Re: New chess rig

Re: TCEC is testing wrong and this is why ........................

TCEC is not really testing the strongest engine but is looking for an exciting and entertaining event. Most people on this forum realize that.

Re: Stockfish NN release (NNUE)

Black side was basically playing without a Queen but didn't realize it while white side did. Interesting game and clearly shows a case where bean counting fails against AI.

Re: Which CPUs was used against Kramnik in 2002 ?

I actually found a Fritz CD that I got at that event. It has some signatures but not sure who. I do remember meeting with Kramnik and a few other people as the daughter of the organizer was a friend. Couldn't find any hardware information but I took a scan of the cover.
