Re: 7 piece TB Stockfish kibitzer in TCEC

No. 7 piece access nees all 6 piece tables and so on. So there must be more hits. Or do You think they are unnecessary? If you do not have 7 man files, you must do lots of searching through the six man files to find the same information. And you do not even know the good places to look, because tho...

Re: How good is the RTX 2080 Ti for Leela?

Re: Plaskett's Chess Puzzle Solved in ~15 minutes

komodo solved it in 2010 in 6.3 seconds on a old hardware of that time so if people did a special version of stockfish not in order to play but in order to solve chess problems then I find 15 minutes to be a very poor result http://www.talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=36156&p=370891&hilit=8...

Re: Chess Engines with Opening Book

The Cerebellum book used by Brainfish is external. It is not part of the executable. It is just an advanced book made by mini-maxing a huge pile of chess data. It is a more sophisticated format than polyglot books (and the data is better than most polyglot books), but I still consider it to be rath...

Re: Chess Engines with Opening Book

I think my post was misleading, sorry. What I meant to say was, are there any other PC chess engines that have an opening book within their .exe file. This is not really accurate. The Cerebellum book used by Brainfish is external. It is not part of the executable. It is just an advanced book made b...

Re: FEOBOS ... need more draw games undo 20 moves!

I am making good progress analyzing Febos lines. I admire the work you have put into this project. I think that inclusion of lots of drawn games in books is often a bad idea. Unless you want games with lots of draws in your tournaments. A book line should be fair (if you fall out of book at + 165 ce...

Re: 140 - CCLS Season 5 - Entry League (64 engines)

A very impressive result by Demolito.
At one time (in days of old when knights were bold) Thinker and Fruit were chess monsters.
So an engine that beats them handily is a work of art of one kind or another.

Re: A decade from now ...

16 cores at 8Ghz? If Moore's law kept progressing at its historical rate, we would have much more than that in a decade. But there is some evidence now that CPUs are hitting a limit. Intel for example has had multiple delays bringing 10nm chips to market. --Jon True, but Taiwan has 7 done and is wo...
