Once more this is a game between our friend boulet (Black) and Mogwai’s MLA program at its highest level (White). You can see this game 29001 on MiGs‘ history.

This is Black move 48, and MLA is currently 3-4 ahead. At this point, the program should have concluded quickly. However, the game will continue until move 62 and a 4-6 score.

With this situation, could you have done better than MLA and will you win with only a few moves?

What endgame(s) do you propose?
