Re: Bashing the Berlin Wall

Kramnik used this defence as a drawing weapon against Kasparov in their 2000 WCC match. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_World_Chess_Championship_2000 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruy_Lopez#Berlin_Defence However I think that if GK had played 4.d3! (Steinitz's move) instead of 4.0-0 then he c...

Strange... Houdini 1.5a x64 with Gaviota working fine but without "NO!"
That's because Houdini 1.5a evaluates minor vs minor endgames as a draw. And so does Strelka.

Re: SUGGESTION: Quazar 0.4 x64 (by Dmitry Morozov).

Hello Ingo: I have a suggestion: Quazar 0.4 x64 by Dmitry Morozov: I guess that Quazar is an original engine (i.e. not clone or hex-edited engine) and this is the reason of my suggestion: if I thought that Quazar is not original, I will not waste your time requesting a test for a clone.

IMHO the best free book is Vesely 1.0. It's about 5 GB, but it's very deep. Zeeman 3.5 is also worth having. There is also Hiarcs book, which is commercial and has good reviews.
