Chessandgo volunteers that he did not expect our last two moves in his analysis.  He didn't say if that was good or bad.

 
Does that mean he expected all of the rest of our moves?!  Wink  
 
It would actually be an interesting exercise to go back and see how many of Chessandgo's moves we saw coming and how many of them we were completely surprised on.

He volunteered this even after I told him I didn't intend to share his comments with the rest of TheMob.  He said he didn't mind.  After the game is over, I intend to release a transcript of the in-game comments.  It will be pretty boring.  Even the stuff about his mother.

It amazes me that Chessandgo responded to our 34b in only  12 hours even though he says he wasn't expecting it! This is especially remarkable given that his reserve overflowed that move, so he could have waited a bit longer for free.

Did you mean to say "... I told him I intended to share"?

We expected his 34w but not his 32w, 33w or 35w. I wonder if we can tell him that without giving too much away.

Sure we can tell him what we were thinking, because our thinking has completely changed since then.  Also we can tell him whether we think we are winning or losing at the present (as long as we don't mention specific moves or strategies for either of us) because our opinion of whether we are winning or losing keeps changing.  If we are perfectly frank, we have a good chance of misleading him.  Smiley

The Mob game has to be one of the highest quality and most thoroughly analyzed games of Arimaa ever, and even so the two sides regularly surprise each other.  I'm trying to get my mind around how far we are from anyone feeling that Arimaa is "played out" and needs rule changes, as World Champion Capablanca felt about chess in the 1920's.

As written.  I didn't intend to share until he said he didn't mind.  After that, I did the opposite of what I originally intended.  Clear?  I think Jean wants this to be as fun as possible for everyone.  I really like his attitude.  That and his playing ability.
