Re: There are NOT any Books on FRC Opening.............

One friend of mine is barely 2100, but a creative genius (not only in chess) and in the post classical tournament FRC tournament, he was crushing 2480 Elo IMs and crushed a GM , and finished very highly in the standings. Can you show us some of these games? It might be very interesting to see where...

I play with many engines. And everything new arouses interest. And Fat Fritz is especially interesting.
But no one has time to play around with every single NN weight file out there.

The inventors imagined that FRC would favor humans, giving them a better chance against the machine.
That's not true. They (or he, Fischer) didn't care about machines.
It's certainly not true (of non-inventors) now. Top players have no interest in playing machines.

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

Ah, the difference here is that Harvey would still be playing his strongest moves. The point here is that if there's a series of moves that draw against Harvey's best analysis, those moves are valid by themselves, it doesn't matter from where they come from. Then it'd depend on the outcome. Obvious...

Re: Dylan Sharp Vs. Harvey Williamson (G4)

Saying it's "as valid" is like saying the statistics on an opening from U12 girls' championships are just as meaningful as statistics from superGM play. Do you really believe that? No need to worry about quality of games then.

If I used a random mover to play the rest of the game and got a draw, it'd be as valid as if I got the draw after all the analysis I'm doing.
This is certainly not true.

Re: Fritz 17

But is the NN engine all you care about, not the Fritz17 AB engine? If that's the case, it's not worth buying. Why not? For me seeing this result makes it interesting. <snip> Well, we don't have a huge number of examples so far in this BB, but it's been outperformed by Leela in analysis of position...

I guess it will depend on Fat Fritz results.
When we've looked at analysis of positions on this BB, Fat Fritz has not been any better than a host of NN engines and in one position it's been inferior.

Why not?
Well, it depends whether all he cares about is the NN engine.
If that's the case, he should just go with Leela.
But if he's interested in Fritz17, etc., that's different.

Thx for speedy response, Graham and Ozymandias. Sorry but I have no idea what fp16 is. Not asking for a lengthy explanation; just a quick pointer for if I buy this thing. Cheers....
