Can you show us how Black can save this?

Re: Sirius GUI plus Cerebellum release date?

Any updates on the release date for the Sirius GUI and Cerebellum? I was also wondering about that, there's been no update on the release date this year, and both the initial, as well as the revised tentative date, have gone by. I sent an email to Thomas Zipproth and received a response. He says he...

Re: Modular opening book SF analysed 87417 pos., beta-1

Biggest problem: Varied interpretation of engines in eval. Indeed, which brings us to the much broader question, is eval a good metric for book building? I always favoured game stats. For my correspondence chess which I take very seriously I never rely on statistics, there just isn't enough games p...

Re: Sirius GUI plus Cerebellum release date?

"First, take note that the longest 6-man mate took 262 moves (KRN-KNN). Moving to 7-man endings doubled this value. Second, 8-man tablebases include much more endings with both sides having relatively equal strength. All this gives us a strong hope to discover a mate in more than 1000 moves in one ...

Re: Cheating case-my quick analysis: Opinions/analysis reque

12...Kc8 is not questionable, it's obvious that black would want to avoid placing the king on either d6 or c7 because of the Bf4 threat.

13...cxd4 doesn't look questionable to me either. c3 blocking black knight from the b4 square, unblocking it with cxd4 makes sense.

Re: A sign of the times - 40 years old is still strong

I looked at the top 25 GM's in the world and there are a surprising number of them close to 40 or over. What do you this is attributed to? Computerized, structured studying with all the tools and engines we have nowadays. I don't think this trend was there 30-40 years ago. Back then you're prime wa...
