Chess Partner 6

Chess Partner 6 by Lokasoft was announced 10 years ago, today. Who would have guessed that version 6 would be the last major release? (The Windows Store "Version 8" freebie doesn't count.) CP was my preferred GUI for years. Here's wishing Lex will, at some point, resume development of this great GUI.

Re: Tarrasch GUI 3.10c is Available

I find that Tarrasch is a very useful program. It's not an all-purpose GUI. You can't use it for engine matches, for example. But almost every day of my life I'm visiting chess websites and reviewing games and problems at these sites. Tarrasch is perfect for quickly setting up a position or playing ...

Re: In Praise of The King

The King still surprises me sometimes. This is v3.12, from Chessmaster 9000 in 2002, on old hardware, getting around 585KNPS, and finding a mate in 15 in four seconds.
