This is a round 63 game between AI Leela Chess Zero v20.2-32930 and Stockfish 190203. It was from the Season 14 Superfinal of the Top Chess Engine Championship 2019. Both Leela Chess Zero and Stockfish earned their way to this final 100 game match. The featured game's key middlegame decision, and its beautiful endgame play make it highly instructional. The opening was a French Defense, MacCutcheon, Janowski variation. The pop quiz in the middlegame position is likely to make even a most experienced player struggle some in determining the optimal path. Instead of counting pawns, let's see which pawns really count!

I'm a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
