Well I continued the upper game myself against Robbo (I gave it 15'+10'' TC from the position), and it got mated in 15 quite comfortably (I didn't see the mate in 9 though), and I'm pretty certain I'm a crappy player ;).

Just played a queen odd game against Robbo 10'+5'' TC. Easy win.
1500 elo difference is simply nothing for queen odd. As simple as that. The odd is too big.
The same way that a perfect play (God, 9000 elo engine or whatever) would never be able to draw against an average GM with rook odd.

Why not resign instead, this is lost even against sub 1000 elo player ;).


I would not be so sure a 1000 elo rated player or lower could win this, those are the kind of odds I bet you could give to a 1000 elo player or lower and win maybe 50% of the time if not more. 8-)


I can win this game with both eyes closed and and the moves read out loud.

Fair enough. 1-0!

Care to go again, Ted?
