I am asking this because Stockfish was accepting different FEN strings through the terminal inbetween a game, of which it is giving best moves. I have compiled Stockfish in the Ubuntu 19.04 terminal.

  • How do you know it was giving best moves btw? Sep 28, 2019 at 23:25
  • bcoz that what it does. hahaha, for that, you need to understand how these chess engines thinks, hopefully after studying this, all your doubts will be cleared.

In Chessbase you can have Stockfish analyzing/playing in multiple boards. It's definitely possible to do this, but it slows Stockfish down since it's being overworked. So it'll take longer to search ahead in each game.
