White is practically one piece down ...
... but it's not enough for Black to win against best play (it seems).
Definitely,Black has to play accurate moves to get to the finish line ....

Re: Arasan 22.1

Interesting how Arasan has progressed over the years. If we think back to the days when Junior or Ruffian or Shredder or Rybka dominated the chess scene, they seemed to dwell in unapproachable light for a time. But the current Arasan would take all of them, and rub their noses in the dirt.[*] Shows...

Re: LC0 uses positional skills to "Lock Down" Gull 3

Thanks for that entertaining game. here's another one where SF11 was crushed in a B vs R exchange sacrifice of Lc0. Don't know where SF11 made mistake but it reported +5 eval then after a few moves realized SFs own eval was wrong, SF was actually losing. [Event "?"] [Site "?"] [Date "2020.06.15"] [...

Re: chess22k 1.14 released

I've never used Chess22k, but I did manage to get the Carballo java engine working ok in the Fritz 13 GUI a few years ago. I had to put Polyglot.exe and Wb2Uci.exe in the same folder as the java chess engine together with Carballo.ini and Wb2Uci.eng files. Those 2 files were as shown below. I hope ...

Re: Chessmaster support by Ubisoft Germany

Unfortunately, the last version I worked on was CM9000, so I have no idea of the workings of the two versions released after that (CM10 and CM Grandmaster). I didn't even know that later versions of The King were SMP. :oops: But it also doesn't surprise me that Ubisoft support is of no help. The la...

Re: Xiphos x Ethereal: Who has the best style?

look at the actual games and critique them from a stylistic point of view. Do you really think you, or anyone else, is capable of viewing a large enough sample to be able to determine a change in (alleged) style from a change that ultimately impacts an engine by a few elo? Its not like people are r...
