Heroic defeat

Last night, I had the privilege of seeing four kings on the board.  Blind_tiger, a really strong player, was playing HaChu at 60-10 (this is a small time handicap for the human player, as currently the bot can’t use byo yomi).  The bot managed to get a second lion, and blind_tiger was faced with the unenviable prospect of playing 10 seconds a move when 17 points down (81dojo’s assessment).

 

He played brilliantly, and went over 10 points ahead. But both Drunk Elephants promoted to Crown Prince, and he lost his way in the (I presume) unfamiliar situation. Still, it was a heroic defeat.

Here is the game record.
