Re: Andscacs - New version 0.87

Thanks for the new version of Andscacs. I wonder if you have some sort of estimation of the difference in elo between version 0.86 and 0.87? Probably more than 20, but not sure as I have not done a serious tests against 0.86. ok - thanks! Maybe it's a bit early to know for sure. My question was mer...

sort of estimation of the difference in elo between version 0.86 and 0.87?

I have had no problems - all programs are running ok.

Does 'all programs are running ok' also include Chessmaster 11?

A question about Chessmaster, though the thread is about Chessbase,,

Does Chessmaster 11 work in Windows 10?

Re: Wei Yi's Immortal Game

[Oh ALL right then! So it's a sound win. White only needed to see a few moves ahead and estimate the rest.[/quote] Yes, that is correct. From Black's point of view, the comments went like "21... Nxd5?! Losing on the spot, but how could Bruzon know?" Well, knowing is one thing and seeing is another. ...

Re: Maroczy–Tartakower 1922

A similar theme just happened in the game Wei Yi-Bruzon, where white crushed through in Fischer style with a quick f2-f4-f5-fxg6 and then Rxf7, followed by Qh7+. Here is a link to the game with sparkling comments by Simon Williams. A new evergreen game produced by an extraordinary talent, in our tim...

Re: Maroczy–Tartakower 1922

Yes, and tartakower's comments after 17.-Rxh2 'A rare occurrence: a positional sacrifice of a Rook, based on general considerations only, succeeds because the opposing forces are disorganised. The sacrifice fructifies nineteen moves after its consummation.' 'This break-up sacrifice succeeds only bec...

Re: Maroczy–Tartakower 1922

I was just looking very breafly after white's 17.Nd2 and noticed that 17.-Rxh2 wasn't exactly found on the spot by the engine. This game was highly praised on the CB-site "The beautiful thing about the following sacrifice is that it was intuitively made by Tartakower. It is impossible to calculate r...

Maroczy–Tartakower 1922

In this game Tartakower took on h2 with 17.-Rxh2 - can engine spot

Facing the GM

In opens the strongest players are usually pitted against low rated ones. So also today when the first round of the Malmo Open was played. We shall have a look at a game between Karlsson 2160 and GM Semcesen 2471. This is a game that's also interesting to follow with the engine. When such a big diff...
