Re: Are opening principles correct?

It believes Qe7+ is better than Qd7 even at depth 40 because it seems to believe e3 is bad for the bishop The main line after Qd7 does not include Be3 but the plan 0-0 Re1 Nbd2 Nf1 Ne3 Here is the main lines at depth 40:Qf6 and Qe7 are considered to be best moves. I used default contempt in the ana...

Re: Are opening principles correct?

Even more funny: It believes, that it is advantagous to lure to bishop c1 to e3 and then playing Qd7. Really? I don't think so. Do you use "Contempt = Both"? If so, you might want to try to set "Contempt=Off". This gives more conservative play and more stable evaluations, i think.

Re: Anna Rudolf analyzes a game of AlphaZero's

Thanks for the link.
It is a beautiful game. It feels almost like magic, especially Kb1! and Ka1! in the midst of the skirmish. Both moves are very deeply understood my AlphaZero.

Re: To analysis.sesse.net owner : disable contempt

Please can you explain, why setting "Contempt=Both" is so unbearable in analysis mode? At the very least it relieves us from useless 3-fold repetitions in the pv, which were really a plague, as you might recall. You can't use it in analysis mode when playing moves back and forth, it pollutes the ha...

Re: To analysis.sesse.net owner : disable contempt

So you are referring to the next sentence. Ok, we are now getting into surreal territory. I was referring to the sentence immediately after the sentence you quoted. Obvious to me, apparently not obvious to you. So you don't want to communicate. Fine with me. You have deserved my contempt. Ok my mis...

Re: To analysis.sesse.net owner : disable contempt

E.g because you suggested to subtract the raw contempt value from the root value. Do you still want to do that? What are you talking about? Even in my first explanation, I clearly pointed out that the contempt bonus was added "throughout the tree". That the contempt bonus is tapered is true, but ir...

Re: To analysis.sesse.net owner : disable contempt

Wiggling occurs, if "contempt=both" is set. This you may call problematic or "wrong", if you like. http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=68965#p779660 This is why "Off" should be the default value of Analysis Contempt (and "Both" is simply useless). And this obviously has nothing to do wi...
