Re: Odds setup BB vs NNP

This position is more fair. [d]rn1qk1nr/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/1PPPPPPP/R1BQKB1R w KQkq - 0 1 As the tables in Berliner's system show, the values of pawns change dramatically in the endgame. In the opening and middlegame, pawns on the central files are more valuable. In the late middlegame and endgame the...

Re: Odds setup BB vs NNP

Yes i agree, the last 100 games is not ideal way of representing measured results. In case of 1,000 games à la 3+2 (expected match duration 7 days) Do you recommend Stockfish Dev starting with the white pieces, also it it wise to slightly adjust contempt setting for SF or Komodo for that matter. Sto...
