Moving on up the Chessmaster ladder, I played Griffin. Griffin's passions are oil painting and chess. He made a career out of his oil painting by becoming a graphics artist in Silicon Valley - and I can see why he chose that route :-)
He made an unsound sacrifice on move 9 (is there such a thing as an unsound sacrifice? Maybe I should just call it a bad move. He did get a little tempo and had me on the chase a bit. My king was unable to castle because of his exchanging a pawn for his bishop. But I was able to get through it and then eventually scored a nice tactic and went up another piece. From there, I offered piece exchanges and he accepted. I was able to gobble up his pawns, make one of my own into a queen and then mated him.
