Re: GUI under lan

It is called p2p.exe. when run as an engine in a GUI on both ends, it allows you to set up a peer-to-peer connection. The p2p.exe on one machine then plays as the human on the...

Re: IN 100 games if SF reaches 51 in TCEC it should be stopped

If you look at the games that LC0 was beating SF impressively … they all seemed to take advantage of a few holes in SF evaluation. Obviously SF could see that and with enough data from lost games SF was able to plug up the weaknesses. This probably exaggerated the appearance of Lc0 being a much str...

Re: 13th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

or if ICC is the only viable server, could the games be relayed live on the ACCA web page with some free chat for the users to comment?

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Found on http://vlasak.biz/evcnews.htm Eine große Überraschung ist der Motor, bei dem es sich um Fat Fritz handeln wird, modifizierte LC0.

Re: buying a new computer

I'm considering buy a RTX card for Leela and other NN engines. Do you think it's worth buying a 2070 or a 2060 would already be enough? Maybe I could buy later a second 2060. Do these engines work well with two cards?
