Re: Stockfish TCEC 14 Champion

You can't ignore the fact that Lc0 beat SF +16=80-4 in the rapid bonus match. All they did was change the time control from 7200+15 to 720+3 and remove the opening book. The hardware and software involved stayed exactly the same as it was in the superfinal.

Komodo MCTS Progress.

How strong is KMCTS 2273 which is currently playing in "Battle of the Leelas" on Chess.com? I remember Mark saying in the TCEC chat a few weeks ago that 2246 that played in the TCEC Cup was roughly 25 Elo stronger than 2227 that played in the TCEC Premier Division in Season 14. How does 2273 compare...

Re: Komodo 12.3 is out

I don't think that we can continue to gain five elo per month with regular Komodo. But we have been averaging close to fifty elo per month with MCTS, so even if this drops to something reasonable like twenty per month, after a year everyone should be happy! Do you think you can sustain 20 Elo per m...

Re: Alphazero news

Until I can watch a TCEC superfinal style of match live on the internet, where the latest development version of SF plays AZ over 100 games starting from both sides of 50 different openings, where both engines run on whatever hardware their teams deem optimal, discussions like this are worthless. Pe...

Re: Fide Should create a New Computer odds vs GM Championship

What odds would you use? Time? Moves? Material? A combination of 2 of them? All 3 of them? What engine(s) would be used? What hardware? To be honest, something like Xiphos running on a mediocre laptop would crush most GMs at normal chess, so I don't see the point in using something like Stockfish 10...

Thanks!
In a few weeks I will publish a new "official" version.
Does this mean we will see Andscacs 0.95 playing in the TCEC Premier Division?

Re: Komodo MCTS scales worse with TC than Komodo A/B?

Komodo 12.2 MCTS just hit the FastGM rating list at bullet time control - http://fastgm.de/60-0.60.html It places right between Ethereal 11.00 and Fire 7.1. On the complete list it ranks exactly one place above Komodo 9 :D TCEC Division 4 will be a good test of how it performs at long time control. ...

Re: Komodo MCTS and Komodo (Standard?) in CCCC current Blitz battle

I was in the Twitch chat this morning on CCC Blitz Battle and someone mentioned that although the Komodo version number still says 2142, it has in fact been updated to 2171 for Stage 2. This is great news as we’ll now get to see how the new full speed Komodo does against Stockfish, Houdini and LC0. ...

Re: Komodo TCEC is doing really well so far against Stockfish

There's an update from Larry from 2 weeks ago - http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=68626#p776469 I've also read in the TCEC chat that new compiles of Komodo are even fast still, and there's some other improvements that I'm not technical enough to understand. I think it's good that Komod...
