Re: Pawns ending

From a engine vs engine blitz game : [D] 8/8/3kPp1p/5P1p/p1p5/p1K3P1/8/8 b - - 0 60 Both engines played many moves giving +3/+5 scores for black .... being a clear draw for an human. What a shame for most engines not realizing that this is a draw. Even a human player of 1700 Elo would do better. Kurt

They usually have complete information on player ratings, and usually have good game coverage. Recently, they include gam...

Re: test position for any new program rated above 3300elo

Nice to see a Linux user pop in here and there. :) Linux is my favourite operating system. I still know much more about Windows OS but I prefer Linux as it is in most cases faster, more reliable and easy to handle ... and what a shame: I have not yet installed Crafty under Scid Linux as I couldn't ...
