Re: I can't believe that so many people don't get it!

The 100 games all started from the normal start position. Nothing of that in the document. Well, it should have been if they started from non-standard positions. The 10 games they published from that match all started from the standard position. Nope. Game-4 AZ-SF 1. d4 e6 Game-5 AZ-SF 1. d4 Nf6 I ...

Re: AlphaZero - Stockfish game 3

Again the pointless exercise of analyzing with the losing Engine, Stockfish. What makes you think that AlphaZero would be so obliging as going along with Stockfish's "Analysis" ? I am not using the "losing" engine, and I'm not using it to "play" against another computer at one minute per move. I am...

Re: AlphaZero - Stockfish game 3

the supposed improvement Kf8 also loses. You are the second person in this thread claiming this but I don't have any proof. So it must be somewhere else? Where can we find the way to win? Not that I don't believe you but there are some people on the troll path by daylight. 4r1kq/p2prp1p/5RpP/2p5/7Q...

Re: Google's AlphaGo team has been working on chess

This is sci-fi. I do not have a 64 core machine but on my pc Stockfish do not sacrifice a Knight for 2 pawns: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.d3 Bc5 5.Bxc6 dxc6 6.O-O Nd7 7.Nbd2 O-O 8.Qe1 f6 9.Nc4 Rf7 10.a4 Bf8 11.Kh1 Nc5 12.a5 Ne6 13.Ncxe5? Using Stockfish 181117, at move 30 it finds 13. Ncxe5 as be...

Re: Houdini with a six point lead near the halfway point of

Houdart is right to decline a change. Yes, and in my view the request to replace Komodo should have been rejected without consulting Houdart. I agree also, but I guess there was a slight chance that he would have agreed to it so they put the question. And exactly that is why, in my view, they shoul...
