Is there an article or a paper on how one understands the print out of an analysis done with Fritz 11. I am new to all this and don't understand all the symbols that are used that are not part of the collection " !!. ?, ?? ... " I have checked the help file but that is restricted to expalining how to set the analysis up.
what type of symbols? If you're asking about the + and - symbols then they're here:
+- means that white is winning by a large amount, usually enough to win the game
-+ means that black is winning by a large amount
+/- or (plus over minus) means that white is winning, but the advantage isn't decisive (ex. 1 pawn up)
-/+ or (minus over plus) means that black is winning, but the advantage isn't decisive
+= means that white is only slightly winning, usually by less than a pawn
=+ means that black is only slightly winning, usually by less than a pawn
= means that the position is more or less equal
hope this helps
That's a help. But there are also a triangle and half a dome ( slice of bread ) shape that sometimes preceeds a variant (?)
Sorry for dragging up an old topic, but to answer GreybeardB's last question, a triangle mark after a move indicates the plan that the move is supporting, helping explain the rational behind that move. A semi-circle means "better is," and is used to show a move than is better (typically significantly better) than the text move. I've seen it used mostly often to show a better move to a text move that isn't terrible, but is not nearly the best move in the position.
Best time to upgrade?
