Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
The position below is from an enginevsengine match I am currently running. I happened to be watching this game as it was played. The position below was reached and is a win for white, but look at what Stockfish1.6 plays. The game was 5 min + 1 sec but even with 30 secs of analysis (also shown below), Stockfish1.6 thinks that it's rook "sac" is a draw??

Of course a move like ...Rc7 is still bound to lose, but not nearly as quickly as ...Rc1 will.

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
I am beginning to wonder if the 'make gcc' that I did to compile it is somehow botched. It produced an executable just fine, but this behavior seems very odd for an engine that is supposed to be noticeably stronger than Stockfish1.5. Perhaps my configuration is somehow mangled?

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
The engine might behave different when inputing a game or a position. Does the draw score happen after sending the FEN, the PGN or both? For the record, I get Rc7 as well.

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
During the game it thought it had a draw and also after inputting the FEN it says draw. Stockfish1.5 does not want to play ...Rc1.
I'm beginning to think the binary that my system produced is somehow flawed.
Anyone else see this behavior with a 64bit compile on their Ubuntu system?

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
Hi, I'm also on 64bit Linux and seeing Stockfish 1.6 throw itself on a sword when it approaches the endgame in an inferior position. (The OP's position is hardly the weirdest I've seen; I typically see it hang all its pieces and, unless it needs to delay mate, push its pawns in sequence to the back rank to get them captured.) I've been busy lately so I hadn't determined whether this was a bug or aggressive aspiration. It sort of makes sense  search deeper to find a forced draw if one exists; if not, an engine strong enough to reach this position against SF is strong enough to find the forced win...
Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
I think the problem is in the Makefile. I used the Makefile from the Stockfish1.5 build to make the 1.6 version and this behavior is now gone (...Rc1 not preferred EVER  and that's a good thing).UncombedCoconut wrote:Hi, I'm also on 64bit Linux and seeing Stockfish 1.6 throw itself on a sword when it approaches the endgame in an inferior position.

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
I'll check for unresolved strictaliasing issues then!
Edit: Have you tried removing the DNDEBUG flag? (This may also require commenting out the movegen.cpp:593...) Some assertion does seem to be failing in real games.

Re: Stockfish 1.6  strange behavior in this position
Well, that seemed to help for *that position*. However here is another position where Stockfish1.6 makes a rather unusual move:
[D] rnq1kbnr/1pp1p2R/3p4/p3P3/3P1pP1/2NQ1N2/PPP2PP1/R3KB2 b Qkq  0 10
Here, SF1.6 plays ...Qxg4 instead of ...Rxh7 (again, a lousy position for black anyway, but Qxg4 seems much worse than ...Rxh7 which SF1.5 plays as well as many other engines.

You can see that SF1.6 eventually switches to ...Rxh7 but the 0.00 eval is just crazy as White is still winning by a bunch.

could you pelase verify if the following patch fixes the problem for you ?
Code: Select all

P.S: BTW I strongly suggest Intel compiler for Linux, binary are way faster. Use 'make iccprofile' or 'make iccprofilepopcnt' if you have a CPU with POPCNT support and the make will do all the steps to build up a pgo binary in a fully automatic fashion.
