Re: ESN - Emanuel's Simple Notation - Represent any chess position in only two words!

In the middle of the night I rose, and starting designing my system. The impressive conclusion is that any chess position can be represented using only two regular English words .

If you can find the exact moves of some engine with free source code and rating of 1600 but 1000 times faster then second thing to do is to write an engine with a good evaluation that does selective search w...

Re: Can Komodo give a Queen to a 1500 chess Engine on CCRL?

I believe that I found Stockfish match when giving a Knight Odds, it is around 2150 to 2160 since this engine Knockout is rated 2153 by CCRL, another observation is that the latest Stockfish is not bad at giving Knight Odds it is doing very good holding Expert programs, just like Komodo Dragon2, re...
