Please have a look at move 42 (black) on the following Computer Analysis: http://www.chess.com/home/computer_analysis?id=57954312&game_type=1. There move "f3" is stated to be a mistake, and at the same time, it is proposed as the best move. There must be something very fishy there.
It appears you are passing some invalid parameters in your request. Please try again or contact us if you feel this was our fault.
Apparently, we can't do this. You'd have to cut and paste the game score and analysis into the forum.
If you had the PGN, you could convert it into a game, but for now, I am NOT reading that.
Yeah it's nonsense. It said for me 'Black has a decisive advantage' when white was a queen and couple of pawns up.
@Scottrf, I think I see you post something on every single thread on this website.
Yes this is also happened with me. Computer says on my game that 22...fxg4 is a inaccuracy and proposes 22...fxg4 with a small variations and end up that Black has a decisive advantage.
I prefer not to post the link.
chess.com's chess engine is good but not the best. It is useful for convenience and true blunder checks, but if you want a real analysis by a computer, use Fritz or similar. Best is to analyze first without a computer.
I've had chess.com question a move of mine which lead to a mate in 6 or 7 (I got in in 11 or 12 in the game) in favor of a move which didn't lead to mate for another 20 moves or so. Also, chess.com nitpicks about fractions of a point difference in two moves when you are ahead by more than a Queen.
Bottom line is that you should not be surprised by odd analysis when you are using a computer shared by thousands of users. For a few bucks investment in an older version of Fritz, you can get a much better analysis offline.
Chess.com computer is best when it comes to calculating tens of variation in just a single move.
It's just true enough that even though computer is best when it comes to calculations. They're still not good enough on explaining the details of each move.
So I therefore conclude that when it comes to calculation, chess.com engine is better.
I really appreciate the computer analysis tool and do use it a lot but it is true that if often calls a move an inaccuracy and proposes in its place the very same move. Here is an example analysis comment for my move 21... Nxd3: (-4.64) INACCURACY - Perhaps better was 21... Nxd3.
