16-20 Wilderness

Postby Ed Gilbert on Sun Aug 13, 2006 7:09 am

I put the 10-piece kingsrow with the opening book generator program to work on this Wilderness I line: 1. 9-13 22-18 2. 11-16 18-14 3. 10x17 21x14 4. 16-20. The new positions have been added to the book10 file which can be downloaded from my website. The 16-20 defense draws, but defending it can be quite difficult, particularly against 24-19.

The play in book10 corrects some errors in published play.

1. 9-13 22-18 2. 11-16 18-14 3. 10x17 21x14 4. 16-20 24-19 5. 6-10 25-21 6. 10x17 21x14 7. 1-6 29-25 8. 6-10 25-21 9. 10x17 21x14 10. 2-6 26-22 11. 6-10 14-9 12. 5x14 22-18 13. 14-17 18-15 14. 10-14 15-10 15. 17-22 10-6

and now published play gives 14-17 to draw, but this move probably loses. 7-11 or 8-11 will draw. A drawing continuation is

16. 7-11 6-1 17. 3-7 23-18 18. 14x23 27x18 19. 11-16 19-15 20. 8-11 15x8 21. 4x11 1-6 22. 13-17 6-9 23. 17-21 9-14 24. 22-25 ...

The latest book10 has about 1000 new positions supporting this 16-20 defense. Link to the kingsrow website.
