Re: Arasan 22.0

I attempted to download the engine and book zip file from here:

http://www.arasanchess.org/arasan22.0.zip

and W10 security flagged it as having the "Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml" treat in the arasanx-32.exe file.

has anyone else had the same problem?

Re: I bought a stop-gap machine

I was just joking. I live in an old condo which only has 100amp service. I think it would fry my circuits! On the up side, I don't pay for electricity, though. It "sounds" like a real beast! Oops, clicked submit before preview. I'm using a hand me down from my son who bought a new gaming PC. This on...

Re: Mate in 11 or not?

I just started a M13 search using Chest. Not sure how long it will take, only getting 950K/sec on my hardware. Should give us the correct answer. On a side note, has anyone attempted to create a MCTS Solver solution to search for mates in chess? I was thinking about it recently and thought the score...

Re: Mate in 11 or not?

Fire 7.1 was tried... Fire quickly finds M11, but then changes it's mind to M12 and finally to M13 where it remains for at least 30 minutes.

Premature search stop in Crafty 25.3

I tested Crafty 25.3 and 25.2 for that matter on this position: 6R1/k7/P7/PP6/8/1K1p2B1/6pP/6br w - - 0 1 It is a mate in 9, pretty easy for most engines. Crafty starts the search and then abruptly stop the search prior to finding the mate in nine. Here is the analysis from Arena. The earlier ply in...
