Re: BONA_PIECE_ZERO

There really is nothing special about SF's NNUE. If you skip the half portion, it just a trivial NN, where the input layer is built with a sparse vector or matrix.

Re: Why does TCEC use unbalanced opening?

2x Stockfish wins in a row? Next season Leela won't make it to the SuFi?

And Stockfish as of today has shown itself lacking in good scaling.
That is an interesting take on a dominate TCEC SuFi victory, demonstrating that Leela connote scale on GPUs in the slightest.

Re: Dangerous turn
