Re: Lc0 ... the GOOD and the BAD

Recently got interested again in computer chess after analyzing some of A0 games. Decided to try out Lc0 and see what all the fuss is about. Initially results with Lc0 were not good as it lost pretty handily to even SF7, but with faster GPU things turned around dramatically and even SF latest Dev g...

Re: Lc0 with latest test30 nets is vastly superior positionally

This doesn't surprise me although its good to have some data showing it. As you said, its tactically that Lc0 has some weakness which gives it a little human like behaviour where it can loose in 25 moves tactical combination to SF dev and the following game show a positionnal master piece vs SF dev...

Re: Chess analysis software

Fritz has had this for a long time (see http://help.chessbase.com/Fritz/15/Eng/index.html?000017.htm). --Jon I think he means voice commentary that you can listen to. Otherwise, yes Chessbase / Fritz has had this for years. I used to post my wishes for such a thing, but i was asking for something m...

Re: ? I thought that Carlsen is the best Blitz player?

It would be more interesting to see him struggle and have to prove himself again, not just sit on it till old age.
Like this, he'll just bow out suddenly and do something else, and he'll say he wanted to step aside.

Re: Who pays for chess engines today?

Out of 8 top engines most are free. Strongest engine is free. Every move found by Houdini will also be found by either Stockfish, Ethereal, Andscacs or Leela. So who are the people who still pay? I like to pay on a one-time-basis for the top top engine that is also very user friendly and durable fo...
