Re: We are reaching the Max Odds that a top engine can give the top 3 GM's

Very soon either Stockfish or Komodo will be able to give a Knight odds in TC of 2'+1" to the top 3 GM.s, but we are really witnessing the maximum odds that any engine would be able to give to the 3 top GMs, since none of us will be able to see an engine giving a Rook Odds with a TC of 2'+1" The re...

How many moves does white need to checkmate? 2b1kb2/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/RNBQKBNR w KQ - 0 1 To solve the position, I used Stockfish 11 .

Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions
