Re: Searching for ANCIENT Engines: Bringer 1.4 and Lamb Chop 7.10

About Bringer, yeah I have the earlier version 1.7 too, but according to some opinions (here one: http://www.chess2u.com/t8750-der-bringer-1-4), version 1.4 was especially great. Well, people do tend to have and post these kinds of opinions. :D As the one, who is probably the one person on earth wh...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

The failure of todays chess programs is that they heavily rely on search tree instead of knowledge or intuition. How would you know in the first place? Because Mephisto III displays low NPS? Would you love Stockfish if it displayed NPS=1N/S? Actually this is probably a question of chess horizon to ...

As I seem to be the only one who fed this to Stockfish for some time: Neue Partie Line 1n2k2r/2qr1p2/p3p3/6Np/Pp2Q3/2b5/2P1B1PP/1R3R1K w k - 0 1 Analysis by Brainfish 221119 64 BMI2: 23.h3 Th6 Weiß steht deutlich besser: +/- (1.55 ++) Tiefe: 60/86 11:07:07 132896MN, tb=32482205 I don't have the sli...

Re: For under the Christmas tree?

The first edition from 2004 was a relevation for me. One of the best chessbooks ( and certainly opening books) I have ever read. And no secrets: the author explained very clearly what he did in the first place and how lines were chosen. You did not only get the opinions of a grandmaster, but also hi...

What kind of game is chess?

It is a tactical game, basically ? Or is it a strategic game? Or if it is a tactical one, is it mostly about Zugzwang? I was considering a post with a lot of interesting positions, but you guys do spend +way+ more time with these things than me, so why spend time? And I haven't seen this question di...

Re: The Busted Dutch

I want to post one more topic since my last essential topic message some couple hundred years ago. Forget about hundred. Some say I have been original. Is that really so? Now, Harm will really go crazy, and also Henk, Eelco (how are you doing, buddy?) and (unfortunately) Houdart. Matter of fact is ...

Re: Computer Chess and Capitalism

[Moderation] These postings were split off from the Chessmaster engine-install thread, because they were rather off-topic there, which annoyed some people. Not a problem to split off threads. But it is a problem to misattribute. 1. I have not started off any new thread and 2. “Computer Chess and Ca...

Re: correspondence players wrongly trusted human moves

This is relevant knowledge, Uri, but it is outdated. A few months ago I talked with Matthias Kribben about "Fernschach" by accident. I know him in person because of a completely different context and the topic just so happened to come up in discussion. For once I felt pretty knowledgeable and eager ...

Re: WCCC 2019 Macau..

Yeah, where did you dug up him? My wife would have done better. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I like crem’s approach that one of the lead developpers should always be present if at all possible. It must be a very disappointing experience for a developper who faces a team that is on...
