Re: My review of Strelka Code

Very strange, I can't reproduce the evals in Dann's first game either, but the analysis output for the position at move 44 that Strelka gives here is identical to yours Werner: 17.00 0:09 -3.04 44.Kf4 Kd6 45.Kg3 Thh8 46.g5 Kd5 47.Kf4 Kc4 48.g6 Ta7 49.Thc2 Tg8 50.Kg5 Tf8 51.Kg4 Tf6 52.Kg5 Tf5+ 53.Kg...

Re: My review of Strelka Code

Hi Werner, are there different Strelka version in the net? Here is a evaluation of your first game move nr. 44 e.g. before I start to answer I must repeat the following sentence: Since Bryan & Dann have said that Strelka is no clone this decision is final, Strelka is no clone. -> Just to prevent so...

Re: My review of Strelka Code

My soapbox speach about the patents really has no bearing on this example (except that even if Yuri had reverse engineered Rybka it would not be a crime). It is totally clear to me that he has not done that. As I watched the two programs play each other, it is painfully clear that they neither evalu...

Re: My review of Strelka Code

Agreed. I mean, the "His engine uses techniques that are different than any other engine I have seen" part sounds VERY "Rybkaish". Since we thought until now that Rybka an engine that is using something completely different or applying new breakthrough techniques.(It would be amazing coincidence if...

Re: My review of Strelka Code

I have examined the code and Strelka is not a clone. There is a 1 MB data table called 'material' inside Strelka, which is what I thought was some encrypted binary. It's ironic that I complained about the 'primitive' Winboard parser. Strelka's winboard parser borrows heavily from Beowulf. ;-) Have ...

Re: Strelka will be open-source?

In the final tally, the truth will speak for itself. It certainly does not need me to help it. Beautiful words. But don't forget that at practice we see that author must show sources for at least three persons to stop hunting. Why the dump comparison was not enought? Why a lot of positions with dif...

Re: My review of Strelka Code

The code that was passed on to me plays the same as the released binary. It is original work and not a clone. If you have questions about the code or how it works I ask that you direct them to author as it is his work. Bryan Excuse me Bryan, AND I AM NOT SUGGESTING STRELKA IS A CLONE, but out of cu...
