Ah, you used 3, not 4. I never checked with R3. I'll have a gander tomorrow. But, for good or ill, I guess this proves that Rybka's algorithm was changed between versions (there was some controversy about that, IIRC).

The great Akiba Rubinstein bamboozles Davide Mariotti and, best of all, your favorite chess program won't find the move: http://wp.me/pAdpb-9c Have you tried Rybka? It'll find the move (and following sequence) instantaneously! Great game. Mind over matter, one of my trainers always said. Th...

Thanks, Jeroen! I think I stole that second position from you. I seem to remember wayyyyyyy back somewhere in the mists of time you wrote about both that second position and the similar one you mentioned in your post.

The only real need for Powerbook 2010 to optimize a playing engine's opening strength is in engine vs engine play. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Powerbook will actually weaken an engine in competition against another engine, because it contains closed openings in which computers traditionally...

Players and computer chess afficionados can and do argue all day long about the best chess engine, free or otherwise.

IMO, your best (free) bets for this project would be either Crafty or Fruit; both are available at:

I am confused as to how to install the Opening Encyclopedia 2010 from ChessBase. 1) I have both ChessBase 9 and ChessBase 10 and I do not want to install the “ Reader .” a. Is the Reader required to install the Opening Encyclopedia 2010? 2) When I attempted to install the Opening Encyclopedia 2010,...

1) Definitely Windows 7. The whole Administrator thing has gotten entirely out of hand -- I shouldn't need my own computer's permission to be able to run programs properly. 2) If you put all elements (database, opg. book, etc.) on the hard drive, you won't need the DVD in the drive all the time, but...

I waited to reply because I wanted to see what everyone/anyone else would say. I know of no chess software which allows position entry/printing without Kings on the board.
