Re: TCEC: Allie's Missed win against Fire

Did You notice, that Fire was 2. strongest A/B engine after CPU games? Fire's displayed depth is some 10 less than SF, but obviously it doesn't matter when You have high-end hardware AND long time control! In bullet Fire 7.1 has no chance vs. Houdini or Komodo.

Re: Speaking of TCEC, what is all this then?

Finally it started, but: Game scheduling will be a modified format to minimize the costs associated with GPU leasing; All CPU/CPU games will be played first followed by the CPU/GPU, GPU/GPU games. BTW they should use SF11, because there is no progress in 2 months :) .

Re: Speaking of TCEC, what is all this then?

Why are they now playing 100 long games with LCZeroCPU v0.24-n591215? Makes no sense at all. When is Premium league going to start?

Re: Stockfish and latest +6 ELO patch!

"Bench numbers tell the tale. 5123316/4923286 = 4% faster for the entire program. That is amazing." Really Dann I don't believe this 4%. Bench is not nps!

Stockfish and latest +6 ELO patch!

LTC (This exact version. . . more simplified)
LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) {-1.50,0.50}
Total: 5392 W: 729 L: 631 D: 4032 Elo +6.32

This is endgame patch and it's difficult to believe it's much/any gain there. And NCM test from same patch gives -5 ELO! Don't expect SF 12 before 2022 :D .
