chess.com analysis a random move generator?

infinitefrustration

I analyzed the same position, to the same depth, on the analysis board and by clicking analyze on a game I played. Not only is the scoring of the position different but there is only one overlap in the top three moves between the two analyzes. The top move in both don't make top three in the other. What gives? Am I reading it wrong?

I don't use Analysis on chess, runs not fluid on my phone. I analysed your position with my external app (Stockfish 14) and the 3 Top moves are E5, E6 and A6. But the app needed more than 5 minutes,to calculate this and couldn't "decide" quickly. And that's the reason for your difference, it needs time for an engine to calculate all possibilities... The three Top moves my app showed me changed position very often the first 3 minutes of analyzing. Chess.com offers for not diamond members only limited deep settings, if I am not wrong, that means analyze time is limited.don't know how long it is for u as a free user. And then the engine stops calculating and is just showing you, what it has calculated to this point.

My engine shows d5, Be7, and a6.

@NotYourGranny Another Engine in use or changed settings? Can also lead to a different result.

The "slight" difference is that Black has played 2...d6 and not 2...e6.

Please notice this the next time you will waste electric energy for nothing- either now, or under your next troll account.

Why play d6 and d5 then?

How did you ever become an IM and not learn about transposition and different move orders?

Except not a free user...I'm a fancy platinum member. I don't know however if that is higher or lower than diamond. But I'm certain it's enough that chess.com should let the engine run for me.

Then click the gear next to the depth where it is reading 20 and change it.
