Saw the 10 preview pages and you wrote about winning against stockfish 4 with stonewall .Well, Stonewall is notoriously drawish opening (since dinosaur age )against computers, of course at least 99% good players already knew and might have tried against computer already. (similar to a player nicked name Grandfather who frequently posted his drawish games with stone wall here). I can tell the reason behind the loss of computer, it was because black did not develop queen bishop on c8. However I highly doubt that the same opening will work against current stockfish or Komodo of 2017 version. If you play stonewall in either 1. e3, d4, bd3 , f4 , Nf3,Ne5 in whatever order, black will respond with d5, nf6 bf5 or bg4 in either sequence. Black will not badly play like e6 and stop developing c8 bishop in that opening. Of course you may still get a draw 1 in 100 against modern computers and it should be according to your rating difference vs computers. ( your 2100+ FIDE rating vs 3100+ computers)


I don't know when people on this forum and elsewhere will finally learn that my objective current chess strength, especially under quiet conditions, is at least 2800?

that 2100+ estimate(actually 2200+) dates back from 2004-2006, and during that period I had a couple of 2400 performances.
I simply played too few rated games during that period, mostly at the weekends or in the evening, after a strenuous working day. Lack of concentration and fatigue play an enormous role in deciding a chess game.

in the course of 12 years, I have added too much chess strength, I am even afraid to think of how large that quantity is nowadays. Matter of fact is that in the last 5 years I have played and analysed at least 3 times more games than during my entire chess training span before that.

I don't know what are you talking me drawing 1 out of 100 against Stockfish. Out of 100, I am usually drawing at least 67.

I acknowledge you are right, though, concerning Bf5 in the commented Stonewall game. It is the much better choice, Komodo does play that move, but not Stockfish.
Just check, current Stockfish will again choose e6 instead.


I believe that if you play in tournament against humans and improve your rating and get the GM title more people are going to buy your books.

If you think that you improved significantly from the last time that you played against humans then I see no reason for you not to prove it by playing against humans(and if you are really strong then you can expect also to earn money from playing.


Very Happy Smile

Hey, Uri, who has so much time to waste on competitions?

You are right of course, but you need at least couple of years to get IM/GM title officially.

All I know is that, when I am commenting the games now for the book, I immediately see all available tactics, even in more complicated positions, while, when playing the very same commented games couple of years ago, frequently, I would sometimes wonder why the hell did Stockfish resign?
i.e., I have not been seeing then the relevant tactical lines, even in simpler situations.

I would assess that at at least 200-300 elo, from wondering 'What the hell is going on' to immediately seeing all tactics.

I guess also a writer's quality/strength could be assessed even by the very books written, don't you think so?

I guess you will agree there might be even players who have never played a single competitive game in their life, who don't have rating, but are actually stronger than Carlsen. Possible?

My predicament is that: to have an abundance of titles for the things I am not doing and no special titles for the very thing I am most busy with, what to do?

Still, I believe in the quality of my books.
