I find DrCliche attitude absolutely appalling.
You may find me suspicious, but I think we might have here a strange case of Dr Cliche and Mr Grant...

I would be not surprised if you are talking here about a physical room

What (if anything) can I do to prove otherwise

you may be right or wrong, we cannot prove or reject this supposition.

Thank you

The Fire vs Lc0 and Komodo vs Lc0 etc.. games proved that artificial intelligence (NN in Chess) is not 100% trustworthy!

We don't need those games to know that.

Thanks for this thread.
Looks like a very interesting tournament.
Have some kind and generous souls here created a game archive or a PGN file complete with games from this [chess. com] tournament?

In September 3, 2018, chess.com will be hosting their computer chess championship for this year. There are a lot of background factors that favor Leela to be able to fight for No 1 vs the best AB engine , Stockfish. Of course, if you recently saw Leela performance in TCEC Division 3, this post will be a big joke( But in bonus games, she draw all 9 games vs Stockfish 8 and Ethereal).

Improvement factors/favoring factors for Leela,

1. 4x V 100 for Leela vs 48 cores ( GPU/CPU ratio will be 3.6 times in favor for Leela than TCEC, approximately + 90 elo)
2. Newer ID are already stronger than 520 (at least +50 elo)
3. Leela will have Tablebase support (possibly +20 elo)

As latest version of stockfish is only 100 elo stronger than stockfish 8, Leela will be in more favour if she can effectively use 4x V100 and Tablebases.

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

At the end of page 7 in this thread, Ted alias AdminX, provided two inofficial links with the full info pgn files.
Beware though that not every GUI can load this file completely, since game 424 or 425 in that collection
(including unterminated and replayed games) has 395 moves! (LC0 vs. Komodo)
