You have to download the program and install it. Not a self installation either as You are decompressing the files into a directory of your chess and running it from there.

LucasChess 11.04a

http://lucaschess.pythonanywhere.com/

A lot of work went into this with all kinds of interesting features. It has 40 engines preinstalled from 0-3300 ELO and you can tweak strength settings for each engine. It also has many training options. For free you can't beat it.

Re: Alekhine's gun or hammer

Maybe Alekhine is a bit underrated. I think he is on same level as Capablanca, Kasparov, Fisher. Winning from Capablanca in 1927 while Capablanca was 39 years old.

Alekhine's gun or hammer

I personally like Alekhine's hammer because it reminds me of Thor's Mjolnir

Re: Alpha Zero vs Stockfish 8 tournament conditions.

The Age of Chess Engines based on alpha-beta Search is over. This is just nit-picking/quibbling by old men who are too set in their ways of thinking to fully grasp or accept the sudden change in the World of Computer chess. No point arguing with them, because if the change is for real, they will ha...
