Re: Stockfish based (ThothFishv1.0) Leela-Killer

ThothFish gained 65 Elo points (well, error of +/- 40 Elo points 2SD) over Leela compared to SF_dev. It's maybe time for SF devs to think of anti-Leela mods of SF if, for example, SF meets Leela in the TCEC superfinal. Things look like the next TCEC superfinal, if hardware remains the same, will go...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

Oh, I've been testing this privately since 2007. Not only that, whenever a new engine pops up, I don't care about its ELO at all, I use it to analyze my Correspondence games against the strongest opposition I can find, and the same analysis methods that can beat some opponent easily, can easily los...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

The LC0 blog talks about a TCEC 7-man endgame, KNPP vs kbp, which Lc0 couldn't win.
SF showed +14 & +153.
TCEC gives the engines 6-man TBs.

Re: How did CCC 6 end??

Yes. Shouldn't CCC have an archive of games somewhere?

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

... I believe I read on Discord that 'AntiFish' is actually a tool developed for Stockfish to help them find and correct weaknesses in Stockfish. Not the only tool used to improve Stockfish, but one of them. Yeah, looks like an idea to "help improve Stockfish's original evaluation function", but no...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

Apparently Demis Hassabis said AlphaZero does not suffer from these endgame problems (One of the Leela developers mentions this on a youbtube video). Are there any AlphaZero games played to the endgame with mate to confirm this? I think we'd need to see this to believe it. Right now it looks like D...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

I've seen on chess.com how leela checkmated with the queen and also with knight and bishop. But always before the 50. move. The problem must therefore be related to this 50. moves rule. Yeah, it's interesting that it converted KRvK in exactly 49 moves. I think there was another 49 move conversion t...
