Re: The Fine Art of Chess

[Moderation] Lyudmil Tsvetkov is now selling a new book he has written, and tried to promote its sales here. I think this kind of advertizing violates the charter, so for the time being I moved it to the moderator archive. I would be interested to hear the opinions of others on whether such announc...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2019 set

i have this position in my testsuite since 2011 and did always consider it as correct with 1. Bxh7 as best move...i would be surprised if this is incorrect but new times can bring new insights :-)...atm i really doubt that there is sth equally good as 1.Bxh7 !?

Re: 29 Alpha-Beta's against Leela...

yes, as i thought....1...ra6 seems to be not really worse as well according a quick insight (if worse at all, which i cant see atm)...and if 1...rec8 is a tranposition then how long does it take SF to find it, lol...if it chooses 1...Ra6 it doesnt matter imo...its always the same (more or less) imo....
