W.r.t. NN(UE) nets I wonder if these are just data or could be compared to state-machines for instance . So maybe the distinction between NN(UE) as pure data or instruction is not so clear.

Mods are welcome to axe this thread, or move it elsewhere, since it just looks like a duplicate of the already existing conve...

Re: Looking for best Boris Spassky material (english chess books) ...

Hi,I also have the book from Raetsky/Chetverik.
It is a collection of positions from Spassky's game turned into puzzles.
There is a better book from Jan van Reek "Grand Strategy,60 games by Boris Spassky"
