Longest against Leela

While I am quite fond of its slow positional style, I am not too happy with its ability to aggressively attack after gaining both significant positional and material advantage. It leads to a somewhat boring game generally speaking. I continue to think that the descendent will re-emphasize the attack...

Banksia question - disabling the intended move arrow of the opponent

Is there a way to disable that?

I'd rather the opponent's move be a surprise with no information provided during its thinking.

Re: endgame tablebases for leela

Alas, I just looked at it and they are only up to the 6-men tablebases.

I'll need to put all this on a largish external drive to get the 17 tb of the 7-men tablebases
in addition to the existing 150gb-160gbish 6-men tablebases.

Re: endgame tablebases for leela

Thanks - I found I already had them up in the cloud and have linked the cloud link to my Banksia+Leela combo on the two Mac's. Looking good now. It's about 161gb so hopefully that's about right.

Re: Leela avoids taking a pawn early on

If people don't say the modern Leela and other programs can play like Tal did and more accurately, I've been sold by this one experience on the issue. Wild.

endgame tablebases for leela

Hi,

Recently I was able to get leela running with banksiagui on a couple of mac's but without endgame tablebases.

My question is where/how can I get the endgame tablebases?

Thanks.

Re: Leela

All of this is solved here. Have latest Leela with a recently network 1 up on two Mac's running Catalina. One is the 2017 Mac 13" and the other is the 109 Mac 16". So now I have some good sparring partners as I am doing an enormous amount of travel and there's nothing like killing time than chess. -...

Re: Leela

The good news is, however, upon restart, Banksia restarted lc0 at the previous position and the game has continued. Still, the crash concerns... This is with all the default settings, no time changes, etc. I was away from the playing area for about an hour when I came back and saw the crash. Have pl...
