Re: 5D Chess with Multiverse Time Travel

Yes, I have read this article and also watched the video, but I didn't really understand how the game was supposed to work.

Has anyone tried it for him-/herself?

5D Chess with Multiverse Time Travel

One of my nieces told me about this game, and she was all excited. I had never heard about it before.

Your opinion?

Re: We are the Computer Chess Community. We control ourselves.

These results are consistent with many other testers' results. Prematurely labeling this testing a "scam" is unnecessarily incendiary and immature. In fact, the only testing that's inconsistent with the general consensus which has formed as to the FF2 network's strength (-5 to -20 elo to SF 13) is ...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

I doubt it. To summarize Vondelle, it’s not worth it and it’s legal but immoral. Now Vondelle is a perfectly nice fellow and usually pretty levelheaded. So if he’s getting worked up about this, there must be something deeper going on. You sure? Once every 2 years I buy a new version of the Fritz GU...

Re: Fat Fritz 2

Could it be that we would have been spared from this ongoing thread simply if there was 'Powered by Stockfish' logo somewhere on the (virtual) box of FF2? Yes, this is actually a perfect suggestion on how things could have gone in a completely different way, with everyone being a happy camper. Even...

Re: correspondence chess in the age of NNUE

Even today engines are only a decision support tool, true with NNue and so on they have improved, but correspondence chess at higher level also needs human understanding, .. Maybe ( although the draw rates actually suggest otherwise), but the question is whether any of this "decision making" couldn...

Re: correspondence chess in the age of NNUE

I think many answers miss the main point which is (IMHO) that the major task of the humans in correspondence chess these days is to choose between lines that have either been suggested by computers or that at least have been computer-approved. The question that suggests itself is whether humans are ...

r3kb1r/pp1n1ppp/1q2p3/n2p4/3P1Bb1/2PB1N2/PPQ2PPP/RN2K2R w KQkq - I never understood this one. It is obviously flawed ( we can easily see this now with current strong engines) as 1. a4 isn't the strongest move. But what was the logic that made the move look appealing and where exactly did the logic ...
