Re: Stockfish-Leela Game 66

This is currently under way. https://tcec-chess.com/ There's a sudden and massive jump in the evaluation of both engines within a couple of moves. The game was apparently heading for a draw before that, but there must have been something pretty significant beyond the search horizon of both engines ...

Re: Why does Rubichess -2.1 play two losing moves starting with Nxd4 ?

A game that I was observing between Rubichess 2.1 Vs Komodo 12.1.1 (the free version) surprised that hell out of me and shocked me The answer is easy - it's cheesequeen time again...a tad longer answer would be that cheesequeen never has learnt how to set up anything correctly on his/her computer, ...

Re: We are reaching the Max Odds that a top engine can give the top 3 GM's

Unfortunately the App seems to be not updated, so is certainly not NNUE version. ... I think that Contempt worked well enough in Stockfish before NNUE, so assuming that option is available on the iPhone version you could try playing it again at knight odds but with Contempt set to the maximum of 10...

Re: Stockfish handicap match - PART II -

I did once a kind of similar tests with the strongest available entity at that time, which was asmFish 2017-08-05. I let it play all permutations of 3P and even 4P (not finished) handicaps vs. AnMon 5.75 (2537 at CCRL Blitz) at 40/180 with W and B. (asmfish with max contempt 100) For this I used a t...

Re: Amoeba vs Drofa - TCEC-S21-QL, a funny game

A funny game with a d7 pawn stuck to its original square, a poor Drofa losing all mobility and bringing all its pieces back to the 8th rank into a weird chess960 position at move 21, and a nice final mate. A nice game! Also Amoeba used always much less time in that game than Drofa (not sure if the ...

Re: How many engines will Sacrifice the Rook to win?

Even so, Rxd4 is not the best move in this position. not only is it not the best move, it's actually the worst move that leads to the longest mate Actually by giving the Rook away most other engines that use 6 men EGTB will eventually resign quicker, and you will not even see the shortest shorter m...
