Anatoly Karpov’s Queen sacrifices are analyzed. Stockfish 14 NNUE — an AI
chess engine — evaluates how efficient Karpov’s sacrifices are. For
comparative purposes, we provide a dataset on Karpov’s Rook and Knight
sacrifices to test whether Karpov achieves a similar level of accuracy. Our
study has implications for human-AI interaction and how humans can better
understand the strategies employed by black-box AI algorithms. Finally, we
conclude with implications for human study in. chess with computer engines.
