Re: Hard-Talkchess-2020 set, final release

The double rook sacrifice of Lc0 to checkmate SF12 was missed.
Maybe that is pretty tough for NNUE engines too.

That's the shortest defeat of SF12 in a long time control I think.

Re: Tactics generator

Came across this at https://github.com/vitogit/pgn-tactics-generator and tried to install it on mingw on Win10. It immediately crashes with a segmentation fault when I run it. Has anyone got it to run, thanks. I remember Ferdy released a similar tool. It is just actually a GM-GM analysis tool that ...

Re: Komodo Dragon is Kicking Ass in TCEC

Listen lad, honestly, I meant no harm. Yet your statement struck me as ignorant, and false, thus triggering my harsh response. ( Which I regret, and blame the scotch :shock: ) But, saying Dragon is weak, is like saying " Russian Roulette", is my favourite game! All, should try it!?" Capiche ? I kno...

Re: Are Free Antivirus any good for your Computer?

I know that Norton 360 and Kaspersky and other commercial are excellent to protest your Computer with expensive Database, and Chess Softwares, but my questions is there any free Antivirus that does the same as commercial Antivirus, or NOT really you get what you pay for ? Note: What is your opinion...

Re: Interesting mate in 8

r3r1k1/1q4p1/p1b1ppP1/3p4/P3B3/2N1Q3/1PP4R/5R1K w - - Rf3 is mate in 8. There are a couple other mating moves. And engines like Bg2 which probably wins. But the thing that is interesting to me is that I think most humans would play the obvious looking Rf3. Stockfish took a long time to find it on m...

Nolot Position #8. No win?

Is the last position in Nolot (pos. #8) buggy? I don't have the source, please share if you have this in your database. I just rechecked with SF12 it shows a drawish game even with 2 Q promotions by white. [Event "NOLOT revisited"] [Site "talkchess"] [Date "2021.01.07"] [Round "?"] [White "SF"] [Bla...

Re: Interesting game to analyze, Leela blunders and K11 wins.

This is a game that happened in the semi-finals of my own cup, which is played with extremely long time control (4 hours + 30 seconds) + ponder on, no opening book, and no TBs; play from start position to mate. I thought it would be a Leela walk in the park against old free Komodo 11, but it turned...

Re: Evaluation of moves from World Championship Games

By today's standards at move 12, we are still in the middle of the opening book. I suspect the results are biased. Try the same but start for example at move 20 to see if there is a difference between the results. In their matches, Kasparov & Karpov played the same opening over and over until beate...

Re: Evaluation of moves from World Championship Games

Thanks for this graph. So it seems the analysis of journalists, experts and GMs were all correct. Karpov is a bit accurate compared to R.J.Fischer so Karpov will surely crush Fischer in case Fischer showed up to defend his World Champion crown Journalists and GM commentators only gauge was their sco...

Re: The Next very strong Engine will be rofChade NNUE

At the moment rofChade is NOT too far away from Ethereal in TCEC, but if NNUE give rofChade an extra 150 Elo it will be on the Top 4 :roll: https://tcec-chess.com/live.html Only way you get +150 is by taking an SF network :) I agree. But my observation on some test sets (see my marshall thread on N...
