G/25 d5 ChessMaster 10th edition challenge #1

Created a tournament against computers on the Chessmaster 10th edition. I'm playing in a 4 player double round robin against two expert level computers (Rick-2065, a Gambit style player. Also Dobie-2143, is a positional player) and one Master level computer (Natalie-2351, plays openings that make complicated middle game position).
Time control is game in 25 minutes with 5 second increase per move.
Current standings W-L-D
Natalie 3-0-0
Rick 2-1-0
Dobie 0-2-1
Ben 0-2-1
