This account is integrated with the Crafty chess software for Linux. It is used by the chessgames.com administrators to provide automatic computer analysis of games.
How to interpret Crafty analysis:
♙ "Nodes" is the number of nodes analyzed to reach its conclusion (measured in millions.)
♙ "Ply" indicates the depth of the search, in half-moves.
E.g., "Depth 14 ply" means that all possibilities for the next 7 moves
have been considered by Crafty.
♙ A numerical evaluation is shown. Positive numbers mean that White is winning; negative numbers, Black is winning. A difference of 1.00 is one pawn of value.
♙ After several moves a symbolic evaluation is provided:
+- White has a decisive advantage
-+ Black has a decisive advantage
± White stands better
∓ Black stands better
⩲ White has a slight edge
⩱ Black has a slight edge
= Game is equal
Crafty is a direct descendent of Cray Blitz, the World Computer Champion from 1983 to 1989. You can see some games played by Crafty on our Crafty (Computer) page.
NOTE: Crafty is good, but not always 100% correct! Use Crafty as a tool for analysis, not as the final word.
