Re: What was the last good Rodent?

I have read a lot about the Rodent chess engine, regarding its playing style, and I finally got to test it. The Rodent III 0.287 version, to my disappointment.

Re: Did Ingo Bauer take a break from Chess

Hi, from times to times a break is good. So far computer chess is very boring ... to many Alpha zero news. One time per months is enough for reading that or other chess fora in my opinion. It would be better to added topics like alpha zero or stockfish in a subforum. So it's more easy to find the i...

Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

It is virtually undocumented which is why fanboys have created videos. The software is also extremely buggy. If you don't mind supporting such bad behavior with money, go for it.
