    Giraffe: An ancestor of AlphaZero

    Here are some games between my engine Simple versus Giraffe, written by Matthew Lai of the AlphaZero team.

    The time limit was a minute a game. My engine won 7 - 3.

    Its possible to view the source code to gain some glimpses into how AlphaZero works.

    In this position Black played 1...Nxc3 which Giraffe met with 2.e6! and after 2...fxe6 3.bxc3 had a lot for the pawn. A deep sacrifice for less than one second per move.

    PGN viewer often doesn't cope very well with having large amounts of other notation and numbers in between the moves.

    Giraffe has misplaced its King by playing Kd1 to evade check. After Bc4 d5! and White lost in a few more moves. Giraffe largely played well positionally, though tended to get pummelled in the tactics.
