Re: check extension

Demolito extends checks, whose SEE >= 0. In practice, I've never seen search explosions as a result, but I wonder… Is it possible to have long sequences of checks, which involve no position repetition, and no SEE losing moves? If the checks can also be captures, it is possible to construct a positi...

Re: Technical reason why probing N-men syzygy will also probe N-1 men?

In a recent thread I asked why, and got the answer that Ronald, author of the Syzygy endgame tablebases, gave this explanation : The N-1-men will be probed while the N-men are getting probed because of how the compression scheme works. Does anyone know the technical details about it? It is explaine...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

Leela (LC0-20180622 with network 395) did surpricingly well, it was running on my old i7-5960x with GTX-1080ti. I've been watching most of the games, although Leela is tactically very weak it was able to positionally outmaneuver most other engines, only Texel with his (100 core ???) cluster was a l...

Re: DTM50

Here is my suggestion: Store the DTM(100) table as "usual". Store all DTM(x) tables for x<100 in a single file, in an "interleaved" format. That is, the value for position i in the DTM(x) table is stored at position: i * 99 + (99 - x) in the file. Instead of storing the actual value, you store the d...

Java is installed, but I see no jar file in the engine folder.

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

do you know the elo of the strongest ai chess software today ? http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/404/rating_list_all.html Look at 1 core performances, as LCZero is on one core too. Stockfish 9 on one core is about 3500 CCRL Elo. I meant software which uses neural networks.is it giraffe ? I think...

Re: Syzygy implementations of top engines

I think that even if Texel's TB probing strategy is ideal, the result is not ideal because it also depends on how efficient the regular search is. I think that if texel's TB probing strategy was implemented in stockfish, it would likely get lower than 47.80 moves to mate on average for this test su...

Re: Syzygy implementations of top engines

5-men DTM50 ~ 100 GB | Who want to allocate so much SSD space for 5-men bases? I don't know if someone has made a serious attempt at creating a good compression scheme for DTM50 tables. It seems you could get really good compression by predicting that the value for hmc+1 is the same as for hmc and ...
