Re: Throwing out draws to calculate Elo

Take Cfish, and make two copies, naming one Purple and the other Gold. That's still trying to hit nails with a shoe. You're the only person in the world that has attempted to use LOS to measure the difference between identical engines with names changed. That you already know have the same Elo. It'...

Re: TCEC Question

( There is no point testing engines strength in one specific line/ position again and again). As I said, people put tremendous work into their chess lines, you may have a decent book and use it for 3 days and have people already developed counter-lines against whatever you have. Lines keep evolving...

Re: TCEC Question

Very interesting. I presume it is pretty much all quick play games? This has been observed in 20 minutes +3 seconds time controls. Note that the trend was the opposite back in July 2019, back then Leela was queen, and the openings that were the strongest in Stockfish clones vs Stockfish clones game...

Re: Test position: Lc0 vs Stockfish, TCEC 18, game 65

This just shows that computer chess has reached a level of understanding that humans simply cannot follow. I consider myself quite a strong player and when I look at games between say Magnus Carlsen and Caruana ... I pretty much understand almost every move they make and can predict the majority of...

Re: Throwing out draws to calculate Elo

Oh yeah, to make it clear LOS means "it's this likely that this entity's Elo is higher than this other entity's Elo", and no draws are needed to say that.

Re: Complete engine configuration

I still think that printing "right-click text to make things happen" would be a better solution than underlining everything in the window. So you'd rather have that message appearing than making clear text can be clicked? That's fine. I'll just go ahead and show a well designed UI from years gone b...

Re: Throwing out draws to calculate Elo

I don't think I have ever been more sure of anything in my life. So now it becomes very interesting, if you ever see the light, if from all the people participating in this thread, I were the one that made you see it. You continue to run simulations where all opponents are equal. LOS wasn't designe...

Re: TCEC Question

Arguably you could find a bunch of starting positions that favor Lc0 by nature...run things again and get a different result. People have been trying to do that at Playchess. It turns out that when the people with Lc0 try to play the best openings for Leela and the people with Stockfish clones try ...

Re: BrainLearn

Putting the blame on others for your engine not working the way it should If the feature works as intended, but it doesn't work in the InfinityChess GUI, it's clear it's the GUI that is messing something up, if the GUI's programmer made engines work like in other GUIs, the learning would work in th...
