Re: I don't think Carlsen will ever be discredited

I have no doubt! I said "so far".
By year 2100 he may well not be in top ten of history, even if he is now (which i dont know for sure).

I don't think Carlsen will ever be discredited

I don't think Carlsen will ever be discredited as possibly the greatest player in history so far, even if or when he DOES go down. But btw, he just now made a bad start in a tournament, after taking a break from chess tournaments for a few weeks. It certainly doesn't mean he's starting to go down ye...

Re: They caught igors rausis?!!!

It's enough to be
1). Allowable in public opinion
2). Allowable in the press
3). Allowable to make investigations.
4). Can be used in court corruptly even if not officially allowed.allowed.

Re: buying a new computer

I am waiting to buy a new desktop myself. AMD is going to release its next generation ryzen 9 cpus with 12-core (24 threads) tomorrow. I think it will be very good hardware for stockfish at the half price of intel's cpus (500$ compared to 1100$). There 16-core version will not come out until septme...

Because, when does small material count? Mainly at the end of t...

Re: It looks like the big 3 in TCEC are LC0, SF and Allie now!

Now Top 3 engines tied in TCEC! The best engines are all very active in improving. And all the best engines are free. Komodo is the only commercial engine at the top that is still active. And why must we watch Houdini 6 from 2017 lose again. Tcec needs a rule to not play engines season after season...
