I think getting opening books that give a 0.00 for each side or super neutral books also work against SF. In TCEC the only time SF seemed to do well is when it came out of the opening with a big advantage where deep forced tactics and not positional play mattered.

Nice observation. Does anyone know how many Megabytes LCZ is to download?

I see. I have an interest in seeing SF play LZ with a powerful book.
With Stockfish playing LC0 without an opening book the result is 100% meaningless..."Apples & Oranges".. :wink:
I pretty much agree. Its a huge handicap for SF.
What DeepMind did with A0 was much worse than these Lc0 games. They just let SF go into the same bad openings over and over again.
