Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

At regular ICCF time controls (10 moves in 50 days) I'm certain I can beat 1.g4. I'm playing a game on ICCF against an 1.f4 master and we're now in the middlegame and I'm feeling very good about my chances at winning. 1.g4 is worse than 1.f4 I'm sure.

Re: Houston: We have lift off ...

I don't know why you are so enthusiastic. Runs 20xxx and 30xxx are pretty pathetic, especially considering how much resources they have eaten up. Some folks there have overdone something. Just a quick check with the latest engine (rc4) and one of the latest nets: TC: 60'' + 1'' Rank Name Elo +/- Ga...

Re: 100 Elo nosedive

If you test the individual nets against a non-LCZ engine you'll probably notice no or little elo gain the past few days despite what the self elo says. Unless it starts gaining some real elo soon I think they might have to do the second LR drop. I'm no expert in NN nets but I imagine when you see a ...

Re: LCZero: Progress and Scaling. Relation to CCRL Elo

According to this chart it seems Leela is now almost as strong as Rodent 3, so it seems to be making progress:

Re: Komodo 12 and MCTS

You give no evidence that a neural network is needed for Monte Carlo Tree Search I know. Because I never said something like this. All I say is, that the interesting, risky positional of LCZero comes from its neural network, not from the MCTS, which LCZero uses only, because the neural-net calculat...

Re: GUI question: Asymmetric time control

Hi everyone, ATC, I thought that was a basic option. I am looking for a GUI where you can set individual time controls for each engine (UCI) in a match or tournament. So Shredder plays for example 40/20' and Stockfish with 5' Blitz. As far as I can see, it's not possible in Fritz and Arena. But it ...

Re: Can a human still defeat Leela ?

The version that destroyed GM Tang was old and I imagine even Carlsen would have a tough time beating that version in a match. The newest versions no human would have a chance.

Re: LCZero is using my cores, not my GPU.

I think my OpenCL driver may have been too old. I am installing the 2.0 driver now. Dann, what GPU do you actually have? For NVIDIA and AMD cards the OpenCL support is included in the regular video driver. If you only have a built-in Intel GPU (which is inside the CPU), it is better to use the CPU ...
