Here is a game I ran between the Interactive Diagram on this page at 2.5 ply and Zillions-of-Games at 1 sec/move. Assuming that the Interactive Diagram would be weaker, I let it move first. My prediction proved correct, and Zillions-of-Games won.

  1. d4 Nc6
  2. c4 d5
  3. e3 e5
  4. Nc3 exd4
  5. Nxd5 Nf6
  6. Nxf6 Qxf6
  7. a3 dxe3
  8. fxe3 Bf5
  9. Nf3 Rd8
  10. Qb3 b6
  11. Bd2 Bc5
  12. Bc3 Qh6
  13. Bd2 Qe6
  14. Ng5 Qd6
  15. O-O-O Qe7
  16. Qb5 Rd6
  17. Nf3 Qe4
  18. Bd3 Qxd3
  19. e4 Bxe4
