Skipper zero : no progress

Post by Henk » Mon Dec 18, 2017 11:39 pm

Result after two hours training on this simple endgame. Bit disappointing.

[pgn]
[FEN "3qk3/8/8/8/8/8/8/4K3 w - - 0 1"]
1. Ke1-f1 { 0.300 0.01 } { }
1. Qd8-d3 { 0.345 0.01 } { }
2. Kf1-g1 { 0.369 0.01 } { }
2. Qd3-d2 { 0.413 0.01 } { }
3. Kg1-f1 { 0.362 0.01 } { }
3. Qd2-f2 { 0.299 0.01 } { }
4. Kf1-f2 { 0.335 0.01 } { }
[/pgn]


Or its a slow learner. Or there are some bugs.

Your humor is drier than mine and that is something that I can appreciate. :lol:
I hate if statements. Pawns demand if statements. Therefore I hate pawns.

I have a question for you Henk. My mother always claimed that she was Pennsylvania Dutch. Her last name is/was Conrad. So in your opinion was she Dutch or was she German? Or not enough information?

Yeah, could be a bug. Or maybe you just need 5,000 TPUs.

Don't understand link between Pennsylvania and the Dutch. Conrad does not sound like a Dutch name.

Conrad = Americanized spelling of German Konrad. It is derived from the Proto-Germanic name Konrad, from conja meaning bold and rad counsel. It was the name of a 10th-century bishop of Constance, and became popular in post-medieval English and post-medieval French. It regained popularity in the English-speaking world in the 19th century. It is recorded as a surname as early as 1297.

The Pennsylvania Dutch are German ("Deutsch") rather than Dutch.
