Re: RE chessbase light

CB (and Light) is a program designed for searching databases and manipulating chess games and data. Since CB Light is free, why not just DL it and see for yourself?

Re: 100 long games Rybka 4 vs Houdini 1.03a

Hi Ingo
No surprise that Rybka remains the best engine at longer time controls.

Re: Rybka's magic settings...I think I 've found them

Fine working settings for time control 3/2 does not necessarily mean that they are also good enough for long(er) time controls.

Re: Tinapa 1.01 based on Stockfish

It's not intended for making the ranking list or ratings of the engines. It is intended to find information on areas that the engine is weaker in. Many authors of <3000 rated engines found it useful to tune the evaluation function. It has been helpful to them which is what I'm happy about. [...] Yo...

Re: Tinapa 1.01 based on Stockfish

Hi Swaminathan Are you convinced that the STS is a relieble test? I have my doubts. Is it possible to say much about playing strength if 869 positions out of 1000 are solved using a 10s/move level? Maybe 120 positions of the remaining 131 positions are solved on a 3m/move level. If so, we have 11 (o...

Re: Human vs Chess engines

When do you think we'll start seeing people like Anand, Topalov, Carlson, etc. playing Rybka, Stockfish, etc? You'd think they'd want to give themselves a big challenge and see what they can do. Have there been any matches with the big names playing chess computers since Michael Adams got crushed b...
