a significant improvement in MCTS playing strength on six or more threads (we got a plus 20 elo result in 1300 bullet games on 8 threads) Why? I mean, how does a +6 on a single thread translate to +20 on 8? Why not +6 on 1 and 3 and 8 threads? I can understand that more core = more strength, but th...

Re: New engine: Mora

"MORA" doesn't actually stand for anything, it is just the name of my cat who was happen to be at my desk when I started to code, so I decided to name the engine in her honor haha.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney October

Thanks for the info Joost, though Phalanx and Eichhoernchen have different authors. This is very strange because Belfish, Eichhoernchen and Phalanx were registered by the same person.

Belfish is from the same author as Phalanx and Eichhoernchen.

Re: what is the best engine for big material handicap?

Crazyhouse hasn't been taken seriously by programmers. There were efforts made, and then one day Daniel Dugovic had the idea of adapting Stockfish to play 13 new variants, including crazyhouse, and his "MultiVariant" Stockfish was able to beat the second best engine 100% of the time (so imagine tha...
