Addition: LCZero lost also to Komodo by tactics blunder, but that wasn't fatal.

Yeah right, SF will be Champion as long as TCEC uses wimpy NNs and GPUs.
THIS is what my lc0 chooses, certainly not the ridiculous Qc6.
In case you are unaware, I'm running twin ASUS ROG 2080 Tis OC with the FABULOUS 384x30 Sergio NNs....

Where can I find the 384x30 Sergio NNs?
I want to do a 384 test when my 256 is finished today.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

LC0 doesn't choose Qc6 either for my setup and the score difference is pretty big (0.76).

Yes, indeed. What was odd was that my Setup didn't even look ONCE at Qc6 !
Assuming that TCEC has at least half-decent GPUs, this is quite surprising.
Makes one wonder if the TCEC people are biased against NN Engines, especially if they are old men.
I remember that the Golden Oldies here were the most upset when AlphaZero first appeared on the scene and made mincemeat of the God of AB Engines, Stockfish. They were extremely relieved when Google showed no further interest in Computer Chess.
And there's no one happier than them that Leela's Progress has hit a temporary Roadblock.
