Re: McCain v10 Relea

1. thx MikeB 2. same prob here as Peter has...only Monge compliles work and meanwhile TB's access seems crippled or rewritten eg: 4K3/4p3/4k3/8/Bp6/6b1/2P5/8 b - - 1 4 (normally 1000's of hits...Monges's compile almost none)...looks strange to me so far I did make a probing change - when you have 7...

Re: Square Off ChessBoard

https://squareoffnow.com/ Anybody familiar with this product? Is there a better choice for a self moving chess board with a strong engine? Maybe stockfish. The board itself does not contain the engine. The board requires you to use an app that is downloaded and installed to your cell phone. Without...

Re: Winboard nodes display

There is a small evaluation "flaw" in Winboard 4.8.
