Absentee: <Sally Simpson: Also the player seeking the win may be at +0.50+ but is willing to accept -0.50 just so long as the position is complicated enough to give his opponent a tough series of only moves to find.> It doesn't quite work like that. When an engine evaluates a position ...

Absentee: <SirRuthless: Players have different styles.> Yes, some play better than others.

Absentee: <bugabay: So that makes you a better fan than me because I gave no material things on Wes behalf besides my full support to his success????> That's funny. Your "full support" consists in empty words?

Absentee: <SirRuthless: <plang> Aiming for dry positions with some weakened pawn structure he can grind on is his plan. It seems to be his only plan. It works effectively vs certain players who are scared of him and old men...> Evidently the rest of the chess world is either old ...
