Re: Mario Matous study from 1975 solved by Stockfish

Very nice table. Thanks ! I have also noted that the study is the parent of the common test position n1QBq1k1/5p1p/5KP1/p7/8/8/8/8 w - - So I checked alle the possible squares for the queen which give rise to the Bc7 solution. I found these five: n2Bqk2/5p1p/Q4KP1/p7/8/8/8/8 w - - bm Qc8; n2Bqk2/5p1...

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

Thank you very much for your support. I will never again use TCEC chat or Twitch again, but here I always had many interesting conversations. The reason I'm following up this is that I think that somebody should take issue with it and not allow a few immature people to harass us and to create an eli...

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

It is possible it was automated which doen't help. The rules should be published and they should be sensible ! The message I get when trying to use the chat is that I have been permanently banned. Look a Dan Corbit's post. It seems he at least was not automatically banned. I got the same impression ...

Re: Banned from TCEC chat

Trying to contribute when I have something sensible to say. I have though been contributing since the RGC days and never been treated like this.
