I've installed a free chess engine on my computer, and am going to begin supplimenting the site's analysis with that of the free version of Rybka. I will be posting the analysis in this blog, mostly so that I will have access to it in the pretty chess.com board fashion whenever I like. I'll be doing the games I've already played first, then catching up from there.
I'll use the following conventions (from White's persepective):
>=+2.50 decisive advantage
+1.50 - +2.49 moderate advantage
+0.50 - +1.49 slight advantage
-0.49 - +0.49 even
-1.49 - -0.50 slight disadvantage
-2.49 - -1.50 moderate disadvantage
<=-2.50 decisive disadvantage
I won't bother adding the subjective !?, ! or !! symbols, but I'll also adopt the following:
?! - difference of -0.50 - -0.99
? - difference of -1.00 - -1.99
?? - difference of -2.00 or more.
This exercise is new to me, so if you've got input please add it. Also, if you've played a game against me and would like to see the result, send me a message and I'll bump your game of choice up the ranks (include the information [White] v. [Black], (mm/dd/yy)). Otherwise, I'll just go alphabetically through the pgn's I've downloaded (skipping or delaying uninteresting games at my discretion) until I'm caught up.
