Congratulations to Erin (RookieMonster author) for winning the tournament. :)

Thanks to all who followed the event.
The live broadcast was well supported.
Thanks, Graham. It was a fun tourney with the top spot coming down to the result of the very last game.

Don't know why I come up with this position.
LOL. For those who don't know and/or future readers, this is from the end of Firouzja-Carlsen, Norway Chess 2020. Firouzja blundered with Kc3?? and resigned after ...Kc5. The move Kd2, taking distant opposition, is still a draw.

Re: Stockfish NN release (NNUE)

Anyone know of a good resource for understanding NNUE? The shogi paper is behind a paywall and I didn't find much else. Thanks! I am also trying to understand the structure of NNUE and wrote a message about this a few days ago: http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=74059&start=130#p847616...

Re: TCEC confusion

However, was that explanation clearly presented at TCEC? I didn't see it. Perhaps that explanation was buried somewhere on the site, but it was not visible to this observer. In chatting with several others, the situation was equally unclear to them too. The difference was in the engine name, i.e., ...

Re: TCEC confusion

Thanks Michael for the two links offered. That helps, but only just a bit. For example, they had some apparent non-cycle event playing before the present one, Leela vs. some, but not all, Premier Div. engines. But again...what the heck was that structure, and what was the point? Why just some engin...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Did you try challenging another bot to 180s + 2s? Perhaps it works when challenged, but not as the challenger? Another thought is BG appears to not be waiting for the "done=1" before sending further commands after the "protover 2", but even so, I wouldn't think that would cause it to then not send ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

It appears the "level" command is still not being sent to Winboard engines to tell them the time control. I am struggling to reproduce the problem. Can you send me an engine log? Thanks. Note that "level" will be sent only when the timer is the standard type. What would be a non-standard type? I ch...
