(how computer sees a chess game)
I hope y’all are having a nice Yud Shvat.
Very nice (visually) computer chess player. (As far as skill, it’s not too great — I won without too much effort, and I am nowhere near a decent player; plus, I haven’t played chess for a long time, having switched from it to the greatest board game ever invented.)
This web-site illustrates very nicely the idea of framework of nodes and choices (all roads lead to Rome; all choices lead to Mashiach) and also why Go is so much cooler than chess.
Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe uses the moshol of chess to explain the hashgacha protis – bechira dichotomy.
