Just for fun, and to demonstrate this issue, I just quickly (couple of

rather well ... but, I was able very easily to get a draw in 66 moves, no
problems at all! How can I say "very easily" ... becouse I used time only 42

Needle is certainly not in par with Shredder, the former plays in low
or intermediate club-player level. It is not difficult to draw against
it, in fact I have seen many examples of it making stupid blunders and
losing the game.
