Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Why are people saying Houdini is the Champion when it is not in the Superfinal? ...My question is why LCZero is playing the superfinal, if Komodo was second in Premier Division? It should be Stockfish vs Komodo Because the games against Komodo MCTS were cancelled at the end (according to TCEC rules...

Not sure why, I only know that LCZero beat Houdini in the TCEC CUP final (KO format). My question is why LCZero is playing the superfinal, if Komodo was second in Premier Division? It should be Stockfish vs Komodo

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

Sure, I just think that the title of this topic is too exaggereted. I think this format is more susceptible to these kind of surprises than the regular format, because more games are played in the later. Good luck to Houdini in the finals. :D A 12 games match is meaningless, you can't draw any concl...

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

It was an 8 games match, as they drew, 4 more games were played. This is the TCEC KO format tournament, this happened in the semifinals.

Re: End of Era is there: SF is finally beaten!

A 12 games match is meaningless, you can't draw any conclusion from that. Yet, it's always enough to claim "SF is the best"... :mrgreen: :roll: I guess you are kidding, but if you don't: all the serious rating lists groups and testers agree that SF is the best by FAR. Also, TCEC Seasons 11, 12 and ...

You guys do a great job testing so many engines of different strenght.

Re: Topple v0.3.4 released

On my machine, sending those commands to Topple does not appear to cause a crash, so it might be an issue with the architecture specific optimisations that have been enabled. Here is a build of Topple v0.3.4 compiled for a generic x86-64 CPU: https://transfer.sh/5463b/Topple.exe This version works ...

Re: Topple v0.3.4 released

That's strange - does winboard log UCI communications with the chess engine? Could you perhaps try sending Topple some UCI commands manually? e.g. uci position startpos moves e2e4 e7e5 go movetime 1000 and see if there is reasonable output without crashes? Topple-legacy is compiled with the same op...
