Re: italien opening

If white does not give chance all black will get is equality, Don;t except White plays like a noob against black. If Ruy Lopez stands out then Italian will so as both have same themes. It is weird that this comes from you Master Om, because in 2011 you were holding that the Italian was a superior d...

Re: italien opening

where Stockfish prefers white but it's black that has the advantage, and the critical positions contain material imbalances that engines don't seem to play well from the white side. If white does not give chance all black will get is equality, Don;t except White plays like a noob against black. If ...

Re: Vote for Fritz 17 Replacement

You said any move that doesn't lose is a 'best move', I say a 'best move' takes into account the chances that the opponent will blunder. Best is a relative word. technically Albert Silver is right. What u said cannot be said best. Rather a move which exploits opponents weakness. The blunder opponen...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

I just want to say that I think the distinction between "tactical" and "positional" problems is rather arbitrary and not so useful, because in real chess games good positional moves are found by tactical details.

Re: Winning after Qf6+!

The dev does not find variations in appropriate time. I used mostly Allie 0.5 and Honey FD What typical times and depths did Allie & Honey go to? (I don't know what the "FD" means.) Others have already used SF-dev, so it's probably good that we now have engine variety. AFAIK For NNs depth does not ...
