Tip: the Chessify app on your mobile phone

(Apple and Android):

Chessify is a must-have tool for chess lovers.

It allows to scan and digitize chess diagrams from books, journals, pdf files,

or other sources with acceptable recognition efficiency,

which makes its scanner the best chess OCR tool (optical character recognition) in the market.

The app also allows the users to analyze the digitized positions either locally or on cloud servers for free.

The strongest chess engines are used for analysis, such as Stockfish 10.

The cloud Stockfish engine can be used for free at about 25.000 kN/s speed for 10 seconds.

If you want to play or analyze interesting chess positions and puzzles, Chessify is a perfect and free app for you.

Notably, you can also save the needed positions (FEN) in the app’s storage and share them with other chess applications.

At Chessbase.com there is a video by Grandmaster Karsten Müller where he explains the significance of Tablebases.

The introduction in the Chessbase newsletter about this:

"Revolutions in endgame theory" is the exciting title of a video Karsten Müller recorded on the occasion of the release of the new Endgame Turbo 5.
In this video, the endgame expert looks back to the beginnings of computer-assisted endgame analysis and links in his own analysis methods,
in which he also regularly integrates the "Syzygy" tablebases.

Of course, Müller does not pass over the opportunity to present some of the most spectacular discoveries made over the course of this development.
The 9th World Championship match between Karpov and Kasparov in 1984 is just one of many examples:
a whole series of winning proofs were developed for the position below for White - one of them by Karsten Müller himself.
And yet: they all turned out to be false, as we now know thanks to the tablebases!

Arpad Rusz has created Syzygy Endgame Explorer (SEE) which is software for mining the newly generated 7-man endgame tablebases.

The tool can not only find mutual zugzwangs but can also identify positions where interesting moves are the only winning ones

(like when a piece moves to a corner square or it is sacrificed).

His goal is to write a tool similar to CQL which searches tablebases instead of pgn files.

Look at his nice website for more information about it.

Mystery about composer J.Fauchner, as pointed out by Rainer Staudte.

Was it Julius Fauchner (1820-1878) who composed one in 1854?

Because most of the known studies are composed from 1995 to 2005 (published in Chess Life & Review) it seems to be someone else?

Yochanan Afek has written: Extreme Chess Tactics, where he uses many endgame studies as examples.

The book has 144 pages in 16 chapters with the following tactical themes:

Fork, Battery Play, Pinning and Unpinning, The Skewer, Deflection and Decoy, Trapping a Piece, Removing a Guard,

Line-Opening and Line Closing, Back-Rank Weakness, Pawn Promotion, Zwischenzug,

Devious Draws: Perpetual Check, Devious Draws: Stalemate, The Ultimate Goal: Mate, Combined Motifs.

Each Chapter has game-examples played by worldchampions and about 20 diagrams with exercises where a question or hint is given.

The solutions are explained very clearly.

Besides all over the board examples (a bit more than a half of the total exercises) are from world champions practice (men and women).

The rest are of players and solvers friendly endgame studies.

 

The book is recommended because many of the examples and exercises are taken from beautiful endgame studies !

The book starts with the famous finish of world champion Magnus Carlsen in 2016 against Kariakin (See below ...)

where he brings forward his own pattern recognition of a game played in Beltsy, 1979 between Popov and Novopashin,

where white even combined a deeper (5 moves in advance) same win.

He emphasize the importance of pattern-recognition in the process of training chess capabilities in general

and in improving tactical skills in particular.
