Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Why are people saying Houdini is the Champion when it is not in the Superfinal? ...My question is why LCZero is playing the superfinal, if Komodo was second in Premier Division? It should be Stockfish vs Komodo Because the games against Komodo MCTS were cancelled at the end (according to TCEC rules...

Re: Stockfish 10 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Given the error margins and limited development time (compared to the v8-v9 cycle) hardly strange. Thanks for commenting ! :D But precisely, the error margins make it hard to allow the +14 Elo to reach the announced +50 Elo...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

It seems that a good chunk of the benefit of 7 man TB is just the rook and 2p vs rook and p endgame plus the small KPPPkpp, which can be put on a fairly small SSD along with 6 man with no big cost of download or SSD.

Graham and I know each other on this Forum for many many years, and I am quite sure he is not upset. But just f...
