Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Chess.com is a for-profit enterprise. These 100+ people do not work for free. Chess.com is running this tournament because they believe it will have a positive return on investment by attracting eyeballs that will become paying customers. This is not a "friendly and free chess tournament". This is a...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

I find DrCliche attitude absolutely appalling. Yes, CCCC did multiple mistakes in setting up the event. Yes, for many of these they were informed in advance on this forum. Yes, before Erik stepped in the replies were kind of "aloof". But let's not forget that * Everything is completely free ! * The...

Finally, I've read through this thread and received some personal messages from Andrew from Ethereal with regards to the depth issues he presented here. I appreciate what he has shared and the passion he (and the rest of you!) bring to the game. We will absolutely take this seriously and look at wh...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Following right after, Nemorino vs Laser, Nemorino hangs a Queen for capture by a pawn, turning a 40+ply 0.00 into a mate in 6. Bizarre stuff. I didn't think it possible, but CCCC has reached profound new heights of absurdity. Shall I save kranium the trouble of responding? I do hope you can enjoy ...

Please contact me privately with your email for the full debug file, or more info. Regards, Norm I think many viewers would appreciate public logs, post mortem, and explanation for how you are addressing whatever hardware failure occurred in game 395 "Ethereal vs. Arasan" on move 59. I've examined ...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

The CPU engines will be the only engine running on the system, and will have full access to the processors (w/ 46 threads addressing 48 physical CPUs) while playing vs. Lc0 The machine in question supports 96 logical cores, while the CPU engines are being limited to 46 in all games. We all understa...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

It's fairly well known Carlos that most engines scale very poorly above 30-40 threads, with Elo gains almost flatlining, so allocating 90+ threads would be the real joke...a huge waste of resources. I believe this is outdated information. There's been a fair amount of testing over the past couple o...
