Re: which is strongest NN network for cpu only?

Which NN network, Lc0 or other, is currently believed to be the strongest one for use only on a CPU, no GPU? I've seen posts on this before, but this is always changing. I understand it should be a small network. No doubt, that LD2 is the strongest for CPU. 10x128 built out of T40 training games. h...

Re: 960 rematch using Komodo MCTS

:) I like you doing these match Larry. Thanks you for the show. We learn things from them. In this case my impression is that although MCTS is probably more difficult for a human to play against than normal Komodo, with large handicaps we really do need Contempt to work with MCTS, and so have resto...

Re: Komodo vs. Larry K on chess.com

Sf changed its scale rather noticeably in the past year or so. What used to be a +.20 might now get close to a .30. Could you post examples of this? I have just perceived the opposite trend over the years (the scale has been approaching 0.00 consistently... some positions that used to be 0.60 are 0...

Re: 960 rematch using Komodo MCTS

This time a fairly routine win, Komodo getting just slight compensation for the knight. So I made the same score as against normal Komodo, 1.5 out of 4. My impression is that MCTS needs Contempt to do well at knight odds; its built-in contempt is not nearly enough for this handicap. [Event "Live Che...

Re: 960 rematch using Komodo MCTS

I managed to exchange queens while still a knight ahead, but the passed pawn was difficult to deal with, and with little time I couldn't find the right way.
