Change the unfair ruler

Now we change the 50 mover rule. It is outdated! We then also change the en passant. It is outdated! It is unfair only PAWN can use this one. But if my opponent plays the d7-d5, it should be fair enough every piece can now capture on the square of d6: also Bishop Night Castle and King can do. Agree?...

Re: What's the longest checkmate that makes sense?

They find the 115 mater hundreds year ago. Then they already upgrade the rule you ask in 1928. Our granddaddies asked for it yes? Then it become a mess because the computers find more. Every time they change the ruler. But nobody can understand the database move. They change rule in 1992. Now it alw...

Re: fortress_draw_rule

I guess the best solution would be this: a side that has a win can request a larger number of moves than 50 in order to achieve it. But if he does so, and doesn't manage to win (e.g. because the game converts to insufficient material, or runs into a repetition), he will be declared loser. That shou...

Re: Cursed win at TCEC

In this particular case: with the 50 move rule in play and under perfect play by both engines (guaranteed by the use of tablebases) the relevant position is a draw. There's simply no room for discussion. I say "yes". The same they deny the climate change also deny 50 mover and voted the Zaphod Beeb...

Re: Cursed win at TCEC

They gave the SYZYGY to the engine. The SYZYGY follow the FIDE ruler. But they gave the GAVIOTA to the GUI. The GAVIOTA don't follow the FIDE ruler. The GAVIOTA has the wrong data. It is the bug. They must give the same to engine and to GUI. They say they follow FIDE 50 move rule. They must give SY...
