Re: What is the best way to obtain the 7-piece tablebases?

You have free online access to the 7-piece TB here https://syzygy-tables.info/ and even better for direct use in chess programs for analyzing purposes with the Fritz 17 or ChessBase 14 / 15 software.

From one of my current engine tournaments a clear and deserved winner emerged: EMAN.

Have fun: Walter
Hi Walter
I do not own Eman 5.50 and don't trust myself to make a forecast. Still: 60 games without a loss is very impressive.

Re: Is 1. Bg6 Rxe1+ significantly better than 1. Bd3?

Re: Certabo Electronic Chess Board

Seems things have not changed much on the e-Booard front. Appears you need a Bot Account to use an e-board or you have to pay extra ($100 USD) for the AcidApe DGT drivers in order to use your eboard on LiChess. But this behaviour does not seem to be the case with the Certabo Electronic Chess Board ...
