Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

I just want to say that I think the distinction between "tactical" and "positional" problems is rather arbitrary and not so useful, because in real chess games good positional moves are found by tactical details. For example, let's say that rook on the 7th rank is usually good (with whatever condit...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

STS is not great positional test suite and this became clear precisely with Leela. I have my own 3 year old positional opening suite containing 200 positions, which proved to withstand the Leela challenge, Leela is outperforming all other engines by a wide margin. Here are solved positions at 1 nod...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

Can you admit bluntly that Leela on an RTX GPU is objectively MUCH stronger positionally than any of these Stockfishes, Komodos etc even on 64 core machine (doesn't matter how many cores)? And that STS fails miserably in showing that, while it claimed to measure exactly that? You don't want to unde...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

Everybody knows by now that Kasparov received help from Kimo during those matches. Not really, it turns out Kasparov has never cheated by using a program like Kimo while playing chess, and the positions mentioned in the article were outside Kasparov's preparation so Kimo couldn't have anything to d...

I have my own 3 year old positional opening suite containing 200 positions, which proved to withstand the Leela challenge, Leela is outperforming all other engines by a wide margin. So I'd say these 200 positions are great for Leela, which doesn't mean they are as great as for testing other engines...

Re: ChessBase's prophecy of 2004 fulfilled in 2019

No, "Kimo" was a very serious project, it is said that for security considerations they had to keep it secret, and only when this field of research became mainstream in the open, did they release it in 2019. Here are further explanations from ChessBase (soon after the authors had to retract the pro...
