Unfortunately almost nobody want to learn chess 1 hour per day.
The people that I taught chess wanted to learn chess only 1 hour per week but I will be surprised if one hour per day is enough to beat stockfish depth 1 after a week.
You are correct Uri, it is NOT enough. Chess is harder than what people think, but there are gifted child, but even if they are 1 week is NOT enough. Talking from my own experience I started to take lesson from an online IM instructor and after 10 months of him guiding me and telling me to get a different chess book every months and testing me on what I should have learned from those books, and providing me with guided tactical positions to solves every week as I progress, different endgames books, strategies books and testing my comprehension of those books every other week, and giving different positions and asking me to take my time and answer what would be the best move to play and explain the reason why to him, anyway after 10 long months all that I have manage to accomplish is to draw versus Komodo 13.3 at Depth 4 in time control of 10 + 5 minutes, sometime I feel like I have wasted my money, but my trainer was very happy that I drew versus Komodo at depth 4. He simply put it this way you started training with me and you were a low 1300 to 1350 at your best and you have learned so much in 10 months which is what he expected me, since I am NOT a genius or gifted person like so many. All that I have to say is that there is so much to learn in chess, that the more you learn the more there is to keep on learning. I will be happy when I could beat Komodo 14 at Depth 5 Time control 10+5 sec increment and it might be harder to do because with every version of Komodo the harder it becomes
Larry what depth do you think that Jorge Sammour should play versus Komodo 13.3 at time control of 10 + 5 Sec increment, Depth 6 or Depth 7 ?
Well, since Alex Lenderman was a close match (maybe a slight underdog) vs. Komodo Skill 21 at 3' + 2", and Skill 21 is basically depth 8 with some randomization and limited book depth, he would probably be favored slightly against depth 7 with full opening book on one thread. Jorge is about a class below Lenderman in rating, but 5x the time limit should offset this, so I would bet on Jorge vs depth 7 but I would bet on Komodo using depth 8 (with a good opening book in each case).
Before I test it against Jorge Sammour I would like you to play at least 1 game at TC 10 + 5 sec increment with depth 6 and one with depth 7
I'm playing in the U.S. Senior tournament of state champions this weekend (online on chess.com) so I won't have time until at least Monday, but I would like to do this. But please keep in mind that although I might have been close to the same level as Jorge nearly twenty years ago, I'm a lot weaker than he is now, the difference might be more like 2 plies depth than 1.
You must have done something wrong. Several clues:
1. You say it was a depth 7 game, but all the evals show depth 8.
2. The evals are in general not even close to what I show for the same version at either depth 7 or 8.
3. The blunder 20.Qe4??; my Komodo 13.3 makes this blunder only at 1 or 2 ply; at depth 3 or above it sees the problem and avoids it.
4. How did you set a time limit for him in the GUI while still getting Komodo to play 7 (or 8) ply? What GUI permits this?
5. If you had MCTS on, fixed depth doesn't work right at all, but even then I can't get the blunder you got.
I don't know what you did, but apparently it wasn't playing better than depth 2! I think you just wasted $50.
p.s. I just noticed that Stockfish 11 makes the 20.Qe4?? blunder even at 8 ply (!!), did you somehow switch to Stockfish? It is much weaker than Komodo at single digit fixed depth (at one ply 33 elo weaker per my test, but hundreds of elo around 5 ply).
It could be because I used the Arena GUI, I noticed that the Time control was messed up, But Jorge agree to play another game and this game would be cancelled as if never happened. You are correct I checked the Depth and it is still set to 8 but the time control for some reason was messed up. Something is wrong with my Arena 3.5 GUI. Anyway I will be able to play this game with Jorge another time when I figure what GUI better than Arena 3.5 should I use.
I think you will have trouble finding a GUI that allows you to set the time limit for the human and a fixed depth for the engine without something going wrong. But there is an easy solution for Komodo. As long as you want depth 6,7,8,9, or 10, just add 13 to the depth and set the Skill level to that value instead of setting the depth. This will make it play at the proper depth, with a little randomness thrown in so you won't have repeat games. At these depths, the randomness hardly hurts the elo; I ran 12,000 games each of Skill 21 vs depth 8, Skill 20 vs depth 7, and Skill 19 vs depth 6, and the elo loss for the Skill levels was trivial except for depth 6 (1 elo for depth 8, 2 elo for depth 7, 15 elo for depth 6). So just use the Skill levels when playing Jorge. This doesn't work outside the given range.
Thanks, I figured it out under Shredder 8 GUI, by adding 13+7 = 20 Skill = 20 for Jorge Sammour and then selecting the Time control to 10 + 5 Sec increment, if he still wants to replay it it might happens this weekend, if he does not have time he will return the $50.00.
I found these games played in TCEC Stockfish Depth 1 Vs Chat a very old program written in Pascal with a command line interface, Chat could be ported to various machines such as DOS PCs, and even mainframes

Chat Chess, does anybody know the rating of Chat, or Enterprise which played back in 1986, probably we could determine or estimate Stockfish rating depth1 ?
