Unfortunately, white was only too happy to oblige and after capturing the bishop forked black's king and rook, ending the exchange +5 in material. Shortly thereafter a disconsolate Cardinal, knowing his Lord and saviour had abandoned him, resigned. I've now booked in for an hour's slot with International Business Machines Corporation to make use of their Deep Blue supercomputer, on which I'll analyse the games of gkneil in preparation for our upcoming bout.
