Re: Stripping a pgn

File stdin: Line number: 1 Si...

Re: Stripping a pgn

Anyone knowing of a trick to strip the pgn to just the moves played for both sides? Even better, if this could be done with the whole pgn file. Use pgn-extract , this is the command line: pgn-extract -s -C -N -V -oclean.pgn input.pgn This will clean the pgn of variations, comments and symbols. If y...

Re: Latest SF dev beats H6 Pro in the Goldin vs Korzubov end

About the Goldin-Korzubov game, you will need many LTC games, that would still be uncertain, a 10 games by a 500-elo stronger player would definitely be better. What I observe is very strange evaluation of SF in some fortress positions, where previously the score was 200cps, now it is 300. Obviously...

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...
