Re: I and Father are not alone - Hiarcs 11.2 MP lost!

The two losses were only possible because of premoving. Shuffling the pieces behind a pawn wall and winning on time is some kind of art but not really chess. If Hiarcs (or any other chess engine) would be programmed to do that (close the position and shuffle the pieces around with premoves) it woul...

If you played against Kasparov for example, and drew, wouldn't you consider this a win for you? :D
No
If I would lose many games against Kasparov and then get a single draw, I would consider it a total defeat.


Besides, it's not Kasparov; it's a strong but stupid machine.

Re: Sensational! Y.Ossipov talking about STRELKA
