Well, great start for Myrddin drawing Amyan! Hopefully that's not the end of its luck. :lol:

Re: Swiss Tournament Ed.VIII. Group C.

Wow! Quite surprising performance for Myrddin, considering I haven't done anything with it in over four years. Between Group C and Graham's, its CCRL rating might go up...well...a point. :D

Now I get to watch it be completely destroyed in Group B. :P

Re: Swiss Tournament Ed.VIII. Group C.

Can't believe Myrddin has an outside chance to promote, given its first very unlucky draw to Protej. Very exciting! :-)

But it looks a bit silly...
No sillier than some endgames (or even conversion to endgames) from engines using endgame tablebases....

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney May

Hi HG,

I'd like Myrddin to participate this month (and hopefully not disconnect). Myrddin will be logged in, but I may not be home in time to join the tournament. If so, could you do it for me, please?

Thanks!

I recall that one thing I tried when I was having a similar problem (or, at least, I suspected there was something wrong with repetition detection), was not saving positions to the TT that were given a draw score due to repetition. I think it pointed me in the right direction, but it was so long ago...

Re: Possible "real" hash collision

Is everybody else engine seeing the only good move for white (Qf5) ? or after Kh2 the good move for black Rf7 ? Even Myrddin, a much weaker engine than Minic, sees that Qf5 is best after only a few seconds, and gives it a draw score. It takes even less time than that, after Kh2, to see that Rf7 giv...

Re: Stockfish is Killing LC0 ........W O W..............

ATM, I'm seeing LC0 up to 12.0 to 10.0 after 22 games. Unless I'm looking in the wrong place, that is definitely not a "killing".
