Re: 7-men Syzygy attempt

One of the issues re Fathom and the CFish 7-man code is that the latter assumes you have a full legal move generator available - of course CFish has that, but it is GPL and I'd like to keep Fathom more permissively licensed, plus not all engines have/need/want a Stockfish-style movegen. So that impl...

Re: SF mates Leela in 25 moves at CCC

I think 5. .. Nd7 is just bad, and this may be an example of CCC choosing an unbalanced opening. The game stats from Chessbase actually don't look too horrible, but with best play White is better. The game follows known theory at least through 13. b4. Black had a few chances to deviate: for example ...

When you post a message or reply to one, look for the "pgn" button that is above the text area you are typing in. Click it then place your PGN data between the tags it generates.
