r2qrbk1/1b3pp1/pn3n1p/1P2N3/4P3/p6P/1BBN1PP1/R2QR1K1 w - - 0 20

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

Maybe our expectations from Lc0. It's possible that Lc0 with 11xxx nets were already close to A0 on the same hardware. It's possible that A0 was tactically weak (extremely weak in tactical test-suites) and weak in endgames too, like Lc0. It's possible that using a tricky book for SF8 with exits to ...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

Your guess is not a good one. If they did what you guess, they wouldn't write anything. Why bother writing at all? It takes a lot more effort to write what they did than to release a data file. Releasing a data file takes ZERO effort. What do you think happens if more info is released? What would c...

Would this position would be covered by the tablebase with white having 6 pieces and black having 8?
No. Current endgame tables are for no more than 7 pieces total, including both kings.
Oooh...thanks! Shows how much I know about that!

Re: Analysis help for those with the processing power

Thanks!....still zeros it is for the holy grail type quest. I did look at it again with the latest update and confirmed that 9 c4 has no chance so at least that can be ruled out. Id say the favorite is 9 Nf5 d5 10 Nxe7 Nxe7 11 c3 Nc5 12 Bc2 Bf5 ...and then the *latest* appears to be 13 b4 Bxc2 14 Qx...
