  Pyke: Re <Fake accounts> How? And more importantly, why? I am sure I am missing some vital info here ... ;-)

Hope all is well with you, <Whiteshark>.

P.S.: Fake accounts, I somehow became a believer that <CG> should really enforce a ONE account per person only policy.

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <Pyke> These are fake account as they (almost) never kibitzed, didn't put any infos in the box nor did the barely come back again. I think ceegee created most of them back then to push the numb3rs of registered users to attract potential investors.

  whiteshark: <relative value of chess pieces>
Premium Chessgames Member
  parisattack: Interesting...thanks for posting.

I wonder how Berliner arrived at his evaluations?

Some extra for the synergy of 2Bs?

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <parisattack: I wonder how Berliner arrived at his evaluations?>

In the intro of chapter 1 he wrote:

"This description of [values of /ws] advantages is based on:

a) 30 years of top US over-the­ board chess play;

b) The most outstanding record in world-class correspondence chess ever compiled;

c) Extensive experience in im­plementing these ideas for computer use."

<Some extra for the synergy of 2Bs?> There is no explicit mention of it in the book.

When reading over this chapter you get an idea of how dynamic these (relative) values are, always depending on the specific circumstances.
