Re: Another Brilliancy cooked: Breyer - Esser

SF alone finds Bd2 with >+1 score after 8m48s on an i7 6*4GHz. On a second run, SF doesn't find Bd2 :( FEN: rnbq1rk1/p3bp2/2p1p1p1/1p1nP1P1/2pP1P2/2N5/PP4P1/RBBQK2R w KQ - 1 14 On a second run for me Stockfish does find Bd2, but it takes much longer than my first run (~8 minutes on the first run) t...

Another Brilliancy cooked: Breyer - Esser

In this game Breyer played what was thought to be a very nice move at move 14, 14.Kf1, however computers have since busted this move with the defensive resource 14...Qe8!. I do have to point out though that there is a winning move here (at least according to Stockfish) see if your favorite engine ca...

Re: analysis of 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6

Looks like Stockfish doesn't change it's mind after 60+ plys it still likes 3.Nf3xe5 and the eval doeasn't really change either: Stockfish_18080817_x64_bmi2: 56/84 12:48:05 1,152,343,267k 25,004k +1.82 3.Nf3xe5 Qd8-e7 4.Ne5-f3 d7-d5 5.d2-d3 Nb8-c6 6.Nb1-c3 Bc8-e6 7.Bc1-e3 d5xe4 8.d3xe4 a7-a6 9.Nc3-d...

Even in the 10 games they showed some looked quite similar. Good point Carl, and one I didn't think ab...
