Re: Lc0 saturation.

it will eventually saturate the 20x256 NN.. might saturate at a higher ELO with a bigger net, but that's not clear

as of now saturation can be checked for with some statistical time-series test, but just from looking at it, I doubt it reached that point.

Re: Strange Lc0 TCEC performance

think it's in the rules that tweaks can be made within season if a play-affecting issue is found.

If Ruy Lopez and Petroff give black 0.40 then why people keep playing the king's gambit 2.f4? Again, after 2.f4 white is much worse but is he lost? We don't know it yet.
We play the king's gambit because it's fun. The damiano doesn't seem like fun at all. More like masochism :D

Re: analysis of 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6

the opening is refuted for practical purposes.

if other lines (ruy lopez, petroff, etc.) give black 0.40, why would black hasten to a 1.80 score? :D

Re: expert NN "lawyers" needed at TCEC

the "no-clone" rule makes sense because most people don't want to watch a league full of SF derivatives :D

however, it does require defining what is a clone and that's where the mess starts... eheheh
