Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

We are planning to start a weekly series of matches on chess.com. Each week Komodo would face some titled human opponent on chess.com for a rapid or blitz handicap match, details to be decided. We might use regular Komodo some times, MCTS version other times. The current plan is for this to happen ...

Are takeback handicaps ruled out?
I'll have to test whether that would work properly or not. I'd also have to check how time would be handled. It certainly does not make sense to restore thinking time for a takeback.

Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

I guess, you are the only titled player here. Most of us are like 1200-1300. :mrgreen: You would be lucky if you find some 2000+ in here. :twisted: Perhaps even if other titled players are not regulars here, many of the regulars here will know titled players and may ask them about playing such matc...

Re: MVL now World number 1 in Live rapid ratings

MVL (Maxime Vachier-LaGrave) has moved to the world number 1 spot in the live rapid ratings, ahead of Carlsen, just a couple weeks after losing his number 1 spot to him in the blitz ratings. The relevance of this for computer chess is that less than a year ago, Komodo MCTS won a rapid (15' + 2") ha...

Re: Faster testing ?

Ok I get your point but i'd be curious to see some stats on the subject (match lenght, tpye of draws...). Sudden-death matches can also suffer from blunder in end game or failure to find a mate sequence being too short on time and living on a small increment... I guess I shall work on sudden death ...

Re: Faster testing ?

Is there some interest in faster testing (ultra-bullet style)? something that would be like a CCRL 40/1 scale (meaning 4 times faster than CCRL 40/4, so around 20sec or 15sec on recent hardware). It would be quite cheap testing and a database can be built pretty quickly. This is already pretty good...
