Re: SWISSTEST: 1.Rybka- 2.RobboLito- 3.Stockfish

Actually, I was hoping you'd explain the purpose of testing for moves when all moves have the same end result. Still, the bishop endgame will make a good class subject. I give a weekly class at my club, usually on tactics and analysis, but this is a good one too, as I'm sure many of the students (t...

Re: SWISSTEST: 1.Rybka- 2.RobboLito- 3.Stockfish

Thx for your tests/analysis. I downloaded and tested the suite also, and got very different results. Rolf is correct about the dubiousness of some positions. Notably 3 have no adequate defense, and thus avoiding a move does not change the lost evaluation. ... No, Rolf isn't correct (as always ;-) Th...
