not too bad I would say!
embla runs on a i7-3930K and fruit on an rpi 3b (not the +)

hi,

I did a "mam join 1" but embla/emblatwo are not participating?
I don't know when you did that, but mamer would only understand that command after I created the tourney, set its parameters (TC, number of rounds, ...), and 'opened' it for subscribing. I usually do that only 10-15 min before the start time.

None of your engines were joined a few minutes before we started, so I joined them 'by remote'. I did join Embla, but not EmblaTwo, because I assumed they were the same engine.

I was able to participate using Arena, it works well when playing as white! When playing as black i had to reconnect and send a match request to the engine i should face.

Since 6 weeks I started working on my old engine again, although I'm busy with a completely new engine (written from scratch for the 8th time), I use the old engine as a test fixture. I've implemented Texel style tuning (which does a wondeful job btw) and I squashed a few bugs in the evaluation function. All together I managed to get ~80 ELo gain compared to the old situation.

This tournament Nightmare lost two games, one from Arasan and one from Cheng run by Ray Banks. Arasan more or less outcalculated me, the last few months this happens often, I have the impression that Arasan clearly plays stronger after John implemented Lazy-SMP.



Nightmare got a bishop trapped after a long exchange, it didn't recognise how dangerous the situation was and finally had to sac the bishop for 2 pawns which in the end was not enough.



It is clear that I have to add some extra knowledge to my evaluation function, the trapped bishop is indeed something it lacks, and that I have to make the search smarter. My search lacks many refinements that are common nowadays like counter moves, SEE pruning, probcut and singular extensions, this might explain the medicocre search-depth Nightmare reaches compared to others.

Maybe I have to switch from YBWC to Lazy-SMP, the second is much easier to implement, but I'm still a firm believer in YBWC and I can't imagine that Lazy-SMP would perform better.

LeelaZero did very well, it scored on par with Texel on his 180 core cluster. it used LC0 v0.16 with network 10588 on my i7-5960X with GTX-1080ti.
