Re: What engine breaks even with GMs in blitz?

I ran a twenty game blitz (3' + 2") knight odds match (two ply book for variety, both b1 and g1 knights) between Lc0 11248 (on my 2080) vs. Giraffe (best version, on my 5 GHz i7 laptop), with Giraffe as a proxy for Magnus Carlsen, a good one since it "knows" to simplify when up a piece while some s...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

35 years of software development ... Or is it 35 years of hardware development ? It is 35 years of both. The new software play chess better with the same hardware and the new hardware play chess better with the same software. Maybe stockfish is not the best with the oldest hardware that it can use(...

Re: Lc0 51010

Exactly. Stockfish is artificial stupidity. It concentrates on search instead of knowledge. Take away the millions and millions of NPS and you see the artificial stupidity. It is more a pocket calculator with enormous power then an entity that can play chess. Of course , as we can see, this stupidi...

Re: Lc0 51010

SF > Mephisto at same nps. I suspect it's less clear at same depth though. I am sure that you are right for big number of nodes. I am less sure if you are right if both programs get small number of nodes. I think that the main advantage of stockfish it that it has more intelligent search so it earn...

Re: Lc0 51010

knowing patterns help but you need search to verify. 4r2k/q5pp/8/3Q2N1/8/8/5PPP/6K1 w - - 3 1 Otherwise you play here Nf7+ and lose after Qxf7 You picked a bad example. I just checked lc0-network41752 and it sees both patterns: the smothered mate and the back-rank mate. The patterns are weighted: N...

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

The claim is that TCEC used some opening book to reduce the number of draws and with good opening book we are going to get almost 100% draws. larry's words about it: "It seems pretty clear that if you take the strongest Stockfish and the strongest NN engine on TCEC type hardware, and have them play...

Re: Lc0 51010

Over 3000 Elo at only half a million games? Wow, that's insane. It is insane. Imagine poor Larry, all he learned in dozens of years is well surclassed by this dirt quick net using dirt basic monte carlo search. This is not a sad thing. This is what many people in chess have strive to achieve for ma...
