Long-Term Sacrifices: A Staggering Example by FM Dennis Monokroussos
A Google team wrote a program, Alpha Zero, that taught itself to play good chess, and it succeeded in a big way, winning a 100-game match with 28 wins, 72 draws, and not so much as a single loss. While there are questions about various disparities between Alpha Zero's hardware and Stockfish's, the chess produced by Alpha Zero was stunning. It wasn't just the result, but the games. Here we see one of Alpha Zero's wins, a jaw-dropping masterpiece featuring some very long-term sacrifices that work. Watch, and be amazed.
