Re: Komodo knight odd match vs FM Victor Bolzoni : report

Hello Vincent, in "Arena" u can adjust the clock minute by minute instead of second by second when u hold the "control" button while adjusting with the mouse wheel.

Interesting match...curious about sunday :-)

regards, Peer

Re: Question about Chest UCI (original Testposition)

Hello Herbert :-) Im sorry for the irritation....the initial position i posted is a dead draw ...there is no mate ;-) The position arose after some personaly investigation in a study by Jan Timman which im still not able to solve and it might be that there is no solution...

Re: Question about Chest UCI

Ah...now i understand
Thank you very much for your reply and your explanation Franz :-)
ChestUCI is GREAT but wouldnt it make sense to "tell" Chest that it has to consider only one promotion when this promotion is sufficent for a "nonmate"?
