WAC-300 is known to be busted
No, it is not busted. g6 is the clear-cut best answer.
I think he means : "the WAC (300 positions)".
Ah ok. :-) I actually have a few minor corrections to my fixed set, which I will post soon. Nothing serious.

I have heard the participants start with their machines on their shoulders in Somport (Aragón) and when they arrive in Santiago they begin with the blitz tournament.
I want to see the author of Jonny doing that!

Re: WAC cleaned and revised (201 positions)

For WAC.140, Bc7 is a mate in 27. I realize that Rc7 is a mate in 12, but both moves win. r2b1rk1/pq4p1/4ppQP/3pB1p1/3P4/2R5/PP3PP1/5RK1 w - - ce 32714; dm 27; pv Bc7 Rf7 h7+ Kh8 Qxf7 Be7 Qxe7 Qc8 Re1 Qe8 Rxe6 Qxe7 Rxe7 Kxh7 Rc5 Kg6 Rxd5 Rh8 Rdd7 Kf5 f3 Rh7 Rxg7 Rxg7 Rxg7 Ke6 Bd8 a6 Ra7 Kd5 Rxa6 Kx...

Where did the book end in the above game?
In my case 13 moves, but Komodo played its 15th move instantly so that much was book.

Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

I think Komodo played into a bad book line in the playoff game it lost: [Event "AWCRCC19"] [Site "Internet Chess Club"] [Date "2019.12.08"] [Round "1"] [White "DeusX"] [Black "Komodo"] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "B90"] [WhiteElo "2800"] [BlackElo "3400"] [PlyCount "191"] [EventDate "2019.??.??"] [TimeCont...

Re: The optimalized Fat Fritz

In the cited article of Albert Silver you can see parameters of Fat Fritz on pictures. Try them. I did. They don't suit lc0 at all ! So that's a bust. Still looking for best Settings for twin 2080 Tis Setups... I warned people to not use them for Leela, so I am not in the least surprised. As to the...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (23rd November 2019)

Chessbase don't waste time https://en.chessbase.com/post/optimizing-fat-fritz . I am sure Albert Silver (who wrote the article) is very proud he wrote the strongest engine in the world. The article on optimization is what I wrote last week. The ratings part was added by CB in view of the result. As...

Re: Fat Fritz recalibrate

Thanks, Albert - I asked because, unfortunately, I only have an AMD card at the moment. Does it create a file if the calibration is successful? I know Leela does that. Yes, it does.
