Main page                                                MY POSITIONAL TEST SUITE

The positions are from several numbers of the excellent Swedish chessmagazine SCHACKNYTT (chessnews). 10 minutes for each position and you get points from the Movepoints table. The positions are tested on eight human players with an average rating of 2310. They scored in average 130 points. Analyses and comments to the positions you can find here. You can also download the games from where the positions are in cbh-format, with analyses and comments. Now you can get the positions in an epd-file.
