Nolot suite has positions, that took 20 hours for Deep Thought/Blue to solve and some were unsolved. SF solves all now instantly except buggy 9 :D .
Do you have a source for this please?

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Thanks for the info. That's what I thought too. But it probably also contains millions of blitz games from strong players, right? Next question: Are you using Chessbase? Or Scid? Is the handling with 30 million games a problem? It's OK ish on the speed side. You'll need a fast SSD, convert it to CB...

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

I do. I can't comment on quality like duplicates, I've not tested that.

But it often finds games in positions where Megabase 2021 has nothing - so it's definitely bigger. But be warned the quality of the games themselves is questionable, blitz games of weak players count.

Re: Deep Analysis

To beat the January blues, I want to make a video comparing the best GUIs for analysis of positions and openings. Ideally these should offer analysis functions which go beyond clicking on an infinite analysis button, which we've had since the 1990s. Any software or website is eligible, providing it...

Re: Deep Analysis

I like novelty mining, Centipawn analysis, and the much improved retro analysis function for games, and using the huge database to see the true TN. The Survey feature is outstanding. My Deep Analysis seemed to work fine. But it took a day to see anything useful. It is slow. All agreed on Surveys, n...

Re: Deep Analysis

I've just tried Lichess, this is pretty basic IMO. I'm looking for deep, ideally automated, analysis on a position or opening system IDEA in Aquarium and DPA in Fritz are good here. Comparison of analysis storage would be interesting between this two. Thanks - this is now included in the report

Re: Deep Analysis

Yes it is very good. And better for deep analysis and opening analysis is Chessbase 16! It has even has more bells and whistles. That put Fritz 17 to shame. So you need to ADD Chessbase 16 to the list. I plan to get it, it's around $150 in US so will after Christmas. The ability to create opening s...
