    chicken factor

    Kevin,

    can you run the chicken factor test over Boyd v zhao, a twelve move draw in mid tournament.

    Um, didn't I get flamed last time I did that?

    The URL (if you want to look up what species Mig classifies them as, I'm afraid to repeat his fowl language over here) is
    http://www.chessninja.com/migonchess/migonchess116.htm

    I get:

    Boyd +47, Zhao +79. Nasty. :shock:

    In particular the Chicken Factor thwacked this game for failing to exceed known theory by at least five moves, when in fact it did not exceed known theory at all.

    And sensing there might be some other feathers to pluck I investigated further:

    Bjelobrk +10, Johansen +54.

    That was a rather odd one. Darryl's previous draws have all been hard-fought and generally unlucky but what's this one about, conceding Rogers another half-point and leaving Rogers now a whole point clear of his fellow GM with six rounds to play? I wonder if Darryl is feeling a bit out of sorts and has adjusted his strategy accordingly or something.

    Brilliant analysis gray. Simply brilliant! Just count the pawns and pieces.
