ROUND-1. Fritz (White) kills Chessmaster 11 (black) after a miscalculated pawn sac by the latter in the midgame. Youtube link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jvCT2GzjUk Provided by STJukes

What do you mean? Combine them how ?

The idea behind the whole project is to test the engines of Chessmaster GM edition and Fritz 12 against each other by themselves. Combining any of them with another engine won\'t produce a reliable result. Round 2 is half an hour away.

ROUND-1 Chessmaster (white) had a slight advantage throughout the most part of the game but fritz showed superb endgame calculations and reached a draw in what looked as a lost position. I would appreciate your comments and suggestions about white\'s options for an alternative 49th move because it looks to me that in this position white still has resources to win the game. Any feedback would be welcomed.

ROUND-3. Fritz (White) scores another blazing victory against Chessmaster 11 (black) in a wild game with a distinct advantage for white throughout the most part of the game. I\'m very interested in your opinion on black\'s 9th move that allows 10.Bxf6 for white which either loses the d6 pawn or creates an obvious and extremely dangerous weakness on the kingside (which happened in the actual game). Fritz wasted no time piling up on that weakness and eventually was able to scatter and neutralize black\'s defenses.

I believe here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chess_engine you can find all the relevant data on the subject.

Fritz went straight for the kill. Frankly 41. Rh1 is what I expected and what I would have played in white\'s shoes for i wouldn\'t have the balls to try to pull a checkmate with the black\'s queen and bishop so close to their king. Engines... :)

I\'m sorry i couldn\'t give you a direct answer but I\'m not competent enough to even speculate on it. That link could give you more info than i possible could.
