A newly published and original KQBNP vs kbn #3 chess problem generated by a computer program, Chesthetica, using the ‘DSNS’ computational creativity approach which does not use any kind of machine or deep learning. You can learn more about the DSNS here. The largest endgame tablebase in existence today is for 7 pieces (Lomonosov) which contains over 500 trillion positions, most of which have not been seen by human eyes. This problem with 8 pieces goes even beyond that and was therefore composed without any such help.

Chesthetica, especially if running on multiple computers or operating system user accounts, is capable of generating far too many compositions than can be published in a timely fashion here. The newer ones will therefore only be published some time later. This is why the composition date above does not match today’s date. White has a decisive material advantage in this position but the winning sequence may not be immediately clear. Leave a comment below, if you like.
