Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

The attached file has my database analysis for the test set. I only have one different solution, and the difference is partial, because the problem has multiple solutions: 4r1k1/1r1np3/1pqp1ppB/p7/2b1P1PQ/2P2P2/P3B2R/3R2K1 w - - acd 51; acs 900; bm Bg5 Bg7 Bxc4+ Be3; c0 "Bg5 = 343, Bg7 = 170, Bxc4 ...

Re: Can current top engines still be beaten?

I don't have experience playing correspondence or very long time controls engine assisted matches. I do a lot of opening analysis and while I believe there is edge for white everywhere in human terms it all end up in endgames which should be easy to hold for engines. I would love to get some perspe...

Re: Arasan 22.0

Thanks Jon for your long time efforts on this interesting engine. I was curious about one thing. If I feed a bunch of Tal games to the program for

Re: Winter NN Training Script
