3.5 also works fine, I didn't notice I could un-check "Common max CPU cores" under UCI tab.
When unchecked - Threads option arrives in per-engine settings
That's excellent to hear. I'm glad I could help a little bit :)

There is "Common max CPU cores" setting in 3.5.

Ah, thanks for that :)

If it works like the common UCI settings that exist in 3.0, it should be possible to uncheck that setting and use per-engine settings.

Of course, I guess I should just acquire 3.5 instead of speculating :)

Re: Which is stronger AlphaZero( 5000 TPU) or Stockfish(30.000 Cores)

Thread option in Arena is not per-engine, it is per-GUI. This is not true. I configure different thread settings per engine in Arena all the time. Just right-click the engine name in the engine output pane, click on "Configure <your engine name>", and set the threads setting to an appropriate value...

Re: Giving up the center

I know from experience that 4 ed: is difficult to play. If you make one more bad move in that position it is certainly lost. Sure, if you have difficulty playing the resulting positions and aren't really interested in spending the time and effort getting more comfortable with them, Nbd7 is a fine a...

Re: Giving up the center

A few points on the original post: 1) Even if we were blindly trusting that SF's first choice at some arbitrary depth was "the truth", the evals for exd4 and Nbd7 are very close at most depths, certainly not different enough to think SF clearly prefers one over the other. Which it prefers could easi...

Re: Evaluation Using Flow Graphs

It's an interesting thought, and I would be curious to see how such an approach played, regardless of its strength (which I suspect would not be so good). Something like this was the best performing approach to Hex for a while (15-20+ years ago), but has since been superseded by other approaches eve...

Re: Can Komodo 13. for Android beat Shredder 8 on a P.C ?

Sure, that's fair.

As you say, it's all relative, and compared to a 2250 with 15+10 (what I was responding to) my play in 3+2 or 5+0 probably qualifies as not that good :)

No FIDE, pretty much just follow chess events and play bullet occasionally.

Been a couple years since I played regularly online, was ~2350 lichess bullet.
