A new Unbreakable from Neghina...

Post by Glarean » Sat Jan 19, 2019 1:55 pm

The Romanian software developer Mihai Neghina is a specialist for super difficult chess studies...

His latest composition is called "The Confusion" and is again extremely complex, even for the best engines.
Probably most programs don't have a chance to get this position in less than 60 seconds...

Weiss moves and wins

Sting diverges on ply 2 but seems happy with the plan. Key move chosen, but the Neghina analysis rejects the ponder move Be2 response.

Well, Cfish-dev also finds Na5, albeit with a score of 0.00. But I doubt it can solve the study. Sting's PV seems odd to me. Qh6?

Well, the study is called "The Confusion"

It seems to toss the queen, but subsequent exchanges make most of it back. No idea why it was chosen, but it thought for an age before it chose that.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Indeed it is a good news, but the idea to sacrifice the black Queen by square h6 is very nteresting and I am very happy that Sting can see such a wise move. There is possibility to do it in another way but I hope the study will be correct too.
