Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

I'm not making excuses but you are blinded by your interest in chess engines. It's a very small and uninteresting part of the IT market. My guess is that they made it basically for internal use, maybe to show some new people how stuff works. Just a spin off from AlphaGo. They are a commercial compa...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

A private competition with no pgn, no depth / score / time analysis ?? Just a half-ass pdf as a research paper with only the moves of the games A0 won ?? DeepMind/Google is not interested in chess engines. The total market for chess engines is probably smaller than what Google spends on toilet pape...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

Just a half-ass pdf as a research paper with only the moves of the games A0 won ?? 2. They decided not to challenge the c...

Re: leela is official(?) better than sf9

Our differences probably come from using different set of openings, as Lc0 and A0 seem sensitive to the choice. 12 openings for 1200 games match and 1 opening for 100 games match is bad testing methodology by A0 team. And probably on purpose bad, as it bolster A0 (or Lc0) by about 100 Elo points. P...

Re: Why was Lyudmil banned?

I do think Tsvetkov know quite a lot about chess. He has also made some bold claims about his expertise, among other claims that he can regularly beat SF and Komodo. He has also come up with a system on how to evaluate positions, basically unknown to more well known theorists. All this may be true b...

Re: The Secret of Chess 2

803 games in total. Out of 803 hand picked games, not even a single game for your talkchess family? At least we can discuss some games deeper. Because there's no analysis yet for any of those games, as you claimed. What do you mean, I just posted one. Now try refuting Bxa4 does not win for black. T...

Re: Weak Opennings unearthed by Yorkman tourn?

Have a look at the TCEC Superfinal. Same thing, neither engine could hold as black in the Petrosian variant.
