Re: enjoy the paper - :-)

Because, Mr. Silver, I don't read this board often. I am NOT FOND of the phpBB interface. That's fine, but it doesn't explain why you thought that the paper had somehow not been seen, noticed, or read, by literally everyone in the computer chess world within a week after its release, much less over...

You may be interested to know there is an updated version of the paper, published about a year later in Science magazine. There is also an open source project dedicated to the recreation of AlphaZero called Leela Chess Zero.

Re: Stockfish 11, Contempt=0 - Lc0 0.23.2 (Kiudee Settings) 20x256 S.Vieri T40-1541

Small sample size means a 2% difference after 150 games isn't anywhere good enough to know which is better. Aborting tests that don't look promising while finishing those that do also introduce some bias as the results you end up publishing will be more lucky than average. Have to agree. 2% is 14 E...
