Re: Breakthrough draughts

Hi, Do you know the "breakthrough" draughts variant (I do not know if this is the correct wording)? You take the standard rules of the international draughts game but you decide that the first side with a king wins the game. With this rule the game becomes extremely difficult because you can see th...

Re: Breakthrough draughts

In 2003 we already played an experimental tournament with this rule, but with one difference: after a breakthrough the game continues, and the player with the king only wins when he survives. To put it in other words: a regular game is played and only when there is no winner, the victory goes to th...

Re: Electronic checker boards (over bluetooth)

It seems the DGT protocols are proprietary, but I hope the DGT team is sufficiently interested in having support from Android apps to share. I have contacted them, but no reply yet. Another interesting possibility is here . I don't know much about these board, but there must be bluetooth adapter do...

Re: Electronic checker boards (over bluetooth)

I don't know the details but IIRC there is already some infrastructure setup to display live tournaments from electronic boards and connect this to engines such as Sjende Blyn or Kingsrow. There is already software if you buy such a board. Thanks Rein. Do you know of other brands of eboards for che...

Re: Electronic checker boards (over bluetooth)

Hi Team, Long time no see! It has been a while since I was active on this forum. Most of my spare time recently has gone to developing features for Chess for Android, and I had particular fun implementing support for an electronic chessboard, in particular the Millennium ChesGenius Exclusive . But ...

Re: Handling search inconsistencies in MTD(f)

I was wondering if people using MTD(f) are aware of what happens when there are search inconsistencies (as a result of using a transposition table) and how to deal with these situations. I wrote a paper on the subject: http://www.maximusdraughts.org/research/Handling%20Search%20Inconsistencies%20in...

Re: A challenge in analysing a recent world championship game

Hi Krzysztof, Did you try to analyse this game with the various programs you have? What are your results for the different programs? Hi Gerard, Kingsrow, Dream, Aurora Borealis and also Truus have this option to find the bad(s) move(s). Yes of course but what results? Gerard, could you post the dia...

Fraaie overwinning Tsjizjov op Georgiev! Mooi herstel van Martijn van IJzendoorn! Wie wint er nou van Virny? Kan Wouter Wolff het eindspel tegen Baljakin nog remise houden? Te vrezen valt dat hij nog bezwijkt. Virny heeft als een van de weinige Russen een behoorlijk aantal nederlagen tegen Nederlan...

Re: Breakthrough Draughts

Hi Gerard, Is it possible for you to modify your routine so as to print the capture positions after the last generation pass? And then drop them for the final compression stage? Or would this be a too invasive change of your generator? Rein I don't quite understand your question. Basically my routi...
