23.f3
Human move (no engine suggested this move.)

23...Rh5
Rh5 is a computer move.
I see no reason for the claim human move.

Stockfish suggested 23....Rh5

Re: Stockfish play very decent giving pawn odds.........

It is certainly a skill, but not one that has much correlation with chess strength. Ha! That's what I've been saying about the starting positions with missing handicap pieces for the engine side all along. "The human drew against the engine after using 10 takebacks to see what it would move and fin...

Re: Stockfish play very decent giving pawn odds.........

Takeback odds with some amount of allowed takebacks are great to fix short-term blunders that the master can understand quickly after seeing the engine reply. It won't fix a long-lasting positional weakness, but it's obvious that takeback odds will noticeably increase the elo performance of any hum...

Re: Stockfish play very decent giving pawn odds.........

My question is if Carlsen need three takeback moves, how many takeback will a master rated player needs at lest 20 or he will need to replay the same game one hundredth time until he draw . Maybe Carlsen needs 20 to draw. Maybe 100 aren't enough. We can't even start to speculate because this terrai...

Re: Opening variety is dead.

Solution: Play human vs human only...open with 1.e3 or 1.g3 and use your brain to transpose into lines of play that catch your opponent off guard. Human chess - try it, it's actually fun! :) I've been doing that with success for a long while, getting the 2100 rated players at Lichess into positions...

Re: Opening Variety is dead

Just one year ago there were exciting times for opening theory. Alpha Zero and Leela were proving that many variations were playable, others were uncovered as traps that A/B engines would fall into.

Re: what is the oldest hardware when engines at GM level?

The intel 80386 is from 1985 Are there chess engines that can use this hardware and get GM strength level? Can people modify stockfish to use this hardware(assuming i...
