Re: World Fischer Random Championship

It seems to me that Fischer Random is working out better than I expected; I thought it would solve only the preparation problem in chess, but it seems to be doing wonders for the draw rate as well, as has already been shown in computer chess in the CCRL testing. Do you have any thoughts on why Fisc...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

I recall a time when a chess engine would think all night to achieve 17 plies. How would we have defined tactical and strategic then? I think the definition is a moving target.

Just for a short, representative list, (1 from each of several EGTB files (e.g. 1 from the KQPkrr file for example) of positions which represent a long mate that respects the 50-move rule. syzygy lists...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

"Tactics is what you do when there is something to do. Strategy is what you do when there is nothing to do." BTW, the NN engines do not prove that tactics is not important. They prove they can avoid it against conventional engines. But the conventional engineswere never tuned to seek tactical compl...
