Lomonosov is the first complete 7-piece endgame database that includes 100%
accurate results for every single position possible within this
seven piece limitation. This new limit has just gone up from
six pieces... to seven!
Experts didn’t expect 7-piece endings to be cracked and
catalogued until after 2015. Convekta Ltd
programmers Zakharov and Makhnichev (the developers of
the Aquarium interface) managed to solve this task in
only six months using a new algorithm designed specifically
for this purpose and run on the Lomonosov supercomputer
based in the Moscow State University. In the position
below, black moves first and will be checkmated in 545 moves.
