Re: Core i9 9900K

Anyone have any experience or comments about this chip? Don't waste money, 3800X is almost 200$ cheaper (Ryzens got a huge discount since Intel unveiled 10000 series 2 days ago) and more powerful for chess (unless you have liquid nitrogen cooling ;)). For god sake, you can even buy 3900X for 100$ l...

It is like trolling. They made 30 minutes video but didnot put pgn for another 5 secs. :lol: :mrgreen:

Agadmator channel has pgn.
That IM Daniel Rensch is a clueless tool. He can't use his own proper computer analysis and is just blabbering stuff based on mediocre chess.com engine analysis.

Re: Leela Chess Zero Makes Mind-Blowing Piece Sacrifice!

The problem is with CCC, they are a joke, they play stupid bullet tournaments and then assume as some novelty some doubtful move by Lc0. If this was LTC game Lc0 would have been crushed. Why is 8.d5 a blunder? Well before it white has an active advantage of about 0.8. After it comes continuation: 8...

Re: Leela Chess Zero Makes Mind-Blowing Piece Sacrifice!

It is game 169 of the CCC 13 finals. But, as you know, finding a sensible site to collect CCC pgn is nigh unto impossible. I surrender, but maybe someone else can find it. Lol, you are looking into the wrong tournament. This is current bullet tournament: https://www.chess.com/computer-chess-champio...

Re: Can somebody do simply this? By far the strongest engine!

I know, that on playchess, some people use it, and SF takes over after 60 moves (35 moves seems a bit too early to me). So, it works in the FritzGUI. And what works in there, should run everywhere... The switch should be done based on material left on board and mobility of material left on board (a...

Re: Is it legal to have a chess engine in a fide rated tournament?

Assuming QN odds, play might go 1Nc3 Nf6 2Nd5 (not Nb5 as White could be forced to take the low-value rook pawn) e6 3.Nxc7+ QxN. But Black already has huge development lead for the pawn, probably it's already worse for White than knight odds, and in any case not similar to it. Well if you want repe...

Re: Is it legal to have a chess engine in a fide rated tournament?

But then Black will play whichever line leads to the least compensation for the knight, resulting in some weird position that doesn't resemble real knight odds. One can tell black i.e. human what is white's strategy. For example white's strategy is to sac knight for a pawn on 7th row in move 3 (and...

Re: Is it legal to have a chess engine in a fide rated tournament?

I am not sure but I found the following by fide that suggest that it is legal. https://handbook.fide.com/chapter/E03 The main problem with playing with a knight handicap for fide rating is that I see no logical opening book that lead to normal knight handicap position. An engine may have an opening...

Re: Requested match: Live Brainfish 200420 vs Lc0 25.1 (63483) 1/2 Speed, TC = 90m +30s

Let me a remark. I set it up exactly as YOU requested. Long time controls. 90m + 30s because you said SF has no chance at shorter time controls. Lc0 set to 1/2 speed, or half the time of SF. Because you said my GPU cost too much money in regards to the CPU processor. Even though my setup was built ...
