Re: Does YOUR Engine Play This Sac? Is it Sound?

...Personally I like 15.Ndb5 the best because it looks like you're using tactics to achieve a strategical goal. Thanks. Yes, actually, I am one of those strange people who studies the games of engines to improve my own OTB play. I have always been a fan of Lance Perkins' Thinker program, which main...

Re: Does YOUR Engine Play This Sac? Is it Sound?

It's a good move , 2nd best move out of 46. Qf2 is better. It improved your game, not sure if I would call it winning - but certainly a move to be proud of. Thanks Mike. Yeah I seen that Ethereal 12 prefers Qf2, but I think this move is very hard for humans to understand. The idea is to keep the id...

But clearly mclane does not just want really good chess. He wants something else, or something more.
It sounds like he wants the engine to be sentient, which as Dan said, will not be possible for a LOOOOONG time.

I'll be impressed (legitimately) even if you even got up to 1800, but the way you're behaving is impossible to believe.

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

If you're saying you gained 800 Elo in one year, yet you aren't willing to prove it, your story is paper-thin bro. I never said improved that much, I just said that I improved some hundreds of elo points, and now can reach winning positions against 2300 guys now and then (just yesterday I reached a...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

Nope, it's not that one! :lol: It would have been very cool if the uly account was taken by someone with 2400, it would have blown you away. But alas, you'll continue to live in ignorance...
