Re: analysis of 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6

Looks like Stockfish doesn't change it's mind after 60+ plys it still likes 3.Nf3xe5 and the eval doeasn't really change either: Stockfish_18080817_x64_bmi2: 56/84 12:48:05 1,152,343,267k 25,004k +1.82 3.Nf3xe5 Qd8-e7 4.Ne5-f3 d7-d5 5.d2-d3 Nb8-c6 6.Nb1-c3 Bc8-e6 7.Bc1-e3 d5xe4 8.d3xe4 a7-a6 9.Nc3-d...

Re: In chess,AlphaZero outperformed Stockfish after just 4 h

I suspect they just cherry picked the 10 best games that their program played without showing the ones where it might have made some buffoonish moves. Or, worse, there were repeats in the 28 wins. Even in the 10 games they showed some looked quite similar. Good point Carl, and one I didn't think ab...

Re: In chess,AlphaZero outperformed Stockfish after just 4 h

I don't care that SF lost, it's totally irrelevant in the light of the huge claim by the Deepmind company, the alleged 4 hours self-play, quoting the document again: without any additional domain knowledge except the rules of the game . Have you already let it sink in what is stated here? No mobili...

Re: Test position 30...Nxb3

If You look at Andrew's "winning" line the endposition is clear draw [D]8/8/8/4bpk1/8/3Bp3/6KP/8 b - - 0 66 But according to fishcooking again problem is, that SF thinks almost all moves are draw by repeat = 0,00 in move 30. True, but all lines are subject to change along the way, in other words th...

Re: Test position 30...Nxb3

[You are correct, Stockfish does indeed take a long time to find 30...Nxb3!. Yep. Time for AlphaZero or some similar Engine to take over from the doddering Fishstock. Well Anil, I wouldn't quite call Stockfish "doddering" (I get the feeling that you think that Stockfish, Houdini, and Komodo all suc...

Re: TCEC 10

[ profanity ], this is a pedantic, argumentative bunch! :( Have any of the people lecturing the world on "correct statistics" even looked at the bleeping games??? IMO, Houdini has a clear 'pull' over Komodo in the middle-game, and is generally the one with winning chances. Combine that with the cur...
