Re: Ccrl 40/40 vs 40/4

I'd be curious to know where Komodo 13 lvl 24 or Komodo 11 lvl 19 would be located in the list ccrl 40/40 and ccrl 40/4, since their strength is absolute and not relative. Has anyone done similar tests? Same from me, + Stockfish level 19 and level 18. OK, I ran some tests at 3' + 1" on our tester, ...

Re: Are there rating lists that test material handicap games?

Something to try: Random mover with extra queen against normal engine without a queen. If normal engine wins all the games then it means there's a series of playing algorithms that cover all possible elos from this to the point an algorithm with the extra queen can win every game. It takes roughly ...

πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡ I would like to play against Komodo, but I am not a tittled chess player. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈπŸ™πŸ™ We only play with increments, having no interest in seeing games decided by lag.

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 ...

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.
