Re: No more ultimaiq SF compiles?

Now there is 24.4. version. It has finally analysis contempt switch: on/off/white/black and some TB fixes also for MV mode. My first match against H6 was won by 60,5% meaning +74 ELO.

Re: Too much LCZero

I feel that LCZero is waste of time and money. Because 1) we already have 800 ELO stronger engine Stockfish and 2) even Google cannot beat SF convincingly with it's resources. Still I hope to be wrong :) . BTW when playing LCZero at http://play.lczero.org/ it always moves similarly.

Re: Stockfish finds some old vey hard positions

SF is slowly but steadily improved and is now better problem solver than Houdini. Houdini (default) can be better now only in some weird made-up endgame positions.

Re: Stockfish wins TCEC

Stockfish seems to scale very well because I get same 59% score in 60s + 0,6s games. TCEC games use at least 2400x more CPU time. No diminishing returns? BTW Premium league round 67 one game is still missing. Ginkgo - Houdini and it was about 251 moves - may be cutechess crashed?

Re: Stockfish wins TCEC

SF is winning by +60 ELO edge. Surprisingly I got same edge in 1 hour 1000 games bullet match! 3 weeks wasted :) ?

Re: Stockfish 180113 - Initial position until depth 66

In TCEC Premium league has 7 bookless openings. SF played 3x d4 3x e4 1x Rf3 no c4 at all!
