Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

As to whether players (both OTB and correspondence players) would prefer no castling or a missing pawn to compensate draw odds, my opinion is that most would accept no castling more readily than missing pawn. No castling requires the other side to attack, while missing pawn requires the superior si...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

In Standard Chess this difference is +52 Elo points in 400 games, significantly smaller than +69 of the NBC Chess.

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

I am on the phone and TeamViewer now, but the result with Contempt = 75 White Contempt = True is almost identical: 60+0.6 White wins: 99/200 Draws: 94/200 Black Wins: 7/200 The openings were built with the White Contempt = 50 (and no Black castling), so I would not worry too much about them. An int...

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

I have an even simpler modification, but with a scoring modification in addition. Only Black is not allowed to castle and the Draws are adjudicated as Black wins.
