I downloaded 11258 112x8 SE net which is the highest in the list.

This is 2 min bullet on my Galaxy S10+
Leela played like random. :(
Does it show how many nodes per move it's calculating?

Re: The Bryntse Gambit

I don't disagree that the assumption is we get there. It's just that some hooks and crooks look much more likely than others. The first two routes look more likely than the Scandinavian one, which requires some dubious moves by both sides (apart from whether the sacrifice itself is dubious).

Re: The Bryntse Gambit

e.g. after 3.Ng5, SF prefers all of 3... Bf5, 3...e5, 3...Nc6 and 3...e6, with advantage for Black. pm Bf5 {7} e5 {6} Nf6 {5} Qd5 {1}; I have Nf6 as a plausible alternative that happens in real games. I guess Black players who don't know or care what SF thinks may play 3...Nf6, but how many Black p...

Re: Three fishes vs Leela

It looks like they value entertainment over information, and they think the stranger it is the more entertaining.

Re: Three fishes vs Leela

Is Brainfish really using his book ? Good question. The info tab says "No opening book". I think the engines get dumped in some weird openings that are probably not in its book, anyway. e.g. one game Brainfish loses as White begins: 1. e3 d6 2. Nh3 Nc6 3. Bd3 Be6 4. O-O Qd7 5. Kh1 O-O-O 6. Re1 Kb8 ...

Re: The Bryntse Gambit

There is a very similar line. 1. f4 d5 2. Nf3 g6 3. e4 dxe4 4. Ng5 Nf6 5. Bc4 Bg4 6. Bxf7+ Kd7 7. Qxg4+ Nxg4 8. Be6+ Kc6 9. Bxg4 * Yes, this looks like it might have some chance of appearing OTB. SF, depth=27, evaluates this as (-1.99) with PV 9...Bg7 10. Nc3 h6, etc. Or by playing the scandinavian...

Re: The Bryntse Gambit

What is the difference between "bm" and "pm" (and "pv")? (I assume the last is "principle variation".)
