Re: A look back at the Engine Crackers

Thanks for your tests.

They document that the strongest engines show quite different solution behavior, although they have the same creator...

Numbers 3, 5, 7, 10, 15 are now too easy for the latest generation of engines. I guess I will have to remove them from the crackers.

Re: OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Thanks for the info. That's what I thought too. But it probably also contains millions of blitz games from strong players, right? Next question: Are you using Chessbase? Or Scid? Is the handling with 30 million games a problem?

OM GOLEM database with 30 mio games

Does anyone here have the OM GOLEM database on their computer?
https://www.openingmaster.com/index.php/chess-databases
If yes: How is its quality (duplicates, bye games, game lengths, player names etc.) ?

Greetings: Glarean

Completely bogus statement. Engines are tools. Skill depends on how one use it. No analyser uses default settings always not even in leela.
Completely quirky statement. Nobody said otherwise.

Re: The Engine Crackers (4)

. It amazes me that after several years of NN engine play we still have people posting example blitz games and intimating that the game posted is some how “proof” of the superiority of one engine, or engine type, over another or making other similarly ludicrous claims. You didn't quite understand wh...

Re: The Engine Crackers (4)

, then a sinlge won game of an AB-engine against LC0 would be enough to prove you wrong, wouldn't it? But the task here is quite different, in fact it is: Find an AB engine that can win this position against Stockfish 240620 without 8.e4! Well, dear Walter, than have a look at this one game between...
