Re: Lasker - Lipke; Stockfish has difficulty after 39. g4

If SF really thought it was winning you'd see much higher scores. The oscillation in score suggests it's not really sure - it might be winning, but then again it might not.

Re: LC0 graph has gone impressive

Then why is the Leela site stating this? "As our previous 'run to completion' has not made much progress recently , main page and default contributions have been reset to our new actually testing run while we wait for lc0 0.20.0 to be prepared with a new network architecture for our next main run." ...

Re: LC0 graph has gone impressive

To avoid needlessly chasing its own proverbial tail, I still think they should also test LC0 against known entities with a fixed, established rating - at least periodically. That should automatically be part of the testing protocol.

2...d6 is also good and may well transpose into lines with Nc6
2...e5 is not that good for reasons given by a prior poster

Re: Super bullet chess: LC0 network 31510 vs Fire 7.1

I raised a similar point. Yes, it can achieve a winning endgame in grandmasterly fashion, but just when things should be super easy they become almost impossibly hard, taking the longest possible time to win such a simple ending. Could be a faulty TB implementation? And why are the depths getting lo...

Re: Lco road to 8000 or 10000! self play elo.

If self-play is totally broken and meaningless, why don't they test against engines of established known strength? :?:

Leela endgame training?

I don't understand why Leela isn't being trained intensively on simple endgames as part of its training. Today I've found that the Leela opencl (network=31269, apparently very recent) running on a GPU has serious trouble winning the most basic K+Q vs Q ending. It plays in a completely aimless manner...
