I played few games of Einfach Genial at BSW today. Once again I was playing against a true pro: this guy had almost 1600 games played with an 81% wins. Even if most of his games were two-player, it’s still very respectable percentage.
But, guess what! I managed to win him once! I did lose twice, but both games (well, all three games) were very close. Two were resolved by second-weakest color and in the last one, which was a bit of a disaster, he won by one point. Not bad! I thought I played a pretty good game, but I guess this also tells something of the learning curve in the game: 1600 games doesn’t mean an absolute superiority over 24 games.
