    Bill Jordan flukes a win over Houdini

    I will edit this later and fix up the pgn.

    No handicap, no sparring, me versus Harry.

    I took about 5 minutes, Houdini took about 1 or 2.
    Played on a very fast computer.

    I taught a woman to play chess, moves only. And less then 24 hours later she showed me how she defeated what was the highest rated computer at the time 1987 (something Fort'e that the delux model had the mobile arm to move pieces) - not sure what setting it was on

    it must have been your tutelage in regards to swapping off every minor piece in an iqp position that made the difference...............
    Ruin is formal, devil's work,
    Consecutive and slow -
    Fail in an instance no man did,
    Slipping - is Crash's law,

    I learnt something from that. But in that game I think my king was closer to the pawn than opposition king so by swapping off pieces I could advance the pawn with king bodyguard

    Really nice attack Bill, coming to grips systematically with more and more key squares for your pieces and target squares for the attack... And exploiting the completely closed centre to attack with pawns on your castled side, whilst patiently building further and further knowing that the black pieces were passive and not easily improvable. Love this kind of methodical, logical kingside roller.

    Ive added some more games I played against Houdini at that time.
    The first two games are in sparring mode, so the engine is weaker.
