Re: Stockfish 11 at 120k nodes per move

Thank you Larry for your interesting input. To complete, my initial post, I ran SF11 @ 120knpm vs SF11 @ 360knpm. It appears that by eyeballing the doubling at 200 elo in that npm range I overestimated it somewhat. My data for SF from may is 180 elo from 130k to 260k and 130 elo from 260k to 520k. ...

Re: Stockfish 11 at 120k nodes per move

So this is basically some empirical evidence that my claim of SF at 100 n/s = GM level was right. With +-2400 being at the low end of GM level. People underestimate engines. Did you omit a zero? A thousand n/s is at least in the ballpark, a hundred is ridiculous. I have the Revelation chessboard wi...

Re: Stockfish 11 at 120k nodes per move

We actually have some real data for Komodo. About 2 or 3 years ago Komodo played a four game match with GM Sergei Erenburg, with Komodo running on 1 laptop core, no ponder, giving 30 to 1 time odds (3' + 1" vs 90' + 30"). Komodo also gave him White every game, only 3 move opening book, and no TBs. H...

Re: How to set MultiPV in Komodo?

Assuming the GUI hasn't changed recently, when you load the engine you should see two magnifying glasses with + and -. Just press the + sign five times and it will display the best six moves (and analysis of each) in infinite mode. That is multipv. But I'm not sure if that carries over to running en...

Re: First knight odds match with IM Saturday

The idea is great, remember how you were saying the other day that if you were invited to a tournament, first you'd want to see who else was participating, and if they all were some 300 elo points weaker than you, you'd not play, because you'd only be interested in playing if there was some challen...

Re: First knight odds match with IM Saturday

The lichess rating range is compressed relative to chess.com, with lichess ratings being higher for the vast majority of players and lower at the very top. I'm not sure exactly where the break-even point is, but somewhere in the 2300s is a reasonable guess - I myself spend most of my time in the 23...

Re: First knight odds match with IM Saturday

One thing I can say for certain is that chess.com is flooded by the weakest chess players on the entire internet, perhaps the artifacts would disappear if lichess' player pool was similarly flooded by so weak players. I remember when I started joining chess.com tourneys and was amazed at how I was ...

Re: First knight odds match with IM Saturday

Hi Larry, thank you for answering. I don't have a good i7 as of now (will be purchasing big ThreadRipper soon though). I do have a very good GPU though. My ELO rating is low 23xx but I stopped playing many years ago during big raise. I am between 2500 and 2600 on Lichess blitz which is close to GM ...
