Is the Sicilian an innacuracy?

  • #1

    The computer analysis of chess.com surprised me by calling 1...c5 an innacuracy in one of my games and recomending the Scandianvian (1...d5) as the best response to 1.e4.

    Go figure!

    No, it isn't. Laughing 
    Remember Kasparov's words: "Computers are stupid!" Wink

    So it happened to you too? The fact that it keeps changing the "best" second move makes it even weirder.

    Even Houdini gives 4. Ba4 as an inaccuracy.

    Computers can't evaluate openings well, it's why they are given opening books.

    Well, so it is 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 and than Houdini sugests the only good move is the trade, right? Incredible!

    I agree with MSC157, computers are kind of stupid with openings. We shouldn't let them trying to figure out the best first move, as they would calculate endless possible lines and find no solution. 

    So, the real question is: Why did chess.com enable the computer to make comments on book openings? It makes no sense.

    I remember I used this device more often before, and it didn't analysed until it got out of the book

    Maybe I'm the next Houdini.  I think 1.e4 is an error!

    Arguably, the Sicilian has been the most effective inaccuracy in the history of chess.

    Lol i love the scicilian and so do alot of other people SO SHUT UP COMPUTER!!!

    Some computers are worse than others. The chess.com analysis computer needs serious work.

    Computers are not stupid, and cannot be stupid, any more than a toaster or a screwdriver could be called stupid.  People that program computers can be, however.

    Well, at least there is a  Belgian defence. I am struggling to find a Brazilian one.
