CyberNezh BOT now at lichess.org

Post by carldaman » Sat Apr 04, 2020 10:30 pm

https://lichess.org/@/Nezh-BOT

I set up a version of Nezh as a BOT at lichess. If you ever wished go up against Nezhmetdinov, Tal or Alekhine, now you can, but all rolled up into one! :D

Still working out some kinks, but it's running fine. For now it's playing without a book. Rapid or faster time controls are available.

Enjoy!

On which engine CyberNezh based?

Well, Rodent has been a source of inspiration, conceptually. I would look at Nezh as being rather based on great unsung attacking heroes from the past such Rashid Nezhmetdinov and Nicolas Rossolimo, with a nod to Tal and Alekhine's genius as well.

Its strength is substantial and it can take care of any opposition below 2800 Elo, be it human or engine. One of the goals was to reach a level of strength equal to or slightly stronger than the best human GMs. Even more important than strength is the swashbuckling, daring style, of course. Nezh is fearless and can take enormous risks in pursuit of winning. There's no 'draw death' to worry about.



Hats off to Alayan for not being afraid to take on Nezh. The lightning bolt is 14. Bh6!!, a move that leaves a lasting impression. :D

Where can one get the source code for this engine? Or a Linux binary?

I see. Who is the author of the program? I've never heard of this engine before.

I'm only the tester. The author wants to keep a low profile.

ShashChess 5.0 (last stylistic ShashChess) finds Bh6 instantly, thinks capturing the sacrificed Bishop is a mistake:
