I will add...
I do think that chessplayers used to have a greater sense of humility "back in the day". That's because when they sat across from someone, in the flesh, and got their butt kicked, that would bring the ego "down to earth".
Nowadays, everyone has a computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. with various software and some of the worst patzers can smugly feel like a whizzbang chessplayer.
Hey, I am just reporting the news.
you are absolutely right.leko was telling the same thing.
What is this belief based on?
Magnus Carlsen plays better than Houdini and Rybka when he go serious.I dont think their move analysis can be applied to Carlsen, it should be the other way around. Carlsen will tell us if Houdini made a good move.
no man I dont think so.Even carlsen makes mistakes.engines do not.
I think computers ruined the perception of the game and of what it takes to be a GM...I also think that and the internet raised the level of amateurs, club players and everyone else.I don't like the preparation players have now because of computers. It is like they are acting out somebody elses role. Yeah it did happen back then, but at least people played some moves that "could be ok", now they for sure know that they are ok or not...
I agree it has probably made people more stronger....but again it has destroyed romatic chess
I just find it annoying that if you're beating someone online, they can simply accuse you of using an engine and in their own mind they're still the greatest player in the world.
Not saying people don't cheat, just saying it partially ruins the satisfaction of winning if you win without any computer analysis.
