Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB II!

This isn't all of the analysis but it should be enough to figure out what's going on. Not really :shock: - My problem with Qf6 is that white has many, many lines of defense and eventually they explode and I didn't want to have to spend weeks on a move to try to win. I never went over depth 38 for t...

Otherwise, you need to go for chess variants.
My favorite has been Karmageddon, where black can't castle but wins if the game is a draw. I wonder if Komodo 14 could beat everyone in that one with its Armageddon setting...

Re: A community project CCMT

Alright! I sorted the candidates alphabetically to find them, and moved 2 to the saved list (the other one is queen against army of pawns which is a fun variation.) This eliminates 11 variations of the same idea, posted at the bottom. Current positions in the CCMT project (28 out of 100. 72 remainin...

Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB II!

Thanks for the game! I never did a serious analysis of the game with engines but I wonder what is the hard move to find for chess engines that caused some people after some analysis to say that maybe the position after 3...f4 is a draw. I'd really want to know too. Finding a plan for 3...f4 was easy...

Re: Stockfish has included WDL stats in engine output

Usually we have no means of knowing the game theoretic outcome of a position, so as a proxy we should use the outcome of a match played from the position which was selected. What proxy was used that causes K v K positions to appear as white with winning chances? The feature is still in diapers and ...
