...is the lack of positional knowledge. This counts for most of curent
chessprograms.

In the last round of Paderborn Anaconda reaches this position with the black
pieces against Hydra and lost without any real resistance.

But it is not difficult to see that black has to play against the weak pawn on
d5 to get enough counterplay. So, the sacrifice of the exchange by 20...Nc5 or
20...Nf6 give black the chance to free his game and equalize the position.

Please notice that my intention is to help the programers and not to show how
weak chessprograms are playing chess.

Have fun and improve your chessprograms.
