Does it make sense to get Deep Rybka for blunder check purposes only?  In other words, for analyzing a completed game for possible tactical errors, does Deep Rybka provide an advantage over regular Rybka?

BTW, I currently use Fritz 11 and Chessbase 10, if that makes any difference.  I also only play over the board at a local chess club.

Thanks much for any information you can send my way.

I don't think it's necessary, for checking blunders even Crafty would do. Or in this case, Fritz 11 would suffice.

Well of course, a better tactical engine will better discover "deep" blunders... :cool:

Rybka 4 will find some deeper attacking tactics faster, but usually you want her for analysing middle games and so on. For finding easy blunders, there's no big difference. Although as a trainer, I would recommend you not to check just for tactical blunders, but to look for better plans and so on.

hi Felix,
very interesting! Can you elaborate a little bit on how to look for better plans with an engine?
Do you just look at the top 3 moves suggested in IA or how do you do it?

I just use single variation mode and exclude moves if I don't like them.

For looking for plans I go through the computer lines and try to understand why the best line is the best (strategic things (past pawns, active pieces...)? material (bishop pair, pawns)?). Usually you get an idea how to play a position by doing that.

Do you think you could do a video on this kind of "understanding the strategy" work?
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) [de] Date 2010-07-30 11:06
no, I don't want to produce videos :) I think what I said is enough, if you need further help, go to a chess club and ask a trainer to help you there :)
