Dirty Harry strikes again
In the sixth round of our online town championship I won my first – and a thrilling – game with the black pieces. Again I played on a DGT board connected to the server with DGT Live Chess on my Apple M1.
In the opening I chose the Dirty Harry Sicilian, a nice surprise weapon not only in blitz or rapid games. Perhaps it’s also playable in «over the board» tournament games at our level. I won’t tell you too much about the lines here. The repertoire was developed by «ChessExplained» Christof Sielecki. The theory and the interesting story behind its birth is available at chessable.com.
A nice win against the Caro Cann
5th round of our online town championship, second win. Again I played with my DGT chess board and DGT Live Chess and had no technical problems.
Four new engines for the M1 and
two three updates:
Honey family updated to version 13.1b, the bug seems to be fixed. Here are the binaries for apple-silicon:
Bad luck and good luck
My fourth game in the online town championship was a roller coaster: A typical Leningrad Dutch opening, quite interesting maneuvers and a finish, where we both missed a win.
Tools for PGN files
Two Three tools for extracting information and/or manipulating large pgn files. Especially pgn-extract did impress me. From lichess I downloaded a file (213 GB!) for later training a NN. It took close to 12h on a single CPU but I was able to extract around 5 GB of games, filtering time control between 900 and 3600 seconds plus dividing the files into the ECO codes A – E.
(Update:) Someone asked for the uci-analyser, here you go:
