Way back in August I wrote an article where I introduced a chess engine personality called “Johnny Hector”, which plays sword-swinging, crazy attacking chess!
This is the type of violent chess that’d have even the most seasoned tournament player quaking in fear.
Today I’m proud to show you four recent games which are not only beautiful, but very instructive for you guys keen on improving your chess, as well as having a lot of fun!
So let’s begin.
As mentioned, Johnny Hector 1.0 plays nothing like a chess engine and you’ll actually feel like you’re playing against a real live person on the other side of the board.
He’s designed to play like the famous Swedish Grandmaster and I believe I’ve come pretty close to an accurate imitation of his amazingly bold style.
When he sacrifices a piece…it could be a brilliancy, yet it might also be a blunder!
Just like an aggressive human.
It’s up to you to refute his idea!
In the video above, I showcased 4 games where key tactical/dynamic ideas were laid bare and analyzed the games in detail for you.
This knowledge will serve you well in your own games, so make sure you watch the video and squeeze every lesson from it you can!
Here are some key takeaways from today’s video lesson.
ZChess 2.00 vs Johnny Hector 1.0
Johnny keeps the queens on with 21…Qa5 and, soon begins to open lines for a queenside via an …a6 break.
Johnny Hector 1.0 vs Ktulu 9
Against a very strong opponent, Johnny bravely sacrifices a knight with 16.Nxg6!! and demolishes black in a beautifully instructive attacking gem.
LambChop 10.99 vs Johnny Hector 1.0
A strong positional chess engine, LambChop confidently pushes Johnny’s pieces around with his pawns, all the while neglecting his development. Johnny is having none of this “bullying crap” and goes on the offensive with 10…Nxd5!!.
Johnny Hector 1.0 vs Mephisto Gideon Professional
In a very human-like game, Johnny launches a vicious attack on Mephisto’s Pirc Defense and destroys the solid 2500 ELO engine like it’s child’s play.
