Re: First Review

You are just an A**Hole, Brendan, nothing more that that. That review is fake, it is more than obvious, no substance, he is commenting what TERRIBLE person I am, not the book. :D Are you in your right mind, Brendan? I don't like the book, because the author is a terrible person??? :shock: Obviously,...

Re: First Review

What are you blabbering, Brendan, what reviews? I have no official review like that, where did you get that from? This is some scammer, spoofer or something. Who has not read the book. Because, PLEASE NOTE, there are NO games in 'The Secret of Chess', only patterns. Video channels. Sounds easy. Man...

Re: First Review

You probably need to publish about 50-200 videos before you create a good one. First videos are usually crap unless you got talent. Much work and once you start don't give up. Are you speaking from experience? Or could we just take the word "probably" in your statement as meaning that you're guessi...

Re: First Review

KC is a Candidate Master so should at least be 2200 - I estimate +2250, and I think he'd easily destroy Lyudmil, though my perceptions are mostly based on Bullet and Superblitz... Anyway, chess videos in general don't need production quality at all, I've compared amateur videos from people with som...

Re: First Review

Now, why should I not be drawing comparisons? Hans Kmoch coined the term of levers(pawns attacking enemy pawns), although it passed a successful engine test ONLY with my suggested implementation: http://www.talkchess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?topic_view=threads&p=574014&t=52565. Now, why should I not ...

Re: First Review

Some of those comments may be tongue-in-cheek, we just can't be sure, but we probably shouldn't take everything so literally. I'm reporting things that he claims on his books themselves. So now his entire books should be taken with a grain of salt because they contain outragous nonsensical claims? ...

Re: First Review

As far as I can tell, smooth scaling makes it weaker (sometimes significantly), but has a habit of suggesting interesting analysis moves. I put it in there mostly just because I could and it can be handy for analysis, but it for sure has a negative Elo value (which is why it's off by default). The ...

Stripping a pgn

Hello, dear chess programmers. I have downloaded TCEC pgns, and the last editions have pgns of tremendous length, 10 A4 pages for a single game of 60-70 moves, including all kinds of additional recordings. For example, here is how a pgn of Komodo vs Disaster Area looks like: [White "Komodo 9.42"] [B...
