Re: Hard pawn endgame

no prob for Bluefish (Stockfish_19100908_x64_modern.exe did comparably well)...probably because of TB-using but i didnt test this: FEN: 8/5ppp/2p5/p1Pk1p2/3P3p/2PpKP1P/1P4P1/8 b - - 1 1 Bluefish-modern: Found 177 tablebases ... 45/65 00:24 110.369k 4.562k 0,00 1.Kf4-e3 Kd5-c4 2.Ke3-d2 a5-a4 3.Kd2-c1...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

If that is your point your point is damn wrong. LC0 shows this on a daily basis against stronger engines. ok, i might be wrong !... i dont feel mad with this controversary but id like to mention 1 last thing to end the discussion from my personal standpoint : this is not the end of getting the whol...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

u dont get the point actually my lovely compatriot...the point is that there is no strategy beyond tactics... the truth lies in exact calculation and nowhere else...u say its outside "our" search horizon but why i should talk about us ...i tried to to talk about "IT" :-)

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

tactic and strategy are human words to get an imagination of how this game can be enclosed...the real truth about chess is that it is an "endless" tree of calculation and it doesnt matter if we have SF 10 or 20 to get our thoughts oriented...in the end there is always one only thing: does it work or...

Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

well as well but id really doubt that there is a mate faster than 125(-5 to -10) that would make sense to me...there are 2 important reasons imo: 1. the line to mate by concidering the 50 move-rule is very much tightened and as far as i observed there are very view possibilities to alter from the li...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

id say that the best way to clear wether tacics make sense in perfect play or not is to get clearance about the way endgames are handled in a proper way they are solved by pure calculation...imo it makes no real sense to destinguish between 7-men and say 10-men or 32-men EGTB to get to the conclusio...

Re: Tactics cannot be very important for chess

imo i must completely deny the assumption that chess is not tactical...all ive learned about win/loose in complicate/complex positions is that too often positions become critical where a single move dicides between good and bad...the tiny but illustrative divergence of the quality of moves is very o...

Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

well the critical part here is wether black is able to avoid an exchange/mate within the first 50 moves or not...for example in the Lomonosov-line black managed 40 moves to avoid that...if black is able to find a line in which he/it manages to avoid that for 50 moves though then its just a draw, eve...
