Re: Hannibal Arasan

Hannibal lost. I haven't done a full analysis, but stockfish thinks White should not have played Qe3 here: 3q4/p5bk/3p1rp1/p1pPp2p/P1N1Pr2/3P4/1PP3RP/4Q1RK w - - 0 29 Evals start going down from there. There might have been other errors. --Jon Yes my SF9 agrees too. Qe3 just loses a tempo as shown ...

Re: Nemorino-DeusX, TCEC 13

How does a program with an NN trained on master level games choose 3... Nxe4? Help this idiot understand. I just checked with latest dev of SF9, but 3...Nxe4 always lands on top 5 best move with only 0.10 difference with the other best moves. So I think 3...Nxe4 is not that bad, but that game above...

Re: Great new Movie about AI

Hi Maybe not relevant, but I just watched a great new movie about AI, called "Upgrade". Bunch of no-name actors, but its all about AI and how it could change Life in the future, with an interesting twist in the end. Really well-made for a low-budget movie. Look for it on the 'Net...some of you may ...

Re: Stockfish 9 vs Stockfish 9 - Game with fixed depth = 58

Thanks for this SF9 game. Looks like SF9 considers 1...e6 for black (French) as one of the best defence against 1.e4
Though the mid-game phase of SF9 above just transposes into a Sicilian setup.

Re: More problems that are hard on SF

Maybe tuning of king safety eval might get this one quickly. ref first position [Event "?"] [Site "?"] [Date "2018.07.23"] [Round "?"] [White "Analysis"] [Black "Stockfish8"] [Result "0-1"] [WhiteElo "2400"] [TimeControl "1800+30"] [SetUp "1"] [FEN "1r2kb1r/2q2ppp/p2pp3/6PB/1N2bP1P/2P1B2Q/PK6/3R3R b...

Re: New test suite "Tactical Insanity"

The inspiration for this test is a mish-mash of things, but mostly these are positions where about half the engines I tried got the wrong answer after 30 seconds using 6 cores at 3.4 GHz. Some are positions I have studied over time and found interesting. All of them are positions which I did not ha...

Regarding Talkchess update and features

Thanks for this update. Looks lighter to the eyes and looks a bit spacious. Some features are new to me, like if I click the name of the poster I can see "add friend" and "add foe". What would happen if these features are clicked? Sorry if this was already previously discussed which I obviously miss...

Tell us the truth, you were able to hold a draw against Leela because you
cheated and used your engine Moron v1.0 on your smartphone.
