Re: Difficulties using an engine to understand my mistakes

Have you tried using Fritz and the "Analysis" functionality? It will annotate your game, placing a "?" where you made a mistake and showing what you should have played.

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

I tried analyzing the position with a variety of engines and only Komodo Dragon considers Nf4 and does it almost immediately.

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

I watched this game between Nemorino and Houdini 6 and I don't understand why Nemorino couldn't see that it was obviously a draw. It's evaluation was over 100 while Houdini 6 saw that it was draw for dozens of moves. I am no expert but it just seemed strange to me. Nemorino 6 has embedded 4 men Tab...

Hi John, I doubt that there's a website with such manuals, but at least I have uploaded the MCP5 manual in PDF format for you: https://www110.zippyshar...

Re: Nemorino 6 (NNUE)

Funny that when I register the engine in the Fritz 17 gui it says the name is "6.00 (AVX2/PEXT)" instead of "Nemorino 6 (NNUE)".
Even if I edit the uci file it still includes "6.00 (AVX2/PEXT)" in the name.
