Amoeba 2.7

Post by abulmo2 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:55 pm

I have just released Amoeba version 2.7.
You can download binary for windows (x86 & x64) or linux (x64) here:

https://github.com/abulmo/amoeba/releases/tag/v2.7

I expect an elo increase around 40 over Amoeba 2.6

I hope you will enjoy it.

A position Amoeba has some trouble to analyze:

[d] r3bk2/2P1npp1/2qNp2p/3pP2P/5PP1/Q2B1K2/1R6/8 w - - 5 46

Hope this helps to improve the engine.

Not using an engine here, but wouldn't you just play 1.Qxa8 Qxa8 2.Rb8 Qc6 3. Bb5 +-?

Up to ply 23 the engine wants to play Rb8?? and then needs quite some time to find the right move.

Up to ply 23 the engine wants to play Rb8?? and then needs quite some time to find the right move.
Very strange indeed.

I found the line up to 3.Bb5 in about 4 seconds. :lol:

Well, 3. Bb5 is not the best move as that allows 3. ... Qc3+ with a perpetual check. 3. Rxe8+ is much stronger.

I applaud your ability to spot the first couple of moves in a mere 4 seconds though! That is impressive to me as within the first 5 seconds, I'm still taking stock of the position on the board and haven't even started to look at possible moves!

Up to ply 23 the engine wants to play Rb8?? and then needs quite some time to find the right move.
Very strange indeed.

I found the line up to 3.Bb5 in about 4 seconds. :lol:

Humans have nice pruning. :D :D
Well, 3. Bb5 is not the best move as that allows 3. ... Qc3+ with a perpetual check. 3. Rxe8+ is much stronger.

I applaud your ability to spot the first couple of moves in a mere 4 seconds though! That is impressive to me as within the first 5 seconds, I'm still taking stock of the position on the board and haven't even started to look at possible moves!
Thanks.

Tactical themes seem to jump out at me with a quick scan at this stage, but I need to look longer to examine move-orders and examine followups (like ...Qc3 in this case).

I'm sure I'd have quickly spotted ...Qc3 with perpy with a few more seconds thought though.

Swapping everything and just Ba6 is easy as pie, but I tend to try to be clever (I'm driven by aesthetics more than winning haha), and then "refute" myself with deeper thought later.
