Re: Simple question about SEE

Thanks Ferdinand and Bob.

My question was more in the sense how is SEE used in current top engines but since we have available the source of Stockfish, Ivanhoe, Gull, etc., I guess I can take a look ;)

Re: Simple question about SEE

Another small question:

Do you know where I can get a good set of test positions to exhaustively test move generation and move ordering?

Thanks again.

Re: Simple question about SEE

Hi,

Is SEE usually used only for capture moves or can it also be used to order quite moves?

Thanks.

Re: Houdini 1.5 v Rybka 4 at long time control

Pal, how about next replacing DR4 by DR4.1?... I think that in a direct confrontation with Houdini , DR4.1 is a little better than DR4. DR4.1 might be slightly better than DR4 but Houdini is so superior that I think it'd be a complete waste of time testing it now against DR4.1. MHO. Thanks Pal for ...

Re: Houdini 1.5 v Rybka 4 at long time control

    Hi Paulo         Thank you very much for posting the link to that site for ELO calculation.

Re: Common sense returns to CCRL

But I cannot find this page anywhere in ccrl if I go directly there rather than via the posted link. Maybe this page was mocked up intended as an anti-Rybka joke when the link was posted here on Talkchess ? :lol: :lol: :lol: The page is not mocked, it's usual page with live results that I've bookma...

Re: Allow steroids

I don't actually own any chessbase engines, I've never even played with Rybka except for the first free one. Sure you don't. And I do own a singing frog. :lol: You cannot imagine there are people that have no Chessbase products? :shock: I never touched a Chessbase product in my life. I don't even h...

Re: What the computer chess community needs to decide

So a "man of science" should be ok with breaking into a competitor's lab and stealing his science? Or a "man of science" should be able to copy significant parts of someone else's work and publish it as their own, ignoring copyright law, ethics, etc? I do not get the argument. Yes, it would be nice...

Re: What the computer chess community needs to decide

I never said I had an engine or ever that did try to create (or adapt) one, did I? Seems you are running out of arguments. Arguments? What arguments? I was just answering your question. What would you expect me to argue about? It was allready established with absolute certainty about 200 postings a...
