Default Easy v Lacey ends in crash

So, as I said I would yesterday, I played Easy level vs Lacey, who is
rated about 1350 USCF. Easy is reported by Sanny at being rated at
"2350+".

[Date "2008.9.23"]
[White "Easy"]
[Black "Lacey"]
[Result "*"]

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Ne4 5.Nxe4 dxe4 6.Be3 Bb4+ 7.c3 Be7
8.Qg4
O-O 9.Bh6 g6 10.Bxf8 Qxf8 11.Qxe4 f5 12.exf6ep Bxf6 13.Bc4 Qd6 14.Ne2
Qc6 15.d5 Qb6 16.dxe6 Be7 17.b3 Qc6 18.Bd5 Qb5 19.Qc4 Qxc4 20.Bxc4
Nc6
21.O-O Ne5 22.Nd4 Nxc4 23.bxc4 c5 24.Nb5 Bxe6 25.Nc7 Bxc4 26.Rfe1 Rd8
27.Rxe7 Bxa2 28.Re8+ Rxe8 29.Nxe8 Kf8 30.Rxa2 Kxe8 31.Rxa7 b5 32.Rxh7
g5
33.g4 Kf8 34.Rh5 b4 35.cxb4 cxb4 36.f3 b3 37.Rxg5 b2 38.Rb5 Kf7
39.Rxb2
Kg6 40.f4 Kf6 41.g5+ Kf5 42.Rb4 Kg6 43.Kg2 Kf5 44.h3 Kg6 45.Kg3 Kf5
46.h4 Kg6 47.Kg4 Kf7 48.h5 Kg7 *

At this point, it is clear that Easy was going to win the game -- if
it hadn't crashed. Or, at least, I ASSUME that it crashed. It was
Easy's move, and the chess window changed to read, in nice big letters
just in case I missed it, "Game End".

If this were a true computer chess tournament, Easy would have lost
the game. I'll leave it to the masses to decide the result, but I'd
like to think that Easy resigned, as I'm sure it was very tired. Easy
is reported as taking 20-40 seconds per move, but in this game it
AVERAGED a little over one minute per move. And it was definitely not
due to the CPU being starved, because Lacey does not take any CPU time
on the opponent's move.

I will assume from the above performance that Easy would probably beat
Lacey in most games. I might be tempted to play one game against one
of the next solidly-rated Chessmaster personalities, Josh Age 8 or
Max, both rated around 1600. But I really don't know if I want to give
another hour of my time to this.

Does anybody else care at this point?

Yes play EASY level one more time and have LACY be white ...

I have played two games vs EASY as white .

Ivan vs GC ...

I have noticed in the two games when my Ivan is white , GC as black
does not seem to play as strong.

GC is no where near 2,000 + ELO ......

Ivan vs GC have been good battles...

My Ivan the Conqueror is a Excalibur program so the strength stays the
same...

I have thought about getting the GRANDMASTER chess set they make ..It is
about one and half times larger than Ivan , and the pieces are larger
..I have to say they make a good looking game .....

The set has been out for years now so they mite have a stronger game now
?


To bad that game messed up , i'll play it out.
