Re: Fire 5 is out!

[quote="Frank Quisinsky"] To search again the clone topic in times today made no sense. Do you know how many good programmers we lost for 4-5 years.

Re: What for a bullshit clone discussion!

[quote="Modern Times"]
I have no problem testing Fire 5 personally, and indeed I'm currently running it for the CCRL chess960 list. Expect to see it there within about a week.

Re: TCEC 9 super final: the opening selection

[quote="Lyudmil Tsvetkov"] I appreciate everyone's work and, if people like it, it is perfectly fine with me. Just 2 short notices: 1) Imagine a boxing match with 12 rounds, where the first 4 or 5 rounds would be skipped, the match starting from the 6th round. Would that be more interesting and attr...

[quote="Frank Quisinsky"]Robert, at first: I am sorry! I'm embarrassed ... I am too fast with my message.

So in your note before "...ratings are not exactly enough" you used the right word. In my topic I have reacted to this note. I do not want to criticize your wor...
