Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

Komodo has done well in this match considering it was the underdog. Can you sum up on how it played and where you want to take this from here in terms of the next match ?

Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

"Well now we know, that the MCTS version is the best with odds" But, why? It is better because it does not assume "perfect" play by the opponent, but chooses its move based on what it thinks will score best against good but imperfect play, just like Alpha Zero and Lc0 do, but without the Neural Net...

Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

I pick 10.5 to 11. Lenderman will not be able to handle the pressure. If by "pressure" you mean "time pressure", then you might be right. I don't think he'll have any problem with psychological pressure due to the show or anything emotional, he's a well-balanced professional and very rational and r...

Re: how many points will Komodo score vs. GM Lenderman?

"Odds" is little more than theater for those who might like weird spectacles. My opinion of course. "Time odds" - now that is the only thing of interest to me because both sides are at least playing the 'same game' with the 'same pieces'...only the machine will always think (?? okay, calculate) fas...

I played to few games to give an estimate.
Also Is Kai right that his ' Lc0 first 35 moves and using SF after 35 moves to the end. ' should just take an hour to code?

Re: Can somebody do simply this? By far the strongest engine!

It never was available because I lost interest while it wasn't ready for release. Things like time control and draws by repetition etc. But it works and Kai's observation is quite to the point. Is Kai right that his crude ? ' Lc0 first 35 moves and using SF after 35 moves to the end. ' should just ...

Re: Can somebody do simply this? By far the strongest engine!

I am unaware of a hybrid engine of the simplest kind, and I don't know what's the matter. Somebody better than me at coding can do this in an hour. Simply: play using Lc0 first 35 moves and using SF after 35 moves to the end. On some RTX GPU and 4 to 32 core machine this combo will be by far the be...
