Re: Correspondence ICCF Champion Vs Top Engine ?

The only really important thought is that a human...say with a 2000 elo (probably less come to think of it, maybe a lot less) can take engines and 'be' a really highly rated "correspondence" player. It has bastardized the game to the point that 'human'(unassisted) vs engine 'unassisted' is really i...

Re: Correspondence ICCF Champion Vs Top Engine ?

In the July ratings list I will be around 2350 at ICCF. Any top correspondence player would have an easy time against any unassisted engine with regular correspondence time controls (10 moves in 40 days). The problem with unassisted engines is flawed pruning methods, sometimes they prune out the ke...

Lately I've been avoiding well-researched openings, so any books would be practically irrelevant if I were the correspondence player in such a match.
