I don't know about Zillions specifically, but it's a reasonably good strategy in most games to maximise your own flexibility of action while minimising your opponent's. This is certainly true for chess; there are competent chess engines (ie. strong enough to beat an amateur consistently) which use only material value and mobility for evaluation. The Beale ...

There is no perfect answer here. First, and it is for a reason, FIDE says that you need 9 games to have an established rating, but the USCF says you need 25. Obviously, the more games, the closer the rating will be to accurate. That said, to really get a more accurate rating, you also need to vary the competition, and have it play against various rated ...

Something very similar is doubtless encoded into AlphaZero and Leela's neural network evaluators, which are very positional. Most conventional Minimax engines, by contrast, are stronger at tactics and can therefore search very deeply. Pawn structure is indeed a factor in most of the top engines' evaluation. This might take the relatively simple form of ...

TLDR: No Reasoning: Quantum Computers in the short to medium term only have some very specific things efficiently (factoring and discrete log and a few others). The algorithm google showed "quantum supremecy" on is basically simulating a random quantum circuit to generate random numbers, which is about as favorable an algorithm as you could imagine ...

Part of this can be accomplished with Chessbase GUI. There is an option called cloud analysis. It is thougt to use engines in the cloud additional to your own engine. It ever could be used with two local engines, one determining the 1-n main variants, the other to evaluate the variants. A third engine could make proposals for answers to the main moves and so ...

Check out the Zillions clone and learn for yourself. http://www.chessv.org/ Even just a simple material eval function beats the majority of players.

Another method for exporting games from DroidFish is: Enter the game on a new board Long press the "M", then choose "File", then "Save game to PGN file". Create a new file if you don't have one already This file can be found on your device's storage under /DroidFish/pgn. I accessed it with AirDroid but you could use any file manager app or even USB ...
