Strategic Test Suite consists of series of themed test suites designed to evaluate chess engine's long term understanding of strategical and positional concepts.

We have had dozens of test suites. A lot of them are tactical in nature.  This tool is unique innovation in computer chess, more  specifically in test suites department, since nobody has ever attempted to design the test suite like we do!

Most EPD's in STS have immediate short term advantage in strategy. It could be called tactical Strategy (or threatening moves). Strategy has numerous elements. A lot of them are ordinary plans with no significant plus in evaluation -- they are ignored. Only those plans with definite plus in evaluation are recorded in STS.

Ofcourse, Thanks to CEGT, SSDF, Chessbase, CCRL. UEL etc for making their games freely available for download.
