After two draws in classical time control , Firouzja lost both rapid games to Ding. First game reached here: 8/7p/1pr1pk2/pR6/P3KP1P/1P6/8/8 w - - 0 46 I thought draw was easy to reach.

Re: Chest for Linux

I am not sure what all this means. You choose to play a color. So who plays the other color? And when? And what? If the other color would never move, you would not be able to progress very far from the initial position... [...] Let's begin from here. In "replay training" user loads a game from a da...

Re: Chest for Linux

I have no idea what you mean by 'advanced replay training'. I don't have any ChessBase GUI. I know that XBoard (in addition to the possibility to 'auto-play' through existing games, or just step through those manually) has a 'training mode'. I have never used it, so I am not 100% sure what it does,...

Re: What kind of game is chess?

It is a tactical game, basically ? Or is it a strategic game? Or if it is a tactical one, is it mostly about Zugzwang? I was considering a post with a lot of interesting positions, but you guys do spend +way+ more time with these things than me, so why spend time? And I haven't seen this question d...

[...] Yes, it was my impression too that Windows and OS/2 was designed to use DLL not to improve speed, but to save disk space. The intention was that similar API (libraries) inside the DLL file can be reused by most applications, hence saving small disk space. Sorry, I am not claiming I am technica...

Re: Chest for Linux

Well, XBoard does most of that. Except the mega database; the database and game search functions would get a bit slow above 40k games. To handle larger databases there is SCID. As a training tool I would add : Advanced replay training. Like that featured in ChessBase 15 and even better . Chessbase ...
