The key move is mate in 24 (see test set analysis file).

Your alternative was ranked 3rd at about +4.5 pawns.

My threadripper has not arrived yet. The shipping tracker says it is in Tacoma (my house is about 1000 feet from Tacoma).

I would be interested to know what time control is needed to solve them all.

Not that I would want you to rerun the entire set at slow time control, but run the ones that are missed to see how long it takes to solve the slowest ones

Here are the results of some the hardest at 30 minutes per position, the rest are still running

7 more to go from here, but I won't be home for hours - off to babysit the grandchildren with the wife.. really loving Ubuntu , I made the right choice!

ps some of the nodes per second are insane - 177M, 175M, 152M, etc. I have to be honest, this is a far more powerful machine that I expected - Dan I suspect you will want to switch over to Ubuntu, to advantage of the Linux Huge Pages - also always use 'modern' , forget the 'bmi2 'or 'native'. There also some tweakings you can do , google 'HUGE PAGE settings Linux' fwiw, going full tilt, the CPU stays steady at 84 C. Asus adjust the speed of the CPU so as not to go over 85C - occasionally it hits 86 and then it will drop down to 84. You can feel the heat if you're next to the tower almost feels like a room heater at my feet.. I appreciate it now, since our house is kept pretty cool, may not be too cool in the summertime...
