Re: Polugaevsky - Maslov 1963

Here is one of those positions that has several winning moves. Polugaevsky actually played 25.Rd5 here which almost all of the engines I've tried think this move only draws (however Polugaevsky went on to win a very nice game anyways). Deep Junior 2010 and Stockfish 1.6 seem to find the best move q...

Re: New engine: Ildtiadar 0.8

I just uploaded an important update! I was able to tweak moving time again considerably and now it runs in the better, slower mode a lot faster and probably can't do 40 moves in 5 minutes but maybe at least around 20 (depends on hardware obviously). Give it a try, it also should be more challenging...

Re: Critter 0.52 available

This is a complete rewrite (moving from Pascal to C/C++) utilizing bitboards. It took me quite a time, but I am very satisfied. NPS almost doubled(!). Search algorithm is almost the same with only a few bugfixes. Static evaluation is a bit different due to bitboards, but all major terms are pretty ...

Re: Congratulations to the new moderators

Maybe we should have a referendum on whether robbo/ippo etc.. links should be allowed in the forum - same voting restrictions as the moderation election. Maybe these links can help clarify the situation. http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30772 http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.p...
