Re: FIDE World Chess Championship thread

they are playing for much less they deserve. To see super chess games we have nTCEC, to see real chess, including fear to blunder and many other human "imperfections" we have wcc and also other good tournaments with super GM. Advanced chess is ridiculous. A weak player is just an operator. Fischer ...

There's an explanation about how to get the worker running

About the server… I guess Gary Linscott is the person to ask.

Re: The end of Houdini?

If you do, a testing framework in the Stockfish guise would attract many people. Fruit is still remembered.

Re: OICS Update: All games are now available

Don't mention it, all in the name of good info. I'll work under the assumption that "+60" equals "+1" and "+5" is just that, like "+300". I'll leave the "+0" out for the moment.

Re: OICS Update: All games are now available

It looks like the PGNs are more messed up than you think. The main time controls you mention don't even account for 40% of the games. The majority are actually one of the following: 300+0, 300+60, 60+60 or 900+5 (specially the first three TCs, with 300+0 representing 20% of the total).

Re: Deep Junior Yokohama

That will undoubtedly be interesting, but since the authors are claiming that the biggest advances are to be appreciated on big hardware, I think this engine would better benefit from one of your 8CPU tourns.

Re: OICS Update: All games are now available

How should I interpret the time controls?
For example, 15m+300s would usually mean 15m for the whole game plus 5m increment, but the game would take like half a day, and that certainly doesn't seem to be the case by looking at the time-stamps.

Re: Syzygy tablebases, work in Stockfish?

As you said in the first reply, you need to know "What to expect", but either that or reverting to Nalimov once you reach 6-men isn't exactly an out-of-the-box solution. And some users will just want that.

Re: Syzygy tablebases, work in Stockfish?

It boils down to this, Syzygy bases work well when playing games, but can be misleading when analyzing. This problem is being currently pondered by the author.
If you are interested in analysis you'd better wait for some sort of solution.
