Re: The day when imagination and will was stronger than artificial intelligence. Man against chess machine. November 201

I still don't see increment and I'm still not impressed. I still don't see any wins or draws against lc0. Shuffling doesn't seem to work so well against NN engines on good hardware. As a side note I managed to draw Leela 2x RTX 2080 in 3+2 time control as white very easily in 30 moves. Berlin and a...

Re: The day when imagination and will was stronger than artificial intelligence. Man against chess machine. November 201

You can see the engine having to move instantly or within a second to keep up with the clock. Without lag every engine move could have been played with 1 second more. Father wouldn't have been able to draw that game if it was in person (not over the internet) or with increment. And if he could, why...

Re: The day when imagination and will was stronger than artificial intelligence. Man against chess machine. November 201

I was at first, I looked at him in awe and wished one day I could lock up positions like that, because if I could, I would become unbeatable. And then I found out it was just lag and GUI bugs, something that increment can compensate for, and the magic was gone. But the magic could be back! He just ...

And, anyway, speaking about 8...Qb6 in the French, if So were to seriously try this, I think the French would be a poor choice.
Of course you have more alternative options with better openings. But I doubt it would help that much to play a new move in the Berlin. It's all very bland.

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

Hard to believe So would have the performance he got against Carlsen in FRC, but it happened. It was just a few rapid games. Also they reversed colors. What do you mean by "also they reversed colors". Not reversing colors would have made the result more random; reversing colors makes So's huge scor...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

Sure, the trick is that you don't need to find a good rare alternative, you can find a good common alternative, and then deviate with a good rare one later on. Here's the lines (exclamation marks denote the moves to play to get into the rare positions, not that these moves are best.) 1. e4 e5 2. Nf...

Re: Networks for lc0

So either even very weak a/b engines can crush humans these days or Mean Girl has a very anti-human style. I’d say it has a very human style, which is “anti-human,” as opposed to “inhuman.” I’ve gotten feedback from several players that they find playing against it makes them stronger. That’s very ...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

Can you give any example lines for white and especially black? Give me some popular lines you'd want alternatives to. Any line is fine. For example can you find any rare alternatives for black in any of these lines at any point? 1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. 0-0 Be7 6. Re1 b5 7. Bb3 d6...

I disagree, it's very trivial to find moves that nobody has ever played before in a game and where the score isn't too far off from the most popular line.
