Re: Unfair Poll

Take care.

I thought you have connections to those Dutch universities.
Ok i will try the German ones.

Re: Unfair Poll

Maybe we can ONE moment forget to be funny HGM. Let’s be serious for one moment. When confronted with racistic and neo nazistic postings that were in the CTF forum for YEARS as Günter was able to show in example, We came to the the conclusion that something has to be changed concerning moderation pr...

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

We cannot relate the Stockfish nn values with the older Results, therefore I would advise to use Stockfish 11 without net.

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

Pawel this is a very sad news. IMO an international computerchess forum needs open access for people from all over the world. The situation as it is in the moment is not acceptable. The problem is IMO that those members who Have access here seem not really much interested in the fact that others can...

Re: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

I would guess Benjamin and Benjamin 2.0 as 2 very contrary concept engines are both weaker overall then the strongest pro deo engine.

Re: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine. Benjamain 2.0 goes one step further than the first version, the focus of version 1.0 was on playing style, version 2.0 is meant as an analysis tool to quickly find tactical shots. We ran a tactical suite of 100 positions (mainly positions from the excellent ...

Re: benchmark new smartphones:

I am trying to understand what your posting means. You have a new smartphone. I guess it is a Samsung s20 FE. And you want to benchmark it, So which engine did you use, We have to use all the same engine, otherwise we cannot benchmark the hardware. Then we present the NPS after 2 minutes computation...

Re: A Book For a Vintage Program

IMO the book should be kind of mirror of the playing style of the engine. If it plays like Petrosian I would not bring aggressive openings into the book. If the engine plays Like tal it would be nice to bring open positions into the book. If it plays very nimzowitch.... The engine must come out of b...
