Re: Stockfish time management is BADLY broken

Let's hope Stockfish not start losing on time, like in the previous TCEC, 2-3 seasons back.. Stockfish time menagement must be fixed. It will probably survive in games with a fixed increment per move. But after a more in depth look at the code, I can only conclude it is totally broken at time contr...

OT - Suspicious Grandmaster Draws

Off topic but it involves computer investigation. Here are 7 recent examples of Grandmasters playing the same moves as a recently played draw by other grandmasters. The games were detected by computer. The fact that they are all short draws infers the possibility that there could be something unethi...

Re: Boring

SF8 and the most recent developmental version would make it 7v7.

Re: Latest Stockfish patch has -4 ELO regression

It would be interesting to see how SugaR would do vs Stockfish 7. I don't know if SugaR is just a developmental version in disguise or if it really is something special.

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (30th September 2

I also found a couple of these where the moves are the same but the player names are reversed: [Event "CCRL 40/40"] [Site "CCRL"] [Date "2010.05.04"] [Round "225.1.286"] [White "Spike 1.2 Turin"] [Black "Stockfish 1.7.1 32-bit"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [WhiteElo "2746"] [BlackElo "2973"] [ECO "A57"] [Ope...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (30th September 2

Here are 4 examples of double entry. There might be more examples since I was only looking at a small portion of 40/40 (games between 4cpu engines). [Event "CCRL 40/40"] [Site "CCRL"] [Date "2014.09.16"] [Round "421.1.165"] [White "Komodo 8 64-bit 4CPU"] [Black "BlackMamba 2.0 64-bit 4CPU"] [Result ...

Re: Latest patch to SF looks very promising

Hi Dann, Is this in anyway connected to SugaR xpro 1.2? I mention this because it does appear likely to me that Sugar xpro 1.2 is stronger that either the previous 9/17/17 version of SF or the 8/25/17 version of asmfish. If not, would you know what kind of patch or patches SugaR is using to make it ...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (27th August 2017

Hi Graham, September 2nd. http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040/rating_list_pure_single_cpu.html How come Stockfish 8 was removed from the pure list? Thanks, SugaR XPrO 1.2 64-bit is in the Stockfish 'family' and has a higher rating. Why not test asmFish? It is also a member of the family.
