Has anyone got a link to an (objective, if possible) report of what happened with Andrew Paulson, Nigel Short etc - as it seems I have a lot to catch up on! Some of the chess news sites have...

Re: Computer chess

It is a bit rich having to buy DVD’s in order to learn to use the program properly You don't HAVE to buy anything. There's a huge (239 pages!) manual on the disk in pdf format, and an extensive help file in the program itself (neither of which, in my experience, do people look at before contactin...

Re: Fritz 13 query :: playing back variations

Hit the "infinite analysis" button. This will start the engine thinking on the current board position until you stop it. If you make a move, the engine will instantly start analysing the new position.

There's a host of other analysis functions. Check out the help files for "analysis" first of all...

Re: Shredder 9 Running on Windows 7

Does anyone know if Shredder 9 should run on Windows 7 or not? It appears to install successfully. It then (as expected) asks for the CD the first time it is run. Then it says the CD in the drive is the wrong one, when it isn't. It's not clear to me whether this is a Windows 7 problem (so I need to...

I may be wrong, but I would guess that should do it.
