Re: Who do you believe could be the Blindfolded Champion ?

I'd imagine that playing blindfolded would be the biggest handicap there is. (more than sighted simultaneous, or very small odds or small clock odds).

Is magnus carlsen the greatest human player ever?

He seems to have all the skills of chess history, and does all the right things in all positions and time controls, automatically. A few years ago it had seemed that kasparov was the greatest in history, however, he may have had slightly lower perfection (slightly impulsive? lucky with mistakes?) as...

All Komodo are much below Stockfish right now. Around 60 elo at very least in TCEC condition.
That's what i thought.
So is komodo trying to hold down the elo of its standard engine just to give time for mcts to catch up with it?

Re: Test Position 31.Qh8!

In this position, the White Queen moves to h8 so White can bring his rook down to h7 with check. This will be difficult for some engines, and easy for others I would suspect. this position is based on the ERET 84 position after making a few moves.. 4rn2/1r2pk2/1p1R1pp1/p1q3B1/2b1P1PQ/2P2P2/P3B1KR/8...

Be nice to see anand or similar, overpower magnus

It seems there has been chess activity recently at grenke, or gencke, but again, carlsens nerves are stronger than the others, and he is securing his lead. Anand at one point was equal first with carlsen. I feel it would be very nice if an older star would shine again, and not have to stumble becaus...

Re: Only Gary Kasparov can beat the top chess computer? No. Many of us can beat the best machines.

Sure! With a sledge hammer! Only Gary Kasparov can beat the top chess computer? No. Many of us can beat the best machines. Many years ago, we could read in the texts of the specialists in chess machines, that only then Gary Kasparov could beat the best chess machines. Twenty-five years have passed, ...

Re: This is NOT possible Stockfish beating Komodo 37 to 16

The straight komodo has not upgraded much for a long time.
And mcts has not even caught up to that yet.
(unless I'm wrong in any of this)
