515 Igel 2.0.0 64 2650 - 0.0/0
101
I am curios why Igel 2.0.0 is used in this one as the latest version of Igel 2.4.0 is probably 200 elo stronger than 2.0.0?

Re: FGRL - rating lists April 1, 2020 - Defenchess 2.2, etc.

Thanks for testing Igel @fastgm.

I hope Igel 2.4.0 outranking Rybka 4.1 in 10m+6s list is not a 1st April joke :)

Re: Introducing Igel chess engine

Hey xr_a_y, Here's today results at LTC (8min+4sec) Igel 2.4.0 versus Minic 1.55 Good. I usually run my own regression suite of 500 games per opponent against a set of opponents (usually top 50 engines, tc=all/60+0.6 with tbs), this allows me to get an average elo increase estimate because the suite...

Re: Introducing Igel engine

Hey Werner, Is this name a good idea, as we have already Igel 2.4.0 :wink: Well, I don't know if it is possible to change the title of this thread, it was created long time ago when Igel was a weak 2600 elo engine, and no one was really interested in it (probably still the case), so the thread did n...

Re: Introducing Igel engine

Hello Wolfgang, Adjudication rules: - adjudicate game as lost when both (!) engines show -999 centipawns for 5 moves I think the adjudication of 999 cp is the trick that causes the games to end smoothly on your side. When I fixed the bug yesterday, I realized it was in a very specific condition: 1. ...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Hey Wolfgang, Thanks very much. I'll integrate it in my current tournament and report. May take 2 or 3 days to get a considerable number of games Thanks! Sounds like a plan :) I noticed that with ponder=on Igel is stronger by at least 100 elo more against Topple (also with ponder). Don't know if thi...

To my surprise, it is a (very) little faster than the one-file Minic.
You just discovered my secrete weapon of Igel against Minic all this time :mrgreen:

Re: New engine releases 2020

Hey Wolfgang, I've checked all the 800 games with 2.1.0 and 5'+3". Thanks for a thorough check and the time you spend on this. I've identified a bug in Igel and applied the fix. It has worked well in my manual test on 3 games against Topple, I am running 1000 games more to confirm with ponder=on in ...
