Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

I do not know if the opening position is a draw. You have proven that we can't know that the conclusion is correct, that doesn't mean it's incorrect. If a person is going to write in a math exam illogical claims in the way he solve the problem then I think that he deserves 0 points even if he is lu...

Re: The day when imagination and will was stronger than artificial intelligence. Man against chess machine. November 201

Again I wish to thank the super chess computer operator for allowing me to play chess in my capacity as a human being against such a portentous supercomputer engineering. I would never have the opportunity to test and measure the pulse and strength as chess player playing against such a quality che...

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

When I wrote the conclusion is wrong I meant that you cannot get conclusion B from knowledge A(not that B has to be wrong). The position may be a draw with perfect play but you cannot get this conclusion from the fact that harvey did not find a win and there may be positions that there is a win but...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

However, if you notice any issue with MultiPV or have any suggested improvements, please contacted me here on talkchess Well, I don't expect you to implement it, but here's this idea . Komodo MCTS claims that its MultiPV is the best thing around and would provide better results than Stockfish, but ...

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

The conclusion is wrong. You meant to say "the conclusion could be wrong", for the reasons you stated. But after I found 18. Rc2 Re6 it took me less than an hour to see black was winning, and I didn't need to solve it to a mate in X. My conclusion is only wrong if Harvey and me can't tell the diffe...

Re: Fritz 17

The most ironic thing would be that all these discussions about piracy would be irrelevant because weights that are better than Fat Frit's exist and are freely available already.

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

Bf5 also wins after Rc2. White is holding on by a string in the current position. I think I can defend Rc2 Bf5. Of course it'll all be moot if Harvey beats me. But think about it, white MUST have a draw with best play, lest Harvey wouldn't care if I played Rc2 or Rcc1, because he'd know a line that...

Re: Fritz 17

We buy FatFritz and everything else is not our problem. Some people are claiming that only one person needs to buy Fat Fritz and then they can distribute its weights so anybody else can use it without buying it. I don't think I've ever seen a precedent for a case like this, it would be piracy to di...

Re: The day when imagination and will was stronger than artificial intelligence. Man against chess machine. November 201

This lag abuse isn't about the time that the engine gets, but about abusing lag. I believe that Father wouldn't be able to do it in 1 minute +1 second increment time control even if on a normal game the level would be lower than 5 0.

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

I was hoping for 18. Rc2 as I found Re6! Yes, I think 18. Rc2 leads to a "black to move and mate in X" position :) 18. Rcc1 is the only move that still holds the draw (except that one misstep and I'm toast, let's see if I don't trip.) We can finally show how a position where white is lost looks lik...
