Re: Alphazero news

It's hard to say and I don't want to speculate much beyond what we have data to support, but my guess (and I can very well be wrong) is that there's much less diversity when SF uses the BF opening book. That is correct. When playing with the default settings (one of the default options is BestBookM...

Re: Super bullet chess: LC0 network 31740 vs Stockfish 10 (~3500 elo) drawkiller tournament pgn

After 287 games: Result: LC0 137 Stockfish 150 +85 =104 -98 Winning percentage = 47.74% = LC0 is 16 elo weaker than Stockfish 10. Feel free to compare drawkiller tournament pgn with the 20 possible opening moves. http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=69120 Nice to see, how good my Drawkil...

Re: Drawkiller Openings Project

But information (in a statistical sense) is what matters for me, not just draw rate. It's an important distinction to understand. TCEC openings are quite poor, despite the low draw rate. When you have an opening that gives white a practically won game, that means 2 games that provide zero informati...

Re: Drawkiller Openings Project

My Drawkiller Openings Project is finished. Never before any openings-set gave such low draw-rates without crunching the scores of the engines towards 50%, but instead pushing the scores away from 50%. The Drawkiller Normal- and Tournament sets nearly halve the draw-rate, compared to FEOBOS or the ...

Re: 2900 Elo points progress, 10 million games, 330 nets

So, yes we fail to reach A0 level I am not sure, if this is true. Leela with late 11xxx nets (11250 or so) is at an Elo-level around Fire 7.1. I doubt, that A0 would score better, when it had to play with valid testconditions - the competition vs. SF8 was a bad joke (fixed time per move, very small...

Re: Drawkiller Openings Project

I really like your approach. The start of the testrun of your openings EPD was really good... Is it possible, to make the pgn of your openings downloadable? Only with pgn, which contain the moves, which are leading to the endpositions, it is possible to build an opening book for Fritz, Shredder and ...

Re: Drawkiller Openings Project

I've done nearly the same more than 10 years ago. Not for an openingbook, but for starting positions. After a few days i've cancelled the tests because i got way to much similar ECO-Codes. Whats your spread of the ECO-Codes in test-matches ? Best wishes, G.S. (CEGT team) I am convinced, that ECO-co...

Re: Drawkiller Openings Project

Stefan, when you released the SALC books in January I tried to draw your attention to short draws I observed in practical 40/40 tests as well as a heavily biased line that appears to be a win for White straight out of the book. You chose to pick on an unrelated technical inaccuracy in one of my pos...
