Duda ended Carlsen's classical OTB unbeaten run today in the kind of tactical mess where he excels.

Supposedly Kortchnoi used to say that it is not possible to beat the theory of probability forever.

Re: Piece values

My formula is number of reachable squares equals piece value points. A checking piece is infinity/2 and a mating piece is infinity/1
