    Hello.

    Can anyone show me a free engine that can analyse impossible positions? (for example, a position with 20 queens)
    Sadly my Houdini refuse to analyse these kind of positions...

    Thanks in advance.

    What you ask for is impossible.

    I say that is crazy. Why would you even want such an engine, if the positions are impossible?
