Re: What was the last good Stockfish?

Were you able to download Bluefish anywhere? Is it available? Sure, I can make it available, Carl :) See Bluefish BMI2 (Beta) . No guarantees it has "style" though. It's just a half hour work or so, not a real Stockfish variant or fork yet. Well, you must be congratulated on this one, Eelco! Bluefi...

Re: 76th Amateur Series Division 4

Very nice game! It's nice to see that Winter has retained its fluid active and aggressive style while making big Elo gains. :D

Re: What was the last good Stockfish?

I am posting a brilliant attacking masterpiece by Bluefish, featuring a great sac to leave Black positionally helpless, despite being up a (useless) piece. It is very typical and indicative of how it tackles every game. [Event "10m+6s"] [Date "2019.09.29"] [Round "5"] [White "Bluefish 20190925"] [Bl...

Re: Coffee house player

Coffeehouse players are still around. Some may even be silicon-based. :lol:

Re: What was the last good Stockfish?

It really looks like they took the settings out out, put them back in and took them out again. I have an old Stockfish Rockwood (RW) compile from late May 2014 that has the settings back in there. Very strange - I've always (mis?)remembered that they took them out and they were gone for good.

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

I like to run engine matches where no book is used, since I'm interested in how an engine conducts the opening on its own, but I do also like short opening books for the sake of variety. I believe it's important to see how engines handle various openings because we are naturally interested in many d...

Re: 76th Amateur Series Division 4

Daniel,

FYI, I have these Scorpio 3.0 settings that are different:

use_nn 0 (because I lack a cuda-compatible GPU)
and
montecarlo 1
treeht 12800 (instead of 0, since then Scorpio would move instantly)
