Re: Chest for Linux

OK, this is what I referred to as the 'first step'. I wonder if this should not be made standard behavior of XBoard's Training Mode. There seems not much harm in always adding the variations to the loaded game, as you can always refrain from saving that game when you don't want them. First of all ,...

Re: Chest for Linux

But how would you know? The engine analysis you do at the end evaluates both the positions of the loaded game, as well as any recorded deviations you entered, and displays them side by side?

Re: Chest for Linux

This is very primitive. What if users move is same or better than the played move ? One can implement what I said that exist in ChessBase and my more suggestions in this thread.

Re: KingBase

Hi, What would you say about KingBase database ? What are your observations ? If I recall, this is a collection of publicly available PGN’s that has been around for a while online. It’s had TWIC games added to it, then it’s been de duplicated, cleaned and filtered by rating. It won’t have many engi...

Re: Analyzing a position Ding-Firouzja wcup19

In the next game Firouzja played a risky opening in the hope of equalizing the score. After: rnb2rk1/p1q2ppp/1ppbpn2/8/Q1P1P3/2N2N2/PP2BPPP/R1B1K2R w KQ - 0 10 He played the pawn sacrifice c5. A few moves later: r1b2rk1/p1qnbppp/2p1pn2/2p5/Q3PP2/2N3P1/PP1NB2P/R1B2RK1 w - - 0 15 He went for pawn stor...

Re: Chest for Linux

This sounds like XBoard training mode. You load a game, select 'Training' in the Mode menu. From then on you can play a move. If it is not the one of the game you get a pop-up saying 'Incorrect move', and the entered move is ignored/taken back. If it is the move of the game, the move is accepted, t...
