Following on a rather quiet period in November (related to working pretty much seven days a week!), the last few weeks have thrown up a number of interesting finds. In addition to this, I have been rebuilding my Projects actions list but more on that in another article!
Next Chess Move
A very interesting site which allows access to an online processor or for a price a high spec machine. This in itself is interesting but what is more so is that a copy of LCZero is available to be queried. This combined with a high spec machine throws up some interesting opportunities.
A new(ish) piece of Software. The main benefit obtained by utilising this is in finding Trick moves. These are hard to find moves which require a specific response from your opponent.
This is a side project of LCZero to create an Endgame database. This is not as exact as a Tablebase but extends up to a higher number of pieces and can add significantly in this region.
MZ Chess Forum (http://mzchessforum.altervista.org/)
I have mentioned this forum in the past but in my opinion, it is the best online reference point, with great resources available.
Deep Position Analysis https://github.com/zeFresk/deep-position-analysis
This is an interesting development project which will develop, well read the description.
That’s enough for now! See you again in Jan 2019!
