George, did you know you could enclose your PGN with tags and make your posts fit one page rather than 30? [PGN] insert your PGN here [/PGN] Thanks, now I would like to see different people taking different odds according to their rating and try hard very hard to win against either Komodo or Stockf...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

do you believe that the ICCF champion has a better chance against Komodo 10 than GM Carlsen or GM Nakamura at time control of 1 move per day? against Nakamura or Carlsen it is possible to give handicap (pawns remove, 3 moves etc) Yes you are correct here was the game played GM Nakamura vs Komodo wi...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

I searched all of GM Carlsen games and none he has exchanged his Queen for two Rooks or a Rook+ Knights + pawn. When Carlsen was a kid just days after he drew with Kasparov at age 12 he was interviewed by a local Norwegian reporter and he stated that he loves playing with his Queen and avoid tradin...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

«Two rooks roughly balance a queen, but with equal pawns, the rooks are usually stronger. This is especially true if there are weak pawns to attack, since the rooks can double up and attack them more times than the queen can defend. This is a typical example» «The Queen is weaker than two Rooks if ...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

Not that I care, but even if you remove one pawn from white that is not central, say a2 or h2, white still wins . And by a large margin. I do not have the slightest doubt about that. Long time ago I learnt that the value of he Queen was only 9, in most cases 2 rooks are stronger than one queen. The...

Re: This last position could be misleading for most humans..

LTC games are usually no good for confirming anything about eval terms, as you cannot do enough of them to achieve a reasonable level of significance. How many games did you do, and now many were won by white? A position could be even or slightly better for one side between (0.30 to 0.65) and the o...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

Would you try again with knight odds if Komodo was, let's say, something around 3500 FIDE elo ? I decided to change it a little this is the new position with white to play, what is your prediction this time without looking at any engines? ==> [D]1n1qkbnr/ppppp1pp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNB1KBNR w KQk - 0...
