Some arbitrarily chose position is not suitable do decide about an engine is good or not.
In the evaluation of every engine there are "dark stains".
So only engine-engine matches can show the real power of engines.
Capablanca was a genius for playing game endings and was also a Chess World Champion.
The problem I left on this topic was solved by Tahl and he was also the Chess World Champion.
So a good engine is one that can solve a problem and also be a Champion in engine vs engine match.
This is only your idea.
The old time Chess World Champions were not machines and they were also not perfect.

What I mean is that one thing does not remove the other. That the deficit of the engines. The better they are for competition the worse they are at solving problems and vice versa. Older, lower-range engines perform better than current ones.

But then there's no good engines. Either they fail at this puzzle or they're destroyed by Stockfish.

All engines are bad.

It seems White should resign, but UCI engines can't do that. :wink:
It's a white win.
Cool. Now I'm actually interested.

Oh, now I see. I guess I better throw Stockfish out. :wink:

Re: How good is your engine?

"Problem Solvers" is an extremely useful category of engine, and they don't have to be world beaters for strength in game play to be incredibly useful.

The best is Bluefish-XI with a couple small tweaks, which has no rivals so far in my testing.
But there are positions that will baffle Bluefish-XI and yet Sting can solve them.
Maybe it is necessary to run Chest to solve a position.
It is nice to have a full tool-bag so that we can find the answers we are looking for.
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.

I gave Winter the first position from this thread, not expecting it to find anything. Indeed it struggled and I gave up on depth 40, only to see that the bestmove UCI output was the right move! After starting the search again it was printing the correct line form the beginning :)

With a fresh search it likes Nf6 up to depth 11 before rejecting it in favor of other moves that it believes offer no winning chances. I think contempt could be used in order to more easily find the right answer for such problems.
