Re: Engine Personality that plays like Kasparov (and Karpov)

After some moves a chess engine modified by parameters of personalities plays like an engine and not like Kasparov, Karpov, Fischer, Tal, etc. So it is an illusion to make a chess program which plays like a human. This is the main issue with it and not the difference in Elos between an engine and hu...

Re: Brainfish, a new concept of a chess engine

I think that making a comparison between Elos of the two engines is correct if the two opening book used contains the same opening lines only. In other cases the difference in Elo mainly shows the difference the quality of the books and the relation of engine's power. It is obvious that the shorter ...

Re: Brainfish, a new concept of a chess engine

As I see Cerebellum Library is an opening book loaded into RAM. So the reaching time is very low. This is important for the very fast test matches. But there are some question about it: -How much RAM does it need? -How many engines can be connected to the interface of the library? -Where get from th...

Re: Is Stockfish tactically stronger than Komodo at TCEC?

The answer is: no. Fundamentally chess is a tactical game. To win games the engine have to be more stronger tactically. Positional play serves for preparation of tactical blow only. Naturally a good engine ought to play properly in a positional situation, too.

Re: Soccer-like chess

I think that draws are the inherent feature of chess. At least 50 Elo needs to reduce draws. But big draw rate is not an evidence to perfect play rather to the same number of mistakes. In chess always the last large mistake causes defeat. In my opinion for a match like TCEC is needed balanced and un...

Re: Soccer-like chess

I also congratulate Komodo team on their success. But I think the developers of Stockfish and all contributors earn every recognition for their effort making Stockfish more and more stronger. To be the second between the strongest chess engines is a reason to be proud. In particular this case when t...

Re: Komodo strikes first at the TCEC Superfinal

Once upon a time... old Stockfish and its ancestor Glaurung were famous on their well-played rook endgame - without any database.
Where is this old times???

Re: Automated tuning needs hand made corrections

I think I need to make a supplement to my reply. There are parameters what they are connected to each other but automate does not know about that. On the other side developers understand these relations. Typical examples for these: MobilityBonus, bonuses or penalties which depend on files or ranks a...
