Re: What is the minimum odd that you can take to play Vs SF ?

There is plenty of room for diversity of opinion. And you will never, never, never offend me because your opinion is different than mine. I want to play against the computer at full strength. Sure, I get a lot of beat downs that way. But even so, I enjoy it. And when I have had one too many punches ...

Re: Polyglot extension tool

The philosophy behind the Polyglot weighting is that it is more significant that the move was played at all, than what the result was (which could be entirely due to errors made later in the game). Although there is probably some truth in this, IMO the Polyglot approach overestimates this aspect. A...

Re: Sting Sf 12

Next modifications, but one is very important and may not wait. I closed all links to previous (11.x) versions. It ends the main part of my project, thus now a longer break. download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/ned8rfc7ffewy40/sting-sf-12.zip/file I find sting to be extremely useful for analysis...

Re: Building a new super fast computer

I think that the best results will come from a hybrid approach. Have a giant pile of threads doing clever alpha-beta. Perhaps 64 threads are doing Lazy SMP shared hash only and 64 threads are doing Monte Carlo and 64 threads are doing ABDADA search and 64 threads are doing tactical search Have a box...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2019 set

Genuinely interesting result... r5k1/1ppq1bp1/2n4r/1BBn1p2/p1NPp2p/P3P1P1/1PQ2P1P/2R3RK b - - I let a slower machine think on the position all night with multi-pv turned on. Since it was only a 4 core system, I did not expect much, even given 44,444 seconds of think time. But it grades +41 to Qd8 an...

Re: Hard-Talkchess-2019 set

Quite an interesting position. Indeed, Dann, btw. where is it from? (Didn't follow the thread lately, sorry.) It's from King Solomon. Not *that* King Solomon, but some other one. Here's some output of MZFish without Analysis Contempt but material weights lowered a tiny bit (5-5-7 def. changed to 0-...

Re: Building a new super fast computer

I plan on building a new super fast computer. I still am not sure whether I am going with Intel or AMD, but that is not the real concern ... my concern is what would be best for NN engines as a GPU card. Is it better to get 2 x 2080 Ti cards or just one Titan V card? Is there anything on the horizo...
