Re: Stockfish play very decent giving pawn odds.........

For anyone who's curious, they'll be setting Stockfish to 100 contempt, with 16GB hash. Built from the latest (tonight's?) master.

Re: Opening Variety is dead

Remember when poker was just people playing super tight? And then it got flooded with people betting super crazy all the time because they decided that was the best way to win?

That's what's going to happen here.

Long Live Opening Variety!

Re: What is discord?

You know the thing, where you go into a chat room, and everybody's just there concurring with each other?

Re: LC0 autoconfigure would be nice.

I've just given up and am going for defaults at home. I don't think it would ever be worth the time to figure them all out, and optimize them, rather than just running my analyses longer. For the CCC (where they're trying to squeeze out maximum strength), we have "options" : [ {"name" : "WeightsFile...
