Re: New Cerebellum Library

Yeah, I don't get why books would have weights other than 100% of the best move and 0% for the rest. I've never seen a position where two moves are playable, there's always one that is best and you should always play it. Wait, what?

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

Did Kramnik actually play a no-castling game? I see a bunch of A0-A0 games but nothing with him. Which is not exactly a ringing ...
