Re: Posting FENs (feedback welcome)

Very cool! I don't recognize most of these fairy pieces, however. Could you give us sample starting positions for some of the more well known regional and historical variants, like shatranj, shogi, xiang-qi, and makruk?

Re: Leela Chess 0.10 64-bit w323 Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Just as the CCRL can have multiple entries for an engine (one core vs. four core) why not allow multiple entries for Leela (1xCPU, 4xCPU, GPU a, GPU b, etc)? It might be nice to annotate the entries with the approximate nps for each architecture. Bonus: it gives extra data points for the scalability...

Re: TCEC Season 12: Premier Division

Oof! Having crashed in three out of five games, Chiron will no longer be playing in the tournament. I haven't heard whether they will let Fizbo come up from Division 1 to replace Chiron.

Re: TCEC Season 12: Premier Division

Does anyone have a summary of the Leela exhibition matches played between divisions? They don't seem to be on the TCEC archive.

Re: Regarding Talkchess update and features

Great job on the update!

Also a bit of trivia: this update is occurring exactly 12 years since we first switched to this forum.

Here's to another great 12 years!

Re: TCEC Season 12: Division 3

Congrats to ChessBrainVB and Xiphos! I wonder if Xiphos will pull a Laser and advance through three divisions this season?

Could someone post the results and games of the LC0 challenge matches with The Baron and Stockfish 1.0? They aren't in the TCEC archive view yet.
