Re: Chess variants made with help from alpha zero article

As a lover of chess variants myself, I greatly enjoyed this paper.

Re: Carlsen is leading the Online Invitation LIVE

There is a tendency that some people intentionally(?) post in wrong forum to gain some attention. This one for example has nothing to do with computer chess/software at all.

Also since I allow king captures (and do not check legality of move beforehand) in, pinning was a bi...
