Re: released: micro-Max 4.8w

The openings really make me wince, but after that, he plays pretty good.

Re: Rybka 2.3.2 is about 50 Elo stronger....

Hi Uri, Thanks for the info.... But note Uri that most probably the Baron will participate with it's non public version which is MP as far as I know 8-) Yes but the same is also for rybka It is not going to participate with 2.2 and it is going to participate with more than 2 cpu. I assumed that the...

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

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...

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...
