The rule in unjust in your opinion, which is not fact.Lyudmil Tsvetkov wrote: Rules should be changed, when they are unjust, which is precisely the current case.
So evaluating a position at +0.80 constitutes a win? This is new to me.The game was already a white win: SF had been showing 105cps from the early mg, Houdini some 80cps. That is a win, however you would like to look at it.
I for one don't think this is a rule that should be adopted.
Tablebases have nothing to do with it other than telling you with absolute certainty what the outcome of perfect play under a set of rules would be.Why penalise SF because some tablebase rule artificially prunes the mating sequence, rendering it a draw instead?
In this case the outcome is different if the 50-move rule is observed and if it is not.
So is the 50 move rule observed? Yes, it is. Is the position a draw under the 50 move rule assuming perfect play by both sides? Yes, it is.
Do you like the 50 move rule? Apparently not. That's an entirely different discussion though.
Proof it.The claim that H went for the tb position because it saw it is 0.0, and otherwise black had better options, is simply wrong, as, most probably white had a win throughout.
You don't get away with saying you can "probably" proof it.
Note that Stockfish played by the same rules and had access to the same table bases as Houdini. So if Stockfish had a way to salvage the win, it missed it and squandered the point. That's all in the game.
Yeah, there is. Stalemate, which the rules say is a draw. The rules of chess are not set in stone and can and historically have changed. Stalemate used to be a win. Hell, baring the enemy king used to win the game.Concerning your ridiculous claim that KP vs K with stalemate position also favours white, but is still a draw, how on earth you compare this absurd position with the tbs mate? In KP vs k and stalemate, the position is simply draw, as there is no mate,
Yet under the current rules, the position is a draw. The 50-move rule is really no different.
Yeah, but unfortunately not within 50 moves. So the win is cursed.while in the referenced TCEC position, this is a win, there is mate.
