Re: Automated tool to append "bm" PV to EPD file.

If you can create a file of pv values, then the tool epdInsert (from 40H-EPD tools) can append a pv opcode to the end of each line of an end file. The process is explained further with the tool bmOpcode. It extracts the pv from Arena analysis log after doing an engine analysis using Arena and an eng...

Re: TCEC 10

correction:

the results were
Booot 3.0/12
K-S-H 3.0/4

same conclusion- Booot did not influence eventual outcome.

Re: TCEC 10

I looked to see if the Fizbo fiasco had a ripple effect on the results in round 2.

The beneficiary Booot scored the same vs the Big Three (0.5/2.0). No effect on the results of round 2.

Re: TCEC 10

Stockfish is first engine, which goes WHOLE season UNBEATEN!! No word on that in chessdom page? Let's compare. Komodo goes undefeated in the chess.com speed championship but misses qualifying for the final by .5 points. This goes unreported in the chess.com website. No one cares. Stockfish goes und...

Re: Looking for PGN sorting but in order of my choice

I have been working on a direct tool that will merge pgn files. Right now it only merges 2 files, 1 game from each, repeatedly. Hopefully I will be able to increase that number, but that will take awhile, if at all. Here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/zo6ufedvkcacccr/merge.exe Usage (in ...

Re: Komodo is now set to come top in stage one of TCEC 10

An interesting possibility is occurring. Right now, with all 23 games completed we have 3 engines with 14.5 points. Two will advance based on S-B points. So it looks like the two will be Chiron and Ginkgo who have 145.50 and 139.25. And it looks like Gull will go home because its S-B points are 137....
