Re: McCain X1 Source Available

We now have some Windows and macOS exe's. Thank's a lot, Michael, especially for White's and Black's contempt instead of sidewise "Defensive"- Option, numeric contempt for both sides, in game- playing mode too, is somwhat easier to understand to me. BTW, tried Monge-compile x64 only, works well wit...

Re: ShashChess

BTW it seems as for popct.- compile, that tbs- usage cannot be switched off by Syzygy Probe Limit 0, when MCTS is on. And could it be, that working of MCTS- learning files depends on wether the opening moves are stored in a .pgn too or not? It seems to me, at positions without move history leading ...

Re: SF10 blunder??

Leelas eval is in win percentage, so it actually dropped after 42. Rc2 (SF also shows a slight plus for some reason) and shot up to 90% after 43 Rc1. I trust your judgment but Rc2 prepares Rf3 defending the pawn; I assume there are some tactical tricks that both engines missed? Ah, didn't see LC0's...
