Re: World Fischer Random Championship

So Wesley So becomes the World champion by an incredible score of 13.5 to 2.5 over Magnus Carlsen.. That is incredible ! I do NOT see anything incredible about that, it could be that Carlsen knows the openings and most variations up to the middle games deep deep enough better than any other top pla...

I never said they needed me.
Sorry for that :mrgreen:

I noticed that Old Houdini, Fire, and Ethereal are doing much much better than KomodoMCTS https://tcec-chess.com/

Is this the best way to avoid too many draws? ........

https://en.chessbase.com/post/proposal-a-new-world-championship-format I believe that if the match ends up is draws after 12 games like it did Carlsen vs Caruana last year, they should decide it in FRChess960 at Normal time control NOT Blitz games, but again in two more years it might be GM So the c...

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

I play three kinds of chess: -"Just me" chess: Where I bring only my brain to the board, and match it against someone else's brain. -"Centaur" chess: Where I play the absolute best moves that I can find, with my brain, engines, databases, and whatever I have access to. Unfortunately this takes much...

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

But I wonder why Alliestein is NOT playing ? https://tcec-chess.com/ Yes - that is a bad omission. Yes it plays up to 100 Elo weaker I'd estimate through not being trained on chess960 games, but still it was worth including. When you go to this website https://tcec-chess.com/ on the bottom of the G...

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

And they use now 256 cores! But only 128 for Ethereal and Fire. No support to higher value? Was using 256 threads at first. I dropped to 128 to go from hyperthreads to realthreads. Could be a slight elo loss, but I don't have that data. In FR Chess960 Ethereal or Komodo could possibly give Carlsen ...

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

I remember Gary Kasparov saying he was a chess player when asked about FRC. I took that to mean he wasn't interested in FRC. According to Bobby Fischer Chess960 is a higher form of Standard Normal Chess which requires more intellect and less memorization of the Openings, furthermore the standard No...

Re: Finally TCEC is matching FRChess960 Engines......

I predict less people will watch frc Then that's their loss. But I wonder why Alliestein is NOT playing ? https://tcec-chess.com/ So far the attendance is average with the Normal standard Chess, there are 210 viewers at the moment, probably the match between GM Carlsen Vs GM So promoted FRC Chess96...

NOTE: They should use the same FRC Opening used by Carlsen Vs GM So to see how those engines handle those Openings :shock:
