Re: Minic raw speed

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

When you play 5 min. blitz against an engine (even if it is weak) you have to play very solid moves, if you play opportunistic moves it will always fire back on you. When I was still young I was very fond at playing 3 or 5 min. blitz, many times I played over 100 games a day (from the early morning ...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

Some of the weaker engines from Folkert were not logged in, in the tournament were AtomBaron, rpiArminius and Micah. Intel atom roughly compares to RPI3 performance wise. I could have added atomNightmare and atomGoldbar, somehow I don't like to play with duplicate engines, even when they are 25 time...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

Spartacus was lucky because Goldbar's opening book (with white!) gave it an instant rep-draw. We are missing the Raspberry Pi engines for more densely populating the tail of the field. Bart told me about the rep-draw. I have the same problem, usually it happens once during a tourney, if it is again...

Re: Minic raw speed

Minic is twice as slow as others 2800-3000 elo engines. Minic is copy-make (not make unmake) and use HQBB not magic. Moreover, Minic is sorting all moves as soon as TT move is not a beta cut-off, and this is quite slow due to detection of bad capture (SEE). When profiling it, eval is the first cons...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

Tournament results: BelFish (Stockfish) won but that was more or less expected. Schooner is a good runner up.
