Re: CCCC Rapid Rumble results simulator

Komodo is rapid player: no losses after 37 games. Note 3 losses after only 16 games in TCEC! Or bad regression with version 2121.01. In CCCC, Ethereal and Lc0 had forced wins against it but did not find them (in Lc0-Komodo, Komodo even reported a win score of +250). TCEC imbalanced openings also ma...

Re: MVL vs. Komodo handicap match

I agree. How do you feel about this match Larry ? Will you propose again the handicap Komodo lost ? Or will you try a new one ? I m still interested to see a GM against Komodo at 1 + 1 against a big handicap. Maybe Komodo would even win at queen handicap at bullet ? :) Could be extra match. With al...

Re: TCEC Division 1 results simulator

Premier also has more imbalanced openings than previous stages, which should accentuate rating differences to some extent.

Re: Human versus Machine

Milos, I agree with you that I would just lose every game at contempt 80-100. I have already been trying this ever since SF got its smarter contempt (combined with a small book to make sure it avoids some select opening lines where it ends up in a simple position despite high contempt and yes, for r...

Re: Human versus Machine

While we know that a human player will get crushed (and likely not win any games) against the strongest engines now, we should be very careful about inferring from Elo differences that the score would be 399 to 1. Unlike Fritz, a strong human would know who his opponent is and play accordingly. That...

Re: Is the Blackmar-Diemar Gambit playable?

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. e4 Nxe4 is nice if you can get it, but beware - white can play 1. d4 Nf6 2. f3 d5 3. e4 dxe4 4. Nc3 and you've been tricked into the dxe4 variation. Black doesn't have to play along. Instead of 3...dxe4 he can meet 3.e4 with 3...e5 when 4.dxe5 runs into 4...Nxe4. Yes. A cavea...
