Re: In Praise of The King

Chessmaster is old. Most of the games in Chessmaster 9000 are from 40 years ago, some even earlier than that. That's a long time ago. People back then didn't have so much chess knowledge and understanding as we have amassed today. Magnus Carlsen won't make the same positional mistakes as world champ...

Re: Analysis help for those with the processing power

A bit deeper analysis with multi-pv shows that the top 3 move choices are all very drawish, at least according to Stockfish: I wouldn't trust Stockfish. Stockfish still has many weaknesses in its evaluations. For example I noticed that many times Stockfish weakens his own kingside which is not good...

Re: Testposition and HUGE fail high from Stockfish!!

I think that memory and pattern recognition (pattern recognition requires memory but I may be mistaken) are more important in chess than intelligence.

For example Albert Einstein was very intelligent but not so good at chess so it means that chess is not just intelligence, it's more than that.

Re: Testposition and HUGE fail high from Stockfish!!

I'm not very smart or gifted but I believe that photographic memory plays a very very large role in being very very good at chess. I believe that if someone doesn't have a very good memory he will never be a very good chess player. He/she may be good at other things in life but not at chess. Someone...

Re: Testposition and HUGE fail high from Stockfish!!

Stockfish is a weak engine.

Stockfish is not as strong as Komodo 12.1.1, Alpha Zero and Leela-zero.

No wonder Stockfish doesn't cost money.

Any engine that is free will not be as good as the commercial ones.

Re: Human humiliates in bullet to the supercomputer playing

you have been posting the same game for years. what is your rating 1500? top programs are 3400. what is your point? why do you keep repeating yourself? There's no way top engines are 3400. I honestly believe that top programs are over-rated. The problem is that engines don't compete in FIDE against...

Re: Komodo 1959.00 - Houdini 6.02

Many times I get the impression that humans will always be better than computers at chess.

Computers are just too stupid to understand the game in a very deep way while the best humans can.

Re: Which likely to be the strongest engine 6 months from no

I feel there is a lot of corruption in chess culture where top programmers don't want to publish their engines to the public.

In Playchess I see a lot of very strong engines which don't get published to the public.

Chess has become corrupt and that's why I'm leaving the game, probably for good.

Excuse me for asking because I'm not an expert in computer science and computer programming.

Toltec Pyramid and Toltec Tycho

In the German Chess playing site Playchess I see two very strong engines which were not released to the public: Toltec Pyramid and Toltec Tycho.

I searched all of Google but couldn't find those engines.

Can someone please tell me where I can find those two private engines?
