Re: Booot 6.0.2 Stockfish can give Booot 2 pawns odds.......

Please don't hijack other threads with your pompous, several hundred lines of pseudo pgn files, which often don't even fit here due to posting limitations! Several people over the course of 10! years told you 'please don't post pgn files as plain text here and especially don't post them with main v...

Re: chess 960 engines vs humans

Logically I would have thought so, because the human can't rely on memorised opening theory, but if that is true in practice I don't know. Perhaps the next Komodo vs human match can be chess960.... not that that would answer the question, but it would be good nevertheless :) Actually I have been th...

Komodo and Stockfish value their Knights higher than Hermann

I was trying to compare an engine that could play chess960 as close to GM Nakamura, and I came with Hermann. Therefore I look at the last Chess960 position that GM Nakamura won the 2009 Chess960 Championship and I gave that position to Hermann to play as White and the Black position to Stockfish to ...

Re: What do you think the value of the Queen should be ?

The elo gap between Carlsen and Nakamura is 67 at classic chess tc and 55 at Rapid, so about 60 at our time control of 45 + 15. Since we won the match from Nakamura, I would say the same handicaps are appropriate for Carlsen, although he might have nearly equal chances. At 90' + 30" he would be fav...

Re: Return Match for Komodo

[ Ok, my I7 laptop which is nearly 2 years old gets about 4100 knps, so that's another handicap. Still, even with five to one time odds, no ponder, White every game, no opening book, and slow hardware you did well to get some points with equal material. Maybe it's not too hard to make draws with Wh...
