Many computer team members playing the Human v Computer game are missing out. The forum (below the game board) has a highly instructive daily discussion about the best move that can help you see how the high-rated players on our team, and the even higher rated software, analyze a position. (Rybka, Hiarcs, Fritz and Fruit are software used by our team that are all rated close to or above Elo 2900, far ahead of other commercial chess software, and they play at an even higher level when we let them analyze for hours).
What was that supposed to mean? Those players are that high? That's amazizing.
I edited my post to clarify that Rybka, Hiarcs, Fritz and Fruit are computer programs used by team members. Aside from Fritz, the programmers don't advertise them much but they are far superior to Chessmaster, The King and other better known programs.
By the way, it would help the team if members hold their votes until the last 12 hours so so they can benefit from the forum discussion and software analysis. Too many team members are voting without benefit of seeing what the best software has to say.
Doctor Clavius, do you offer Chess as a way for people to learn how to relax ?
Hello Arcturus. Hiarcs 12.1mp running on a Mac with an Intel Duo Core processor needed 4 minutes and 16 ply to decide that 20...Ne5 was a little better than 20...Nxe4. After 17 ply (8 minutes) it made a slight modification and recommended either 20...Kh8 21.Nc3 Ne5 or 20...b6 21.Rad1 Ne5 but the Knight still goes to e5 in both of those lines. The evaluation was 1.37 pawns in White's favor. For 20...Nxe4 the evaluation was about 1.5 pawns in White's favor.
How does Rybka do with Webgog's position (borrowed from Nunn) in his blog "Is your computer blind?"
