Since most people use MultiPV for analysis and since the MCTS mode tends to produce more "human" moves because it does not assume that the opponent...

Re: Simple mate in 6 that gives some engines trouble

I couldn't get Komodo 11.2.2 to solve this mate at all. But Komodo 4 solves it in under 3 minutes.

Re: Which EGTB files to download

Arena can use Gaviota TB's for adjudication. This is handy if you enjoy engine vs. engine matches. Houdini 1.5a -- the only free Houdini -- supports Gaviota only. The Nalimov TB's are still used by some engines, e.g. Hiarcs and Crafty. So I suggest getting them all. If that's not an option, go with ...

Chess Partner 6

Chess Partner 6 by Lokasoft was announced 10 years ago, today. Who would have guessed that version 6 would be the last major release? (The Windows Store "Version 8" freebie doesn't count.)

Re: Tarrasch GUI 3.10c is Available

I find that Tarrasch is a very useful program. It's not an all-purpose GUI. You can't use it for engine matches, for example. But almost every day of my life I'm visiting chess websites and reviewing games and problems at these sites. Tarrasch is perfect for quickly setting up a position or playing ...
