Re: Test Position - avoid move b3

Hi,
Interesting position.
I agree that b3 does not look very good....
I don't like the Ra1 suggestion as a rook locked in on a1 is not much better.
Maybe 1.f4 might work.
Best

Re: PT 50 Leiden, games from Dirty

Here are the games that Dirty played. Nice games Fonz. By the way: what's the story about the "no-information" policy of this tournament? Do you have some? Standings etc. Thanks in advance. Hi Bart, It seems Jan Krabbenbos is too busy. Hans van der Zijden replaced Jan to conduct the tournament. May...

Re: chess computer board

Hi, I've created a chess computer board. Because I can. There's room for improvement :-) https://www.vanheusden.com/Embla/board/ Nice. Seems you used standard led with black mounting clips. Maybe it would have looked better without the clips,or clips in the color of the board square*. Maybe even be...

Re: Hashtable aging

Dear all, up to now I have just been clearing my hashtable before each search which is obviously losing all the information gained during the last search. The chess programming wiki isn't very clear on how hashtable aging should be done. I'm thinking of adding an "accessed" flag to my hashtable ent...

Re: AVG virus scanner

Well, the server source was not even on the machine. Re-installing Cygwin is what I finally did, as AVG apparently not only deleted mintty.exe (which I could download from somewhere) but also bash.exe. Unfortunately this had the side effect it also upgraded gcc from version 3.3.4 to 5.3.0. And this...
