Re: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

Thanks Frank for your (always) kind words. Benjamin 2.0 has a 6th sense for tactics or finding unusual continuations, the cost for that is a serious loss in strength in normal games, 2 different diciplines. Maybe it's true what you say, that it might produce attractive self-play chess, I haven't tes...

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: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

SF 3 best moves reveals fast the most obvious errors.

Re: Unfair Poll

Alright, I see the thread is still here and so I take the liberty to write something that hopefully makes (some) sense. The CTF forum was founded a couple of months before the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and because of that immediately was flooded after the terrorists flew two planes in the twin towers, e...

Re: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

Tactics - interesting always! But I have looked short time ago for CSS-WM test with current engines = SF. I think 10-20 of positions are buggy. Rest are solved instantly in most cases. From your 100 positions I found already 12,21,23,35,46 dubious. Yes, the CSS-WM contains dubious positions, with m...

Re: Unfair Poll

I am only interested in member opinions about my proposal to give CTF a second chance, Srdja did and you expressed yourself loudy, that makes two.

It's about willingness.

Re: Unfair Poll

I leave your points unaddressed avoiding a (large) discussion, what I want to ask if the community is allowed to speak out about my proposal to give the CTF folks a short time to come up with a decent united trio, actively monitoring CTF on a daily base, not afraid to keep the charter people signed ...
