Re: Komodo 13.1 released

https://en.chessbase.com/post/gm-kaufman-speaks-about-his-pet-dragon According to the interview, the last TCEC season "ended a few days ago", with Leela winning controversially. Which season was that?! Sorry if I lost track of the TCEC seasons. :| It's not like there's a whole lot of current informa...

Re: What was the last good Rodent?

Welcome back, Norman -- nice to hear you're doing well. :)

Texel tuning is known to smooth out the rough edges and corners that actually lend personality to an engine.

All for a bundle of rating points. Probably not worth it, in my view, unless the Elo gained is meaningful to the developer.

Re: Francesca 0.25 Released

The position does not look like a draw: https://lichess.org/Wb0ZA8C3#197 According to tablebases on lichess (if you click on a book icon) it seems like black (Francheska) is wining. Is it a bug of cutechess-cli? Of course it's not a draw, as K+R vs K is a basic win. Does Francesca know how to win t...

Re: Smith Morra Bust?

It's hard to envision a typical "engine slave" (someone who just relays the engine's move without significant analytical interaction - ovyron's description is spot-on) having a 2000+ rating on ICCF. However, I'll concede that it may be possible if the engine is left on to analyze for days at a time ...

Re: What was the last good Rodent?

http://www.pkoziol.cal24.pl/rodent/history.htm contains a sampling of older Rodent versions. If Pawel can add v0.238 to it, that would be awesome. :)
