Chessbomb's old Stockfish

Hi,

The chess broadcasting site, chessbomb.com uses Stockfish 8, rather than Stockfish 9.

Re: RootMove sorting in Stockfish

I may ask about a mission here:

Modify Stockfish 9 such that given a "command FEN", it would output the FEN and the move sort of the root moves. That is, how moves are sorted before being given to Alpha-Beta.

RootMove sorting in Stockfish

Hi,

Since I am not a C++ coder, can you describe what is the sorting method of RootMove in Stockfish 9 ? In other words IMHO how the moves are sorted and fed into AlphaBeta ?

Where he missed the win then ?
Maybe it is in this position:

[d]8/8/4k2K/pp5P/8/1P6/P2R4/6r1 w - - 0 55

What about 55.Re2+ rather than 55.Kh7

Re: Correct contination for black

15...dxc5 seems best but Black struggles still probably. Using a weak chess laptop, I expected that after: [pgn] [Event "?"] [Site "?"] [Date "????.??.??"] [Round "?"] [White "?"] [Black "?"] [Result "*"] [WhiteElo ""] [BlackElo ""] [ECO ""] [SetUp "1"] [FEN "r4rk1/2pbqppp/p1ppp1n1/2P1P3/3P4/2N2N1P...
