Asperger only

Post by Henk » Mon May 16, 2016 9:01 am

Posted this position before. But I don't understand why my chess program plays a2-a1 and not Rg2. Or is a2-a1 better ? So first question: Is a2-a1 better.

If I had to take a guess at the issue, it would be this.

Your engine does not understand that promoting that pawn is worth (QueenValue - PawnValue).

Yes probably somehow it thinks e5-e6 > a2-a1. Will be tough debugging session (as usual).

Nightmare also thinks about Rg2, but after 10 seconds it switches to Rxe5 which seems to lead to a forced mate in 31 moves.

Abbess bounces around several e2 moves, with a score of 350-425. If I force a1=Q, it scores it at 331, so not much weaker. I don't think it would take a lot to get piece square tables to make you prefer one over the other.

If you force Rg2 or RxP, what does your engine evaluate on the next move?

Nightmare finds a forced line to a table-base position which is mate in xxx, without table-base it will never find it.
It is using 6 men Nalimov on SSD and probes at the leaves of the tree, but not in quiescence.
With the current crop of fast SSD's this is doable without much speed degradation.
With Nalimov on HD it usually probes 6 to 8 ply from the leaves, in this case the problem is the bad seek-time of mechanical disks.

Maybe Re2-f2 is because of overrated rook mobility. (LMR disabled)
