It's not a weakness that is replicable across all the NNs. I looked at 4 other NNs which have done well in testing for me.
Do they all agree it's bad & find the PV once it's been played?

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

We are leaning toward doing a shorter Blitz event. I know that many of you have mostly been focused on other events with LONG time controls. What are your thoughts on Blitz (like 5|2)? The thing with blitz is that many people here can do that on their own computers. People can't do long time contro...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

Lc0 now has a training run using tablebase rescoring for training, rather soon we should be able to see improvements in endgame play from this. And you still keep "0" in the name, what a joke... I see it's test30 that has TB cheating. If that goes over to the main net, it'll be a ridiculous decisio...

Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

We may consider doing TB adjudication in the future. That said, our time controls are short, and I believe we've seen some interesting games and positions because we haven't adjudicated. I'm open to suggestions! Perhaps for TB draws... but for wins, let's see it played out!? Only consider TB adjudi...

They need to implement tablebase adjudication for this tournament to cut down o the number of times we end up watching engines messing about for 100+ moves of pointless crap.
At least 6 man if not 7 man adjudication
The problem is Lc0 is really bad at endgames.

The Fire vs Lc0 and Komodo vs Lc0 etc.. games proved that artificial intelligence (NN in Chess) is not 100% trustworthy!
We don't need those games to know that.
