Re: An idea for new Handicap games for dragon

Anyway I wanted to share a lc0 j92-330 defeat with 10 nodes/move, which should simulate blitz 2900 elo FIDE or 2600 elo rapid FIDE (!!) However, I don't think lc0 simulated the human well here: [Event "?"] [Site "?"] [Date "2020.11.28"] [Round "?"] [White "Player"] [Black "Player"] [Result "1-0"] [...

Re: An idea for new Handicap games for dragon

I'd like to see a human win a match (not a single game), with faster time control but the same odd. However, I doubt that such a competition can be created, I believe few would really be interested, unless it becomes popular like with the komodo challange, up to play against komodo boss, even withou...

Re: Dragon versus Nakamura

One way to justify more handicap is by playing FRC. In Fischer Random,the human is out of the comfort zone and has to extemporize from scratch. Based on my testing, Dragon is nearly on par Stockfish in FRC. So Dragon is not necessarily weaker in Fischer Random. Yes, CCRL has already confirmed our o...

Re: Dragon vs GM Nakamura Analog Handicap Match

I do think now that Dragon will crush Penguin at Knight handicap at 1+1 ! Incredible performance from Kromodo. I am NOT too sure about that Humans under pressure blunder, but a Knight is a Knight and if penguin is at least 2450 he might beat Komodo MCTS as long as he keep a fortress up to the point...

Re: Dragon vs GM Nakamura Analog Handicap Match

Dragon games look so crazy.
Maybe I don't have the right understanding of chess

Re: Dragon by Komodo Chess

I would like to see penguin against Komodo at Bullet. It would be great ! What would you think would be a fair match? Knight odds at 1' + 1" perhaps? I think it would be great, very interesting if many games were played in order to have a clearer view of the result and to get Andrew used the odds a...

Re: Dragon by Komodo Chess

Hi Larry, Is there any chance of NNUE specialized for losing positions for use in handicap matches? We actually did include some such positions in the training which might help a bit in such matches, probably not a lot though. The problem is that if the handicap is high enough to give humans a good...

Re: Komodo 14.1 Release and Dragon Announcement

Why changing the name?!? That is never a good idea IMHO. Komodo is a long-used and well known name with reputation. And because Komodo is commercial, it is a brand, too. Whats so bad about "Komodo 15 NNUE" ? Or just Komodo 15 ? Stockfish is still named Stockfish, even though it is using nnue-nets, ...
