Re: question to Prof Hyatt regarding milov vs rybka

you said before that 14 games by hydra against humans is not enough to establish a 3000 elo rating. If Mr kaufman wanted to prove his rybka was better than the best human how many pawn handicap games would he need to draw against 2700 elp players before it could be reasonably assumed that it was.

Re: question to Prof Hyatt regarding milov vs rybka

since a pawn handicap at the super-GM level, is almost winning, does it follow that if a computer program with a pawn handicap can draw consistently against a super-GM then it can claim to have a higher elo than all humans (even if from a handicap match we do not know what the elo would be)

Re: question to Prof Hyatt regarding milov vs rybka

if you know some ones elo score you can predict percentage score against different opponents. based on tests he did with rybka he found the exchange handicap worth about 400 elo points. milov elo is about 3700, so if the match would have been a 4 4 tie then its elo level would have been 3100 as it w...
