Deep Position Analysis


With deep position analysis Hiarcs Engine generates a detailed analysis tree for this position. You can determine how deep and broad the tree should be and what moves should be included or excluded from the analysis. Sure, you can select the time spent for each move and for the root position.
 

Menu: Tools Analysis Deep position analysis

This function is used to analyse a specific position. It is very good for getting deep and detailed analysis of a critical position, and especially interesting for correspondence players.

With deep position analysis Fritz generates a detailed analysis tree for this position. You can determine how deep and broad the tree should be and what moves should be included or excluded from the analysis.

Time/depth: The precision of the analysis is determined by time available per move, or by the fixed calculation depth you allocate. Time per move is more flexible since it allows Fritz to go much deeper in certain positions (e.g. in the endgame).

Plus (root) allows you to add extra time or search depth to the root position, so that it is analysed more deeply than positions that occur in the search.

Branching: The branching factors for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd moves define how many alternative moves are given. The higher the values, the broader the analysis tree. However, Fritz may change the branching factor if it thinks the position merits that. This is dependent on the evaluation window described below. If there are moves present after the position these will always be considered.

Branching: White, Black, both determines whether alternatives should be given for one or both sides. Example: you want to show that in a certain position White is winning by force. Then you are not too interested in white alternatives and should set branching for Black only.

Length of variations: sets the length of analysed variations.

Evaluation window: This value, given in 100ths of a pawn, determines when Fritz will discard a variation. The value 80, for instance, means that moves which are 0.8 pawns worse than the best move will not be investigated any further, even if the branching factor would allow it.

At the end of deep position analysis Fritz will sort all the variations it has generated and make the strongest moves the main line. 

*Tip from chesskit is to use this function after clearly understanding each and every parameter that can be set. It is also useful to try with minimum time or minimum depth first to see the type of analysis produced before going ahead with actual time per move or depth. The total length of variation coupled with branching and time /  depth will determine the total duration of analysis. Getting greedy to get too much out of this without acknowledging the computer systems limitation of hardware will only result in an unpleasant crash!

*TIP > Practice reading the analysis to imagine the position of all the pieces at the end of every single variation. If it is difficult, go below and practice one by one until all of them are fixed in the mind. Then come back here and verify if you can read the analysis and understand it again.
