Re: a crying shame (re: self-learning engines)

Unfortunately, chess engines are lately focused on rating lists and TCEC, and everybody seems to be following the same paths. Even new GUIs are streamlined for eng-eng matches. I understand it fully, most programs are not commercial, and the authors are free to make their own choices, but as an ordi...

Re: New WCCC Version of The Baron Released (Plus Polyglot Opening Book)

I had problems installing the 32-bit version, but then I copied all the files from the zip file, and it worked under wine and Ubuntu 16.04. The evaluation is better in the early phases of the game, and The Baron 3.43 easily finds books move where the 3.42 version opted for other paths. I somehow fel...

In many openings, it's the engine the most likely to find book moves and to display a very human-like game. I do find the latest ve...

Re: Wasp 3.00 available ...

Frank, I followed your testing of Wasp 3.0 (and previous testing too), and I would like to suggest that you change the opponents for further testing especially since you tested Wasp exclusively against stronger opponents, and it could deflate its rating. I believe that testing Wasp against a wider r...
