Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

Komodo 13.2, depth 29: -1.06 ... exd5.

Things look okay for White so far, don't they?

The game shall then continue from this reinstated position and guilty player shall be penalized ." In what way is the guilty p...

Re: SF 11 vs T60 Lc0

Of course the people that “know”, know that a big grid search for parameters at different time controls is expensive, long winded and not fun. That’s why these “special settings” only come along every once in a while, probably aren’t best or even good at most time controls, and are passed around li...

Re: How do you know if your cpu is equal to your gpu?

Identify the points at which flatlining starts and use that ratio. That way, it's independent of hardware capabilities, etc. I just did a search for it, and here's what I found: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/lczero/0Ggjqe0XZCw/jAoJrjDgBQAJ https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/lczero/e-0v...

if 6... Ng6 or other then need to analyze.
I don't know ICCF regulations, but if 6... Ng6, I say White claims victory for illegal move.

Stockfish thinks that some other options besides 5. Qxb7 are not awful
Even Qxb7 looks visually not so awful, though of course it's early days.

Re: How do you know if your cpu is equal to your gpu?

The problem is a legitimate one and can't be dismissed with the sort of easy fixed I've seen proposed so far. A good idea proposed in the Leela forum long ago was to use the points at which Leela and SF start maxing out. With more nodes per move there are diminishing returns and when it's large the...

Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

I actually hope you win, so we can say that 1. g4 (or at least 1. g4 d5 2. Bg2) very much appears like a losing opening. That'd be something! It'd feel quite surprising if 1.g4 does lose. I said in the other thread I feel favorable (philosophically) towards c4 and Bg2, instead of going down fussing...

Same reason SF fans would be outraged if I ran stockfisn on my 486 DX4-100 vs. Lc0 on my RTX 2080TI.
But can you actually run your RTX 2080Ti on the machine with the 486 DX4-100?
Otherwise, you're deliberately withholding the CPU of the machine where you do run your RTX 2080Ti from SF.

Re: How do you know if your cpu is equal to your gpu?

Back then they would say if your two PC's were not running identical hardware then the results were not valid. I was thinking the same would be true today if the cpu was not equal to the gpu. You could of course run SF on a CPU against Lc0 on the same CPU, but then two things would be certain: Lc0 ...
