CCRL update (7th April 2007)

Post by Graham Banks » Sat Apr 07, 2007 8:12 am

The April 7th update of the CCRL Rating Lists and Statistics is now available for viewing at:
http://www.computerchess.org.uk/ccrl/4040/

The links to the various rating lists can be found just beneath the default Best Versions list.

Our standard testing is at 40 moves in 40 minutes repeating while our current blitz testing is at both 40 moves in 4 minutes repeating and 40 moves in 12 minutes repeating, all adjusted to the AMD64 X2 4600+ (2.4GHz).

Our team of testers currently includes:
Graham Banks, Ray Banks, Sarah Bird, Shaun Brewer, Kirill Kryukov, Dom Leste, Tom Logan, Andreas Schwartmann, Joshua Shriver, Charles Smith, George Speight, Chris Taylor, Martin Thoresen, Chuck Wilson and Gabor Szots.

We remain on the lookout for a few more testers to help, so please contact one of us if you're interested.


40/40 Notes

1,213 games were added to our 40/40 database this week, making a total of 53,742 games.
A big thanks to all testers as usual.

Many engines on our list have few games and in many cases their ratings are likely to fluctuate (markedly for some) until a lot more games are played. Therefore no conclusions should be drawn about their strength yet.
To illustrate this point, when an engine has 200 games played, the error margin is still approximately +/-40 ELO, after 500 games +-25 ELO, after 1000 games +-17 ELO and even after 2000 games there is a +-13 ELO error margin!
This of course highlights the importance of looking at other rating lists that are also available in order to draw comparisons and get a more accurate overall picture.

We are not testing Rybka 2.3 at 40/40, preferring to wait for the bugfixed Rybka 2.3.2 to be released.

The five engines to be relegated are most likely to be Zeus 1.29, Natwarlal 0.14, Averno 0.81, Tornado 1.0 and Sage 2.2a

Division 5 - With 21 of the 30 rounds having been played, BBChess 1.10 has opened up a small lead over the following pack that includes EveAnn 1.62, Adam 3.1, NagaSkaki 4.00, NanoSzachy 2.8, GreKo 5.2.5 and Pupsi 0.18.
The fight at the other end is also tight with nine engines battling fiercely to avoid the bottom five spots.

Stats/Presentation Notes

The LOS stats to the right hand side of each rating list are "likelihood of superiority" stats. They tell you the likelihood in percentage terms of each engine being superior to the engine directly below them.

All games are also available for download through the link given at the top of this post. They can be downloaded by engine or by month.
ELO ratings are now saved in all game databases for those engines that have 150 games or more.

A list of games played this week per engine can be found in the update thread in the CCRL public forum, accessible through the link given at the top of this post.
