Re: Lc0 wins, but Stockfish is still the best?

Well, Stockfish still being the best or not, how much time before all centaur players use a neural network based chess engine? Not so long IMHO (less than 5 years?). Interesting years to come.

Re: Games you're proud of

Hi Graham,

I'll go with this one... just finished.

What is funny is that I pushed the "resign" button after Kf2 before changing my mind, just to see the end... then win (luckily, probably)
