Got a question for the community here. Is there any software out there that takes a game, analyses it and attaches ratings/strength to individual moves. If anyone knows of such a tool or if anyone knows about literature that proposes an algorithm for implementation of the above idea, then please let me know.
Cheers to all of you
Very interesting question.
I don't know if any software currently does such a thing ... though a classification system for "types of chess moves" with corr. rating range of people who would find them would be a fun thing to design.
Something along the lines of
- Only move moves Rating : 0
- Only move to avoid mate : 800
- Trivial recaptures : 800
- Seeing Single Motif (en prise) tactical shot : 1000
- Preventing single motif tactical shot : 1200
and so forth.
It gets tougher to judge positionally good moves that indicate creativity/planning as engines can't assess things in an "expert system" like manner. You're better off with a massive database of collected test positions rated based on a wide sample of testers. (Novices to Masters).
Some chess test books (like Khelmnitsky's Chess Rating Exam) did something like this in a minimized scale.
"Pardon Our Blunders! with IM Danny Rensch & GM Ben Finegold! "
Complete opening repertoire. Best openings to avoid theory and to win quickly!!!
