Komodo CEGT 40/20 and 'Strength'

Hopefully I am not barking up a dead tree or wasting anyone's time....this is mostly asked of Team Komodo, Team CEGT...or anyone who really has something to say. I am going to hope my formatting stays true for this cut/paste. These are the Komodo versions since 9 for the CEGT 40/20 just released. I ...

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

I will use AB engines for a long time. I cant afford and don't understand how to get LZ working on a computer. SF with a great book is very close if not better than LZ anyway. True, unless one gets their jollies off of thinking 'they' are doing something in actual play (why I abandoned 'corresponde...

Re: Komodo 13 released

~snip~ The scores reported by an MCTS engine like Komodo MCTS already reflect the possiblility of the opponent going wrong in plausible ways.

Re: Komodo 13 released

No recent fritz update in quite a while now. Someone said they'll give fritz and chessbase 7-piece support, but when is another question. Fritz...is mainly about the features in the GUI, not about simple chasing of (rating) numbers. They are too smart a company to chase numbers and instead focus on...

Re: Komodo 13 released

Mark [/quote] If you means does an MCTS MultiPV search had varying quantity or tree and quality of search, yes it does.

btw. why the first release of Komodo 13 is named 13.01?
