Re: Lazy SMP ideas

I'll check out your new engine and run a match against RomiChess and report the results.

Yes, my idea has some thin resemblance to NN engines in the sense that the ratio or difference becomes a measure of probability! :D

Re: An idea for a combination of stockfish and lc0

I suggest the following idea. The program start by using lc0 for p1% of the time when p1 is a parameter and find the best move that lc0 suggest. Later the program decide to have a bias of p2 centi-pawns for the best move(p2 is also a parameter). Later the program use stockfish with (100-p1)% of the...

Re: Romi-Carlsen vs Romi-Caruana for entertainment only

On the bright side, I think the prediction of 12 draws may not be such a bad one for the upcoming match... Looking at the games to me it does seem like RomiCaruana looks a bit more like Caru's play and RomiCarlsen like Carlsen's play, but I am not sure if that may be placebo. Maybe I should cover u...

Re: Romi-Carlsen vs Romi-Caruana for entertainment only

All games are threefold :) Yes, I don't understand what is happening. I'm starting to suspect a conspiracy! :lol: Maybe it has something to do with the slow time limit. I've never tested Romi on such a slow time limit before. I'm guessing that Romi searching 10 to 13 ply deeper is eliminating most ...

Re: Romi-Carlsen vs Romi-Caruana for entertainment only

Game 8 Score 4 - 4 Another draw. Though in game 9 which is underway RomiCaruana played the Petroff. Romi's learning algorithm slightly penalizes all moves of drawn games. That is why various openings are being tried. If by some chance RomiCaruana should win game 9 then that opening should become fix...

Re: Romi-Carlsen vs Romi-Caruana for entertainment only

Game 6 Score 3 - 3 Yes, another draw and game 7 also was a draw. Seems that RomiCarlsen and RomiCaruana are very closely matched, lol.

Re: Romi-Carlsen vs Romi-Caruana for entertainment only

Game 5 Score 2.5 - 2.5 Not a very exciting match so far. However, it may be predictive of the upcoming world championship match in two respects, opening selection and results as it would make sense for both contestants to not go all out for a win right from the start. [Event "Carlsen vs Caruana"] [S...
