Take your best guess

Post by Werewolf »

Analysing only one node (i.e the board position) what Elo would the following play at:

Lc0 using BT4
SF 16.1
An old chess program from 1994, say MChess or Genius.

ChatGPT guessed it went like this:
SF 16.1 = 2300 Elo
Lc0 = 1900 Elo
MChess = 1600 Elo

I’m pretty sure it underestimates Lc0, which I would have thought would be best by far.

I'm glad LLMs are the "authority on everything" now: when I want an opinion, I'll be able to cut out the intermediaries (the humans on the news or social media) and go straight to the LLM! :)

My guesses for specified engines at ply 1:

LC0: 2700

SF: 2300

MChess or Genius: 1300
The simple reveals itself after the complex has been exhausted.

Time Control play a huge role in rating when nodes per move are fixed. Moreover 1 ply != 1 node. However i agree with your guess if you mean FIDE Blitz (3'+2") and 1 node per move
