Re: Only use an Engine if you can NOT solve it !

Here is a typical chess.com puzzle with a 1874 rating and a 24 second time allocation to solve. Don't use an engine, just try and solve it without help and try and do it in 24 seconds. Black to play and win. This is many times tougher to solve than the simple tactic that was put up and that only 2 o...

Re: Only use an Engine if you can NOT solve it !

Never mind it seems to have been a glitch, I see it now on b3 ... somehow it did not show without several page refreshes. This is a simple tactic and would rate around 1400 to 1500 ELO on the chess.com tactics trainer as the pattern is very obvious. I think this type of tactic is never missed by an...

Re: Who is keeping track of the Cell Phone engines ratings ?

I would be really interested to know what the strength of engines on mobile platforms are today, especially with NN now being available. I would think that NN is the equivalent of massive hardware boost, which should help the limited resources offered by mobile platform. If you consider that massive...

Re: Has Stockfish NNUE reached it's limit now?

After the sacrifice of Queen, have you thought to Qa1+ and Rd8+ giving back Queen on Rook d1 ? This position would probably be good to add to the puzzle rush catalog but this would be a puzzle around 1600 ELO to 1700 ELO rating. After the queen sac all you have to do is calculate that the nuisance ...

Re: Has Stockfish NNUE reached it's limit now?

Or maybe go back to classical eval? :twisted: Probably yes, but it will be a long long way to go now ( Probably 3 years + working). In the last Sufi 19, it was NNUE that just stepped in time to save Stockfish team. ( Lc0 vs SF Classical ended up 59-41 in bonus match). And in cccc, Classical lost to...

Re: You want to see why human can NOT compete vs engines in Bullet Games?

By the way Lichess has Stockfish NN where you can choose to play against. I can quite often beat level 6 in bullet as it can play like 3400 ELO at times and then play one very poor move which will allow you to get a smother mate or a winning advantage ... especially if you make it to the endgame. B...
