Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

maybe the simplest way to get an idea wether Lomonosov TB's are right is to play the first 50 moves vs DTZ50 TB's and if its not a draw after that then Lomonosov TB's might be right here (oc this will be no proof but an indication at least) ...or do i get the whole thing wrong and you guys dont car...

Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

@ duncan I know, but this matt in 125 is wrong! Is according to Lomonosov matt in 68 as i wrote !! So longest mate is only 114.

Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

I tried to look for the 10 longest DTM in descending order. The longest I could find was mate in 125. Does this look at all accurate to you. ? Mate in 125 ? It is a mate in 68 !!

Re: longest 6-man EGTB win

The problem is that this information is not in any of the existing EGT. The DTM tables don't respect the 50-move rule, so that positions with large DTM might actually be draws. The DTZ tables do tell you which positions can be won respecting the 50-move rule, but they do not tell you their DTM. I t...

Re: Lc0 51010

If you have a car that has 100 PS and drives good, it does not make much sense to drive another car that has 200 Ps or 300 Ps. It does if you are in a car race. It does not make sense if you do not believe in car races but just want a comfortable jouney. You are like a person driving at 30 mph shou...

Re: Lc0 51010

Chess is to create a plan to win the game. The chess championship is decided by the one who wins the games. Not the one who deserved to win the game by having the best plan. As an idealist you may want a rule change. That is not what we have at the moment. Same with all sports. Bolt is the best spr...

Re: Google's secret computer?

Yea, Exascale is underway https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exascale_computing The U.S. will join probably 2021 with Aurora (Intel) and Frontier (AMD). I guess most of them will use some kind of heterogeneous computing, a CPU/GPU mix. -- Srdja If true it looks like Moore's law is being surpassed when i...

Re: Next Komodo vs human match

Sixth game was Gilden's best game, but ultimately yet another loss. He reached a normal opening position in the Caro-Kann with White just missing a knight, and it was difficult to imagine how Komodo would even make a fight of it. Komodo managed to trade queen for two rooks, but was still quite lost...
