The "IQ" test

Post by lech » Sun Sep 08, 2019 9:48 am

I added some new good examples.

The "IQ" test is a very important part of my project (Sting) and doesn't contain middle-game tactical positions and technical endgames.
Here are positions dedicated to test so-called by me "quasi-intelligent" abilities of engines (full spectrum of possible problems).

Set parameters: "threads" to 1 and "hash" to 1024 and clear hash before each of items.
Don't use such external tricks like: rule-50 changing, null-move disabling, special parameters and others.
The external tools like: MultiPV, tablebases, "backward-forward" and "Monte Carlo" are not welcome too.

"WIN" means the correct solution and non-zero score.

For this reason I don't like to add any authors here.
It is not a question who is the author of an item HERE.
But some of you are able to see this question MAINLY.
It is better to write NOTHING than a wrong data.
Here are position dedicated machines MAINLY.
They are far to want to know it.

I have doubts to 35 too.

I remove all authors and the "IQ" test is:
