This new approach for Chess ...

Is there a page listing the moves for the different pieces on this page? Or could a small piece of text be added when you select each piece
describing its moves? Thanks, this looks very interesting!

Andrew
Just click HERE in that page and then on a piece's name in the list.

Re: LC0 0.18rc2 ID11201 blind spot?

After the the heatwave is over in middle europe I could finally do some testings again on my weak passive cooled (but silent) gpu with latest LC0. In the position below it uncorked 23.c4? vs. SFdev, which has some tactical long range holes. Does it play the same at longer time and better hardware? ...

Lc0 now has a training run using tablebase rescoring for training, rather soon we should be able to see improvements in endgame play from this.

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

They need to implement tablebase adjudication for this tournament to cut down o the number of times we end up watching engines messing about for 100+ moves of pointless crap.
