   Dec-10-17 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
devere: < AylerKupp: It's unfortunate that the DeepMind developers decided to cripple Stockfish 8 by disabling its opening book and tablebase support. These two items are, after all, part of Stockfish. The results might not have been any different but this just raises questions as to ...
   Dec-07-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
devere: An astonishing game of chess. It seems that AlphaZero may be rated 4000.
   Nov-26-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
devere: <Oh well, FIDE is FIDE.> To err is human. To really foul things up you need FIDE (Fédération Incompétent des Échecs).

devere: Poll of 3000 likely voters shows Moore leading by 6%, but Jones still within striking distance. MOE=2%

   Nov-11-17 A Chandra vs W So, 2016 (replies)
devere: <diagonalley: wow! what a game! ...> <diagonalley> <claims 0.05 of a point for getting the first two moves :-)>> If you got the first two moves you did exactly as well as Wesley So, so you score 100%.
   Oct-31-17 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
devere: I like Kramnik, but on the whole MVL would be a slightly more deserving choice. But if the organizers were determined to choose a Russian, Kramnik was the best Russian to choose.
   Oct-30-17 R Zysk vs A Huss, 1987 (replies)
devere: Easy problem on Sunday, mate in 9 on Monday, is civilization as we know it coming to an end?
   Oct-29-17 K Harandi vs Balashov, 1979 (replies)
devere: 18...c5 19.f5 c4 20.h3 Bg5 -+ This may be the easiest Sunday problem ever.
