Re: Do you test engines with or without using a book?

humans aren't forced to play the same openings with both colors, they play the openings they know well, and the same should happen with engines, building for them a book that makes them go into positions they understand better, to show their true strength. When testing engines, I also think this wo...

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

This limit is still there:
Scid only allocates three bytes for some data fields. This means si4's maximum number of games is 16,777,214.

Re: KomodoDragon brilliancy Ruy Lopez - Marshall! A marshall reborn?

I once thought Marshall was already analyzed to death and the consensus was that this openning just leads to draw. That consensus doesn't include opening expert (sic) Tsvetkov's opinion: the Marshall might pretty well be busted In the game you post, white already plays weak with 15. Re4, so all bet...

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Curious, the guy who wasn't willing to invest 300€/month on a DB maintainer is the only one complaining about a free DB maybe using copyrighted material. As for the DB itself, I bought it years ago and it was full of duplicates and bad formatting. Not to mention most of the games in the Golem are bl...

Suddenly +10 in NCM testing for latest SF version. Really unexpected and weird :? !

Re: Queens Gambit

draws scarcely seem to be part of her playing record At least as shown, and as far as I can recall, completely non-existent.
