Re: Tournament with Honey, Corchess, Bluefish-XI and Crystal

Crystal has the lowest rating. It confirms, that engine is the best problem solver :) !

Are engines really better in analysis with MV=2 !?

I was curious and tested Crystal in Hard-Talkchess. One minute and 4 cores. In normal mode Crystal solved 94 positions. With 2 best lines it solved 110 :!: . But there is no GUI to do this automatically (?) so I counted solved positions manually. Note that if 2 move had same score I counted it as so...

Re: For how long will Stockfish be competitive versus the best NN ?

In TCEC SF hasn't won any game in the last 30 one! But score 37-34 means engines are still within 15 ELO.

Re: Sting SF 20

Latest Crystal solves about 65/100 in one minute limit and 4 cores. With "solving" I mean first move or win/draw.

Re: Crystal Update

I hope You have looked at Houdini 6 tactical mode source. It solves some tactics still faster than Crystal even being from 2017!
