    for higher ratings, it takes effort and concentration.

    if you think 9 dollars is a high price for 290 pages large format and over 500 diagrams within, as well as featuring 5 times more chess knowledge terms any other
    book has presented, then you might easily skip the buy.
    No worries bud, I'll leave it with you.

    Please come back after you have proved it in rated games. I couldn't imagine a better proof of your system.

    this takes time though, at least 2 or 3 years to get a GM title.
    alternatively, I could play a match against Stockfish or Komodo chess engines, win the match,
    and then you will be convinced.

    anyway, I had a nice stay here, thanks to all well-inclined and ill-inclined kangaroos for their feedback.

    "if you're a 2200 player who studies a lot and doesn't play, you're still a 2200 player. Sure maybe you understand things that the GMs don't. The chess world is full of people who think they know more than GMs, but just can't seem to produce the results to prove it."

    So true, road runner.

    If you could do this under properly controlled conditions (arbiter, video, no possibility of looking up programs while playing) I'd be very impressed. But I don't think that will ever happen.

    I'd also be impressed, subject to KB's caveats about it being demonstrably genuine. But someone with a good knowledge of computer chess algorithms and plenty of practice can optimise their play against them and be confident of not getting too many surprises. In terms of demonstrating the viability of a technique valid for practical tournament play I would rather see a demonstration against a range of human players.

    OK, just play in any FIDE-rated tournament of 9+ rounds with an average rating around your last published rating, and score a 2600 performance.
