Re: Chernin-J. Polgar, New York 1990

Judit (at about age 13) defeats a grandmaster, with Rxg2+: [D] r6k/pppn2rp/3p1b1q/3P1b2/1PP2p2/2NB1N1P/P4PPK/2RQ2R1 b - - I have tried this on a couple of engines and it seems to be fairly difficult - even if I force Rxg2+ Rxg2, Arasan 10.1 still takes a while to see a + score for Black. On my Athl...

Re: Phenom X4 9500 2.2G or INTEL Core 2DuoE6750 2.66 for ch

Depends only on whether the engine you plan to test with fully supports 4 CPUs or not. If not, the Core2Duo is clearly the better choice. BTW, have you considered the Core2Duo Q6600 (with G0 stepping)?

A side of the discussion think "yes"; they argue people has got tired of PC and that the experience to play on them is not fully satisfactory. The other side say "NO...

Re: shame on toga authors

Posts like these are only an insult to the hundreds of authors of original work, it's not like there aren't other strong engines for you to play with besides toga/strelka&co.
