Re: What are Stockfish and Komodo estimated rating for these 5 depths ?

I see. I find really strange that the lowest FIDE rating that can be achieved is 1000 and starting people get higher than that already. My students stop dropping pieces after a few games and have no problem getting to a higher level than Stockfish's depth 1, it's surprising 800 elo players at chess...

Re: What are Stockfish and Komodo estimated rating for these 5 depths ?

Note Stockfish takes a while to add stuff to its search for many iterations, so a real depth 1 is reached when the depth counter has already gone up. This makes it have one of the weakest depth 1s around (I'd like someone to report an even weaker depth 1 from a different engine.) The problem with s...

Re: which is more realistic in human terms, ccrl or cegt?

I also suspect Wael will find an engine he may not be able to beat, or draw against, but it will not necessarily be highly rated, because it'd have weaknesses other engines have learned to exploit. He already did, it's called CT800 1.40 which has a good anti-human style. It is rated 2400 just like ...

Re: which is more realistic in human terms, ccrl or cegt?

I think on average even the CCRL ratings are a little deflated in the 2100-2400 range, which makes CEGT too deflated. I know some strong players that have opined that Romichess, for example, is FIDE master stength, at least - especially with learning enabled. You could try it on for size yourself, ...

Re: Is Karmageddon the future of chess?

Karmageddon is a variant of chess based on Armaggedon where black can't castle, but draws give black the win. After several correspondence time control games against witchesbutt it was clear that I wasn't strong enough to beat him in a chess game. We ceased playing because it would just be a draw a...

Re: which is more realistic in human terms, ccrl or cegt?

The CCRL 40/15 list and the CEGT "40/20" (maybe 40/8 or so on modern hardware) My recollection is this: The CCRL and CEGT 40/40 lists were originally benched on similar Athlon X2 hardware. They re-named theirs a while back to 40/20 to take account of hardware improvements, and we recently renamed o...
