This is why test suites are important. A line like 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 certainly belongs in a test suite, where engines will have to play both sides of the opening line, and the one that can play this type of position better will be rewarded for it.

However, as I mentioned in a different post, a test suite position that one side (here White) tends to handle much better will create ratings distortions if there's too much of a rating gap between the opponents, by favoring the weaker engine (by gifting it the White side of such a variation).

This seems to pose a dilemma. Either rated test suite matches should only be run between closely matched engines, or they should be rated differently.

Hi Sedat,

If I may make a friendly suggestion -- at some point you may want to put together a book that has more variety, but at the expense of being less perfect, where some lines such as 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 and others that we know from general opening theory to be playable (for ex. the Philidor, Old Indian) can be included. Of course, you would still exclude lines that are outright busted/unplayable. You can call it a Variety book if you like.

That way testers can test with your Perfect book, and then test with the expanded Variety book as well, for better comparison.

Thank you for your very good work!
Carl

Houdini pulled a Gelfand in this one ;)

Maybe it is human after all 8-)

Or maybe it is the opposite and there is now a rating distortion that cause top engines to perform better relative to weak engines.

I think that knowledge to play the Bb4 line well is part of the knowledge in chess.

I am also surprised to read that top engines perform so poorly in this line
for black because my experience is that they cannot find the right moves for white.

The common move for white is 4.e5 but
I tested stockfish and it seems to suggest exd5 that is not the common move for white and I also tested houdini and it suggests 4.a3.

I wonder if these moves give stockfish and houdini 70% result with white against top engines.

Re: 60 games Komodo 5 against Top4 at 120m+3s

Post by Sedat Canbaz » Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:01 am

I've just done some analysis with the current French line,where i used a few top engines
And its interesting to note that almost all the current tested engines played 3...Nf6
Exception,only Komodo 4 and Strelka 5.5 preferred to play 3...Bb4

Conditions:
Intel Core i7-970 @4.0GHz
Windows XP Professional x64
Fritz 12 GUI
1024 MB Hashtable size
60 Minutes per game

[D]rnbqkbnr/ppp2ppp/4p3/3p4/3PP3/2N5/PPP2PPP/R1BQKBNR b KQkq - 0 3

Note:The current all MP engines are tested with 1 core and 6 cores

If I may make a friendly suggestion -- at some point you may want to put together a book that has more variety, but at the expense of being less perfect, where some lines such as 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 and others that we know from general opening theory to be playable (for ex. the Philidor, Old Indian) can be included. Of course, you would still exclude lines that are outright busted/unplayable. You can call it a Variety book if you like.

That way testers can test with your Perfect book, and then test with the expanded Variety book as well, for better comparison.

Thank you for your very good work!

Dear Carl,

Not at all...

Thanks too for your useful comments

Yes...your idea sounds not bad,actually i was considering about releasing such varied neutral short book

But later i've changed my mind and do you know why,see below please

If we will start testing the engines with such various openings,then the game results will be look like more interesting,more exiting...
But then i am afraid that we will need to run minimum 3.000 - 5.000 games per player

For example,1000 games (per player) are enough data to show the real strength,if the engines are using Perfect 2012b version

Plus in case of releasing a such varied book,many engines Elo standings will be effected

Probably such varied book will be a good idea,if we start completely new testing or rating list (with new conditions)

Of course,i agree with you that those engines,which can play this type of disadvantage positions should be rewarded for it

But unfortunately,there are some opening positions, where mostly of the engines are falling in real trouble

And i think its a mistake and injustice,if we will allow the engines to be tested in such critical positions

Note also that almost all Top Human Players or Top Book Makers dont prefer various openings,each of them has own favorite lines
I think the answer is no so hard to know about why they prefer not varied openings...


Best,
Sedat

Did you ever read "1984"?

I can imagine you leading the "two minutes hate".

The position you cite has been seen many times, and while 10.cxd5 is the most common response 10.b3 has actually done well because most black players have played 10...b5? instead of the the much better 10...Bb7. What appears best in the subsequent position is 11.Ba3, which has resulted in five white wins against one loss and three draws. The key is exchanging off those bishops so the queen can dominate that diagonal.

Test finished!

Here are the results (Komodo 4 results in brackets):

Komodo 5 vs. Houdini 2.0c: 26.5-33.5 (K4: 28.0-32.0)
Komodo 5 vs. Stockfish 2.2.2: 30.5-29.5 (K4: 31.5-28.5)
Komodo 5 vs. Critter 1.6: 29.5-30.5 (K4: 29.5-30.5)
Komodo 5 vs. Rybka 4.1: 30.0-30.0 (K4: 33.0-27.0)

Possible conclusions:
a) 160 games are by far too less to measure the improvement of an engine, especially when you test it against opponents of nearly equal strength.

b) Komodo 5 shows no improvement over Komodo 4 for the used test conditions, i.e. long TCs with low increment, AMD CPU, strong opponents, Noomen Opening Suite 2012.

I think the probable conclusion should be (a), but I can't hide that I'm a little bit disappointed that K5 didn't manage to win a single match clearly to show some measureable improvement. Of course that doesn't mean that I question the 30 Elo improvement that Don and Larry claim - not at all. But it's still possible that this improvement doesn't show under these special circumstances.

Best regards
Timo
