Re: Interesting Puzzle for Engines

a4! is a world class move - would be very impressive for a GM to find that over the board. There are some correspondence games that are decided on moves like that ... Cfish is fastest on machine, just a few seconds, 220M nps is insane... 8/1p6/4k1pp/p1p1p3/4P3/1PP4K/P2P3P/8 b - - 0 13 mover viewpoin...

Re: Introducing Harmon Chess App for Droid plus engine updates
