Re: Time Management

Well, the gain from SF DD is ~50 - 55 Elo. And the cumulative gains from better TM are ~5 Elo, IIRC. That is 10%.

But, yeah, writing it as 10% certainly makes it sound more impressive than "5 Elo."

Re: Trouble testing the Latest Stockfish Version

But I think even that's enough to see trends etc.
You are off by a few orders of magnitude. QED.

Re: Trouble testing the Latest Stockfish Version

Just a wild guess... did you remember to manually set the number of cores for SF each time?

Re: Time Management

do you notice any difference between them on WHICH moves in a given phase of the game get more time?
No, I haven't noticed anything in particular that would lead me to believe one is making better choices than the other.

It is obvious Komodo doesn't have only move, but that is just aesthetics.

Re: Time Management

Just from casual observation, I would give a very small edge to SF even though it appears to have a more "naive" implementation. This is largely due to the fact that Komodo appears to be more aggressive with reducing time spent on moves in the early phase of the game. The problem with spending less ...

Re: An imbalance suggestion that might work in SF

I would say you are mistaken in this particular position. AFAICS, the position appears to be lost regardless of what black plays. As for the assertion that SF needs to value minor pieces more in the middle game, knights and bishops are already worth 4.1 and 4.2 pawns, which (I may be mistaken here) ...
