Re: Are Free Antivirus any good for your Computer?

Nothing is free unfortunately and most likely you will end up with malware that tells you that your computer is heavily infected, or you get annoying subscription requests after you install the product telling you that your trial period is over or that you need to pay to really get the "full" protec...

Re: Learn by playing, NOT by letting and engine to figure it out.

Here try to Win with White to move, please do NOT use any engine to help you, it is better if you get an engine close to your rating and try to win with White, it is the best way to learn NOT by setting the endgame TB and let the engine fig out for you k7/8/1K1N4/7p/7N/8/8/8 w - - 0 1 The Next posi...

Re: Alpha Zero vs Stockfish (8) vs Leela Zero (Lc0)

I think the claims of A0 are quite accurate. I also doubted their initial claims, but looking at how Lc0 and NNUE has changed the landscape of chess engines ... it is hard to not accept that A0 and AI has given chess engines a monumental leap in chess engine strength ... and the mighty SF8 (at the t...

Re: Who is keeping track of the Cell Phone engines ratings ?

I would be really interested to know what the strength of engines on mobile platforms are today, especially with NN now being available.
