Re: Robodini Q&A

So if you did not solicit the idea and someone like Richard publishes it, then you are in good conscience free to use it, right? But if I pump Richard for this information then I would be guilty. In other words, once the cat is out of the bag and it becomes common knowledge, there is not much the o...

Re: Humans are better at positional chess, Corr. chess prove

In your linked games the human not satisfied the premiss (if human had the tactical ability of a chess engine), so your disproof tells nothing about the original statement. This is simple math logic.

Re: Proposal for Linux engine standard

I guess it woud have to depend on the capabilities of the engine. If it can be switched through the protocol interface between the various variants, such as Fairy-Max, Pulsar, NebiyuChess, Sjeng (WB) or between Chess and Chess960 (UCI), I guess it would be most convenient if the info-file contained...
