Re: McCain v10 Release

this is the original testposition i used:
[D]3N2r1/2K1p3/4Pk2/8/Bp5b/8/2P5/8 b - - 0 1
i used: Monge-compile64-modern on win7, some 6-menTB+all 5-men..."Monge" hits no TB's....McCainV2 has countless hits...parameter-settings are default (1-5,6,7 probe-depth tested and no changes)

Re: McCain v10 Release

1. thx MikeB
2. same prob here as Peter has...only Monge compliles work and meanwhile TB's access seems crippled or rewritten eg: 4K3/4p3/4k3/8/Bp6/6b1/2P5/8 b - - 1 4
(normally 1000's of hits...Monges's compile almost none)...looks strange to me so far

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

thats pretty much an imputation from my personal point of view and my experience tells me not to do so if there is no evidence for such claims..to tell people that google manipulated the entries to get a result that was intended to get because otherwise it would not have been possible or likely is n...

Re: Leela (lack of) endgame technique?

yes, sure, you are right that hardware-developement plays a major role in computerchess and the speed of progress as well !
