Re: New UCI engine - CuckooChess

I don't think you allocate enough memory for the java runtime. The option -Xmx64m specifies, i believe, that the runtime is allowed to use 64 mb of memory. But when the hash table is set to 64, there is nothing left for the rest of the program. Please notice, that the hash defaults to 16 mb, and th...

Re: New chess game anyone.

Nick has a point. I think we should consider this move carefully. What do you guys think? Regards, Carlos After 10.Nh4, Nd4; if we play 11.Bd1, Black could play Nxe4, giving up a knight for two pawns plus a bind on our game. I'm against Nh4. Look at this line more closely and you'll see the dangers...

Re: New chess game anyone.

What if after Nh4, black plays Nd4 followed by d5? I don't think you can play d4 if White plays Bd1 after Black's Nd4. Black has to play exact chess to stay level because all whites pieces are well placed for Kingside attacks..... well both have to play exact chess ;) Now if Black doesn't play Nd4 ...

Re: New chess game anyone.

Well I like the thought Nh4 in this position which can be followed with f4.. get some attacks going now that Black has also castled Kingside. Need to stop voting soon regards, starting Nick Nh4!! This is how we win. We play g3-f4-f5 and launch an attack. The key is that we have to avoid d5 from the...
