Re: CCT 13 - Round 3

Isn't there a mistake in round 3? Should the game Arasan-DJunior 1-0 not read 0-1 since the final position is a clear win for Black.

Re: CCT 13: Website update and news

A nice homepage .... I hope that you will get some further registrants for this tournament, otherwise it would indeed be a pity.

Re: Somewhat OT, a single decisive game in a 12 game corr ma

An Elo difference of 68 points in corr games seems to be too less to give the stronger player the expected advantage.

Re: Rook endgame: Wojtaszek-Navara

It is rather interesting to see the difficulty that some endgame evaluations still pose, even without requiring special shots to be seen. In today's game between Wojtaszek-Navara, the endgame that ensued was only understood to be lost much much later than strong human players. At this point: [D]1R6...

Re: How can I check if stockfish 2.0 use the Book.bin?

Re: Houdini and Chessbase GUI engine matches

When running engine matches with Houdini in the Chessbase GUI, sometimes one of the following happens: - Houdini uses nearly all its time on the first or first two moves of a game; - Houdini plays the whole game instantly, as if it has no time left on the clock.
