Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

If we're doing strange fixed nodes testing, then why not put Leela vs Mephisto at 1000 nodes. Surely that will be close. (I predict Leela will score 100-0 in a hundred game match) Obviously if your node contains much more calculations your engine will be stronger at fixed node count. Instead it sho...

Re: The Last Survivor of AB engine, Stockfish! What position will Stockfish stand?

All I see is Leela times 3. It's kinda sketchy that 3 basically the same engines are allowed like that. If you add Brainfish, ASMfish, Thothfish with exchanging turned up and Sugar then the top 4 would probably be populated by AB engines again, but really it's just Stockfish with a different flavour...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

I don't think you understand the central facts in the theory of chess programming: If you measure the strength of Elos starting from 1000 nodes /move and then always doubles the nodes/move, then the playing strength of Stockfish after 20 doubles increases to about 3500 ELO while the playing strengt...

Re: Lc0 51010

In tests with Arena 3.5.1, Stockfish 10 bit the dust vs Herman 2.8 when nodes per move was limited to 2500 nodes (or less.) Stockfish started being slightly superior to Herman around the 2700 node per move mark. SF isn't optimized to deal with such low node counts. I wouldn't be surprised if SF gets...

Re: Lc0 51010

Seems like I spoke too quickly and 0 node Leela is already quite strong at Blitz. 0 node is certainly a lie. You cannot play with 0 nodes. I also do not buy the 1 node. Chess players including humans always see more than a single move in part of the moves of a game(even at the fastest time control)...

Re: Lc0 51010

What AZ and LZ showed is that there are serious weaknesses in existing A/B programs, which they can exploit. As for what it means for humans playing chess, the A/B engines already showed that mobility and king safety can compensate for material to a greater degree than was generally believed, and t...

Re: Elements of the ULTIMATE Chess GUI?

It would be cutechess-cli with a GUI. So the current GUI of Cutechess but with extra options like seperate time controls for each engine.
