Re: Only use an Engine if you can NOT solve it !

Never mind it seems to have been a glitch, I see it now on b3 ... somehow it did not show without several page refreshes. This is a simple tactic and would rate around 1400 to 1500 ELO on the chess.com tactics trainer as the pattern is very obvious. I think this type of tactic is never missed by any...

Re: Has Stockfish NNUE reached it's limit now?

After the sacrifice of Queen, have you thought to Qa1+ and Rd8+ giving back Queen on Rook d1 ? This position would probably be good to add to the puzzle rush catalog but this would be a puzzle around 1600 ELO to 1700 ELO rating. After the queen sac all you have to do is calculate that the nuisance ...

Re: Has Stockfish NNUE reached it's limit now?

Or maybe go back to classical eval? :twisted: Probably yes, but it will be a long long way to go now ( Probably 3 years + working). In the last Sufi 19, it was NNUE that just stepped in time to save Stockfish team. ( Lc0 vs SF Classical ended up 59-41 in bonus match). And in cccc, Classical lost to...

Re: You want to see why human can NOT compete vs engines in Bullet Games?

By the way Lichess has Stockfish NN where you can choose to play against. I can quite often beat level 6 in bullet as it can play like 3400 ELO at times and then play one very poor move which will allow you to get a smother mate or a winning advantage ... especially if you make it to the endgame. B...

Re: You want to see why human can NOT compete vs engines in Bullet Games?

It is very hard to compare the strength of humans against engines in bullet chess. I think even a 2400 engine would crush even the best bullet players easily especially if it is programmed to play fast and go for tactical positions. I mean Magnus Carlsen, easily the best chess player of all time and...

Re: Maia Chess, Engine Similarity, and Detecting Clones

I have been playing a lot of online bullet chess and taking on Level 6 and Level 7 on Lichess. I add 2 sec per move and find it quite entertaining. The level given for the engine on Level 6 is 2300 ... but to be honest I feel it is much more difficult to beat at that time control than it is to beat ...
