Re: Similarity Detector & wb2uci

oops, polyglot swings the other way, forgot about that. Anyway, I finally got it to work with wb2uci. (Thx, odd gunnar.) The problem turned out to be the fact that Similar sends the command Hard, or ponder, which caused problems with amateur due to some timing issues. There's no need to specify pond...

Re: position from a recent server game

[D] r2r1k2/2Q1n2p/1p2p3/2pp3q/p7/2B1PP2/PP1RK3/6R1 w - - Bf6 is good, but even better is Rg7! (followup is .. Re8 Qf4+ Nf5 Rg5 Qf7 Rxd5). --Jon After Bf6 Re8, there's an interesting position. The obvious move is Rg4, but Bxe7+ is much better, and makes this line pretty good. [D]r3rk2/2Q1n2p/1p2pB2/...

Re: CCT 12: Shredder by Stefan Meyer Kahlen has entered

I definitely don't want to be there, and although I haven't asked, I guess that Joona and Marco feel the same way. It's therefore highly unlikely that Stockfish will participate. I don't have a dog in this fight, but I'm curious, what is it about the tournament that puts you off? And why would your...
