question: Gull 3 syzygy

Post by kasinp » Tue Nov 14, 2017 9:22 pm

I have seen several attempts: does anyone know which version is playing in the chess.com tournament?

Thank you,
PK

The original version of gull without syzygy tables is the one in TCEC.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Thanks Dan, I realize that. I am wondering what version was selected for the chess.com tournament. I am wondering who created it, if it's fully tested, etc.

Why doesn't TCEC use Gull 3 syzygy?

I assume the one in the chess.com tournament is Basil's implementation.

A pity, that Roc stopped its development just when syzygy was about to be implemented. It was the Gull fork with more progress accumulated, ELO wise.
