Re: Avast-AsmFishW

If it's not the size, I don't know what it is. Anyway, I (who make the executables) and Mohammed Li (who actually writes the code) can guarantee that asmFish does not contain any bank hackware or ransomware. FASM.EXE (the assembler) is also virus-free as checked by several AV programs. As an additio...

Re: Avast-AsmFishW

It seems that Avast labels executables below certain size as viruses. There are reports that Stockfish 32 (size below 850 kb) has been reported as virus by Avast. If there is some threshold adjustment in Avast, set it to 100 kb (asmFishes are a little above it).

The reality is somewhat different. I come to different conclusion after looking at this curve https://nextchessmove.com/dev-builds

Re: Binomial distribution for chess statistics

Another possibility is to calculate the variances for the normal approximations to binomial and trinomial which can be compared directly for the 2 distributions.

Re: Binomial distribution for chess statistics

I let as an exercise for people to compute the variance of the mean score, and to see what happens for different draw rates and do the same on the Lyudmil Antonov's win_probablity with a binomial distribution. For the variance of the mean, we have to find first the variance and then divide it by N....
