Re: False Positives on Chess Cheating

I wonder about Chess.com's ability to detect cheaters on 'turned based'...essentially email games. It strikes me that it would be considerably harder to prove statistically someone is cheating IF they are a pretty good OTB player. I ask because I found myself in a tournament multi-round tournament, ...

Re: Infinite Anaysis - Most Suitable Engines

I was at 2398 when I quit ICCF...over a decade ago. My last tournament was a WCh Quarterfinal. Honestly, I was having trouble against the engines... Now I actually do use them - to tidy up my OTB repertoire. That is why I was asking about them in conjunction with the ChessBase Infinite Analysis feat...

Infinite Anaysis - Most Suitable Engines

Would anyone venture forth their best opinions on what engine performs best under Chessbase Deep Analysis mode? My gut instinct would say: The latest Komodo for positions of a more quite or positional nature and the latest Stockfish for the more active positions (largely because it looks so deep, so...

Re: Stockfish in Long time control.

I have just used the default SF DD settings so far. I am running some 'deep analysis' via Chessbase. I do like that it goes so deep so quick. I am not sure about its evaluation functions that deep however. Basically, my question still remains as to what people who have tried different engines under ...

Re: Komodo TCEC 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

I would tend to agree. Actually, though, to me 'speed' is relatively unimportant. The mechanical/technological side of things is ever increasing. At some point, what might be reached in 5 min now, will be reached in 2 seconds. To me, ultimately, the most important thing is the 'quality' of the indiv...

Re: Stockfish in Long time control.

Would these settings be equally good for long or infinite analysis? How about a fixed depth of 29 ply for analyzing a series of middle game positions? Just curious since I was thinking about having it or Komodo 6 analyzing the end points for my chess repertoire that usually extends to 25-35 ply.

Re: Stockfish DD: a new official release

. For example something that it not related to stockfish: If a player does not understand why the rook is better than the bishop I can explain that the rook has the following advantages relative to bishop: 1)It controls more squares on the board 2)It can be in every square in the board when the bis...
