Switzerland 6, Canada 0!

The suicide checkers match ended in an even clearer result than the hockey match between Switzerland and Canada at the olympic games: Suicidal Cake beat Roshi47 4-0. Its authors then challenged me to two games human-human, and I managed to raise the Swiss score to 6-0. All in all, a surprisingly lopsided affair. I wrote a short article on the match. I have a couple of afterthoughts on the match, which I will add to that article in a couple of days. All that is left to add right now is the following email which I received today:

To: Martin Fierz
From: Jonathan Schaeffer
Subject: Suicide Checkers
Date: Wed, 8 Mar 2006 16:48:02 -0700
X-Mailer: Apple Mail (2.746.2)

Congratulations! Experience trumps youth :) I think both
Mike and Frano are stunned at the result.

Now, that is something to be proud of :-)
