Poor Uri on an ignore list. It's an attempt at humor right? He was merely paraphrasing Chris. (Ignore lists on this forum are a bad idea I think. Soon nobody will be left..)

Oh, I thought it was Uri Blass. But it is not apparently? This is getting a bit confusing. Too many Uri's. Uri Blass, Uri Averny, Uri Geller.
paraphrasing me? you are joking, right?

1. I think Stockfish is probably the strongest engine there is.
2. I think it is stronger than Komodo and Leela-Zero.
3. I wouldn't assert it is stronger or weaker than AZ. Because. Nobody knows.
4. Free open sourced engines with good quality control will always be better than commercial ones. Because talent magnifier.

Difficult for you to be more wrong, actually. And WTF am I getting mentioned at all? Seems old programmers can't post on forums without getting somehow, what should I call it, do you think?

Did you take my post in this thread as "anti-Stockfish"? How bizarre. It was an intelligent and honest analysis of Stockfish's reasons for missing the move, based on actual study of actual Stockfish code by an actual person who can actually understand both at direct and meta level. I didn't notice anyone else making any smart analysis here, did you? It's seen as negative criticism? That is really bizarre. It's actually a piece of smart analysis of "What is to be done" to counter the NNs.

Obviously one should stick to just pouring out long computer mainlines as substitute for thinking. Then you can reply with some other long main line. Main line dueling. Really great communications. Not. Make sure you copy the previous ones into your post each time.

You are confusing me with the mass of critics who just offer negative shite. I offer positive smarts. Can't tell the difference? I think I go join Ed. Ridiculous.

CiChess on my phone finds mate in 12 after 4 minutes and ~1 billion nodes, gradually going down from +10 to -mate.
Eelco - truth. I never put anyone on ignore list, whatever they write, it's cheap
That's impressive. This search by Cfish-dev examined about 5 billion nodes:

No sign yet of any mate-in-11.

FWIW, I found your post to be as you describe it above---an intelligent and honest analysis. I simply replied with output from Stockfish-dev in an attempt to quantify just how difficult this position is for Stockfish.

Now my ignore list finally seems complete.

That's fine, no problem from my part there. I'm griping about the other guy who thinks it just ok to drag me into some other nonsense argument in which I have no part at all, and based on misreading and taking some kind of misplaced offence. It was a negative misinterpretation, false linking me with some idiotic ideas I obviously don't ascribe to in the first place, I don't tolerate it.

My apologies for dragging your wellintended post through the mud. 'Paraphrasing' was not a good word and I knew that, but I could not find anything better in a hurry. Put me on ignore. File complaints. Please don't leave on my account. Too many people have already left this forum. It would be great to hear something from Cristophe Théron for instance. What happened to Bruce Moreland all these many years ago.

Constructive criticism of Stockfish or for my part anything criticising Stockfish is fine, as long as there is an idea behind it that can be defended. It is after all a discussion forum and the impact of Stockfish, or for my part of computer chess, on chess itself is very large. I find I compare it with the impact AI may have on us and I really don't know if that is a good thing or an abomination. But discussing that trancends this post maybe in which I wanted to apologize to you. If you see or talk to Ed somewhere please pay him my regards.

I'm not very smart or gifted but I believe that photographic memory plays a very very large role in being very very good at chess.

I believe that if someone doesn't have a very good memory he will never be a very good chess player. He/she may be good at other things in life but not at chess. Someone with Alzheimer or who has mental retardation will never be good at chess.

Many people in the world suffer from neurodegenerative diseases (neurodegenerative diseases are diseases of the brain) and I think this could at least partially explain why they find chess to be so difficult.

A good brain is very crucial for chess. I hope that future advances in cognitive neuroscience and cognitive psychology could explain why some people are so bad at chess.

Memory is very important in chess because you need to remember a very large number of positions and there are 10 to the power 120 of legal positions in chess. That's an astronomical number.

A Grandmaster probably remembers a very large number of tactical positions in addition to a lot of strategic information about the game.

Magnus Carlsen and Garry Kasparov (and many others btw) both have a photographic memory and that's why they are both so good at this game.

A supercomputer has tons of nonvolatile memory (a lot of nonvolatile memory can store a lot of chess knowledge and chess information almost forever) and this is why supercomputers are so strong at this game.

I think that memory and pattern recognition (pattern recognition requires memory but I may be mistaken) are more important in chess than intelligence.

For example Albert Einstein was very intelligent but not so good at chess so it means that chess is not just intelligence, it's more than that.

1)With no memory there is no intelligence and intelligence is dependent on memory(you cannot answer a long question if you cannot memorize what is the question)


2)Identifying the patterns is clearly part of intelligence.
If you have only good memory you can memorize many positions but not identify that another position that you see has the same pattern.


Here is a simple example
The following positions are the same pattern (and I know without calculation of all possible moves of the king that they are mate) but without a minimal intelligence the human who memorize that the first is mate does not understand that the second is mate.



Note that there is also a danger of wrong identification of a pattern and 2 positions may be similiar but not the same.

3)You need to spend a significant time on chess to become a really strong chess player.
I do not think that Albert einstein spent a significant time on chess.
Maybe he could be a strong chess player in case of deciding to use most of his time for chess and we will never know.

4)being stronger in chess is not only about identifying patterns.
Chess players think during the game and it is important to know to think correctly to take advantage of your time better.

With the same pattern recognition knowledge
players who are able to follow correct thinking rules in chess are going to do better than players who forget to do it during the game.

For example one rule is always to consider checks and captures and I think that many weak players are going to perform better if before they do a move they use some time to check if there are captures or checks that they miss and they may even know about the rule but forget to try to follow it during the game.

Well not really this is the target, since engines have to keep for some time the "losing" score before they go to opposite evaluation.
In my position it keeps it for 1.6 billion nodes in yours it finds in a fraction of a second and 26000 nodes. :D
In this case try this trivial mate in 7 that I composed

Edit:Note that I made the problem relatively easy.
If the white king is at h1 it is mate in 8 and I could also put the black bishops to have more options in black squares(in my position bishops at b8 d8 f8 h8 cannot move and it make it easier for chess programs to solve).

Edit 2:I could even make it mate in 9 by havin Bf1-a6 as first move.
