Vysvětlující analýza šachových partií

The aim of this thesis is to design and implement an explanatory analysis of chess games. This analysis was created on the basis of a chess engine. As there are many great, freely available and open-source chess engines, this thesis does not focus on the implementation of a new one. Instead, existing chess engines were studied and compared. The most suitable one for this thesis was selected and an extension was designed for it. This extension provides an explanatory explanation of the quality of individual moves and entire chess games. This extension has been implemented, tested and evaluated.
