Re: EGTB's accesed from the internet?

I'm waiting for a 1200GB stick drive. ;)

It's amazing how much faster egtb access is when the files are on a stick drive. Currently the available 8GB, good enough for 5-man egtbs, costs around $74 (US).

Re: CCRL update (11th August 2007)

Hi Graham, I have another "nit-picking" issue. It concerns the way you guys "export" commented pgns. This in no way diminishes my very high opinion of the wonderful job you guys do.

Re: SSDF(Zap!Chess Zanzibar-Junior 10)A1200, 6-2, now 21½-11

There is no need for "disambiguity" notation since one of the 2 rooks is in an absolute pin. The correct notation should be "Rc2". Which gui is it? Chessbase Hi Tony, Chessbase makes its own rules. The best way I know of fixing of the situation, is to use David Barnes free "pgn-extract" before uplo...

Re: Query about notation

If 2 pieces of the same color can go to the same square then we use something like: Nbd4 or Nfd4 This assumes that both moves are legal. If one of the Knights, say the one on the f file, is pinned (absolute pin) to its King, then that Knight cannot legally move. In this case the correct notation wou...

Re: PGN validator

Try using pgn-extract and joined available on Jim Ablett's site:

If comments (legal and not) are a problem, first use trim (part of 40H).

Re: Three chess rules which i can't understand . so need he

4. Since a King is allowed to castle with each of the rooks on its flanks, why shouldn't the King be allowed to castle with a King pawn promoted to a rook? (assuming it meets the usual requirements of not being in check, not passing through check, etc)

The list of killed engines was introduced about a month ago :) The total number of games killed is currently about 2,200 We try to ensure all engines on the list get at least 200 games. If a new engine version comes out quickly, and the old version only has a small number of games, then either we c...
