Re: Looking for best Boris Spassky material (english chess books) ...

Hi,I also have the book from Raetsky/Chetverik.
It is a collection of positions from Spassky's game turned into puzzles.
There is a better book from Jan van Reek "Grand Strategy,60 games by Boris Spassky"

Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

Thanks you very much Larry. I appreciate the attention and deference you have with me; Being very close to reaching sixty years of age, we discovered the scope of that proverb that teaches: "Vanity of vanities and everything is vanity." I am very clear that Providence has wanted to place me in a wo...

Re: AMD RYZEN 2950 Speed issue

Now I get the following speed. Is it normal? I somehow feel that the speed gain should be more than 8k. Do you realize you have 16 physical cores? You can'r run 2x faster with hyperthreading. ~1.3x is normal. With Intel hyperthreading you get ~1.3 x the performance. Although I never tried I have a ...

Re: Super bullet chess: LC0 network 31510 vs Fire 7.1

And how many of those "chess programs or humans who are not beginners" can beat Fire 7.1? I think this is a bit unfair towards Uri. He sometimes seems to be trolling a bit , but he is spot on here.

Re: Dirty CUCUMBER

Hi Andres, I encounter a very odd thing. I have named the Dirty exe to 'Dirty_CUCUMBER-x64'. Now when I install it under Arena (under the name Dirty CUCUMBER 64-bit) and start it, it does not move and displays a message that Dirty_CUCUMBER.exe is not found. When I go back to the installation sectio...
