List of all 400 legal openings in 2 plies (by # of master games)

  • #61

     Ah, so moves that would be annotated with a square 'ffwere "legal move" replaced with "sound move"[ i.e. maintains theoretical result of round's score].  I wonder if acute'ly forcible scenarios particularly for several turns by both sides tend to be more drawing than overtly obtuse ie nothreatening/quiescent positions

    The acuteness often appears in gambits, exchanges but not necessarily. In my thread about acuteness U can see an old example, called Immortal Draw, consisting exclusively in 1-acute moves. blitz.pngwink.png

    Seems rather subjective. A move early on in the game should be weighed a lot less than later where there are less positions and pieces.

     

    Yes, I know, evaluations depend on engines and statistical evaluations on databases. They clearly shouldn't be taken as the final truth. Nevertheless, it gives some indications on good and bad moves.
