Re: ChessTricks v6.0

No tricks. However, this is what is shown on "Ideas for white": https://funkyimg.com/i/2XtA7.png Interestingly, the best move appears ranked second by its score, and Bh2 appears with a 100% score, but it only shows this move and nothing else (so it remains a mystery why isn't Bh2 the best move). Th...

Re: ChessTricks v6.0

Hey, I just tried ChessTricks out. I picked "All Variations" and after 1 hour of analysis it came up with a line. It says it had analyzed 51 variations, yet it only displays one? Is there a way to check the other 50 variations that it checked out to see what it found about them? Now I'm afraid to c...

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

It's likely a draw with best play <Snip> How can people object then to SF's evalution of 0.00? Because an evaluation of 0.00 isn't useful. An engine that shows 0.00 for all moves that are "a draw with best play" is useless, and in practice it'd play really weak. If the position is drawn with best p...

Re: Arasan test suite - draft version

I analyzed all of these positions with ChessTricks to test my new High Dynamic Complexity Detection feature. The way ChessTricks analyze a position (Analyze for Tricks and Ideas) is it first does a regular fixed depth search then a MultiPV=2 fixed depth search for every legal moves in the position(o...

Re: Stockfish patches

The problem is Stockfish maintainers seem to be trigger happy with any microscopic elo gainer heuristic patch, but when it comes to bug fixes, that pr sits there for weeks. The problem is that people often disagree what constitutes a bug (is showing a +5 score in a draw position a bug?). Moreover i...

... For analysis, this makes Lc0 much more useful, as you never know when to stop analyzing with SF, and no two people will reach the same conclusions.
On the other hand Lc0 is close to useless for analysis because it doesn't give 0.00 evaluation on drawn positions, not even tb draw positions.
