Re: Rxe5!

How long does it take your engine to find it? :? My worthless piece of crap engine would melt my CPU into a smouldering heap before it would be able to find this. However, a decent engine like Bright finds it in about 6 minutes on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop (256 MB hash): FEN: 1rb4r/1pb3kp/p2q1pp1/...

Re: The Inside Story on Rybka

As long as the finished product plays good chess and preferably gives the thinking lines and evaluation, isn't that all that should really concern us? Just my opinion of course. :wink: Regards, Graham. I agree with you on this. However, Rybka seems to truncate its PVs, and I wouldn't mind seeing fu...

Re: Test Position - Nxg5

This position, unbelievably, comes from a 10' blitz game on Playchess between a 1550ish chump playing white (me) and a 1750ish chump playing black (some other guy).

Re: Even the best are human are human - evidence?

Thanks Tony ... one to you, though that one is also in Wikipedia under 'Chess Blunders'. Tim Krabbe also has a set of cases where one player resigned rather than play the winning move - incredible but true.
