Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

2)For the surprise with 2.Qf3 I think that surprise can work mainly in fast time control. It may be interesting if it is possible to beat strong engines in correspondence game with 1.e4 e5 2.Qf3 when the engines use some hours per move. I suspect that it is impossible. Would you have made this stat...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

Note that it is impossible to keep good lines as secret for a long time because there are sites that give games. Note that If 3.Bc4 is bad then I expect black to fight for a win in ICCF world championship. In the following game I do not see black try to win but this tournament only started in 2017 h...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

Being the best when other do not know about it is not fun But all the top chess players have a secret preparation and they don't share it with others, lines prepared several years ago one day have a chance to be played and take someone by surprise and win a game, otherwise, you can't find informati...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

I do not see the point of claiming that Giuoco Piano has been busted when people do not give specific lines. If the target is to beat other players then it is better to say nothing because now I believe people are going to use stockfish and lc0 to analyze 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 and share their anal...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

There is no fun in that kind of competition. People find enjoyment in being the best in something that is hard, and believe me, making a book that is the best today is really hard, the competition is fierce and people are coming up with books that destroy everything in the past and get really thoug...

Re: evaluation that usually go up when you are winning

Evaluation staying planted at +13 only means the engine is unable to find a clear-cut game continuation where white forces the win of more material. Which is normal because.. well, it's almost the starting position and the search tree is still immense:) Good evaluation should go up not only based o...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

I wonder what are the most popular lines in games between humans that turned out to be losing lines and what is the basis for the confidence that they are losing lines. I would say that these are all pretty good candidates: rnbqkbnr/pppppp1p/8/6p1/4P3/8/PPPP1PPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - acd 41; bm d4; c3 ...

Re: How many elo do ponder equals to

Engine A ponder while engine B doesn't. Advantage +/- 50 elo. Doubling is worth more. Now the question is if it's likely engine A equalize engine B in fast time formats or who got the upper hand. The effectiveness of ponder is probably higher in shorter time controls than in longer. Do you put your...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

Can you point me to the direction I can find the refutation of the Italian game by white? What are the books I can download or what are the lines by black that refute white? Sorry, I'm contending and I'm planning to buy a decent GPU by the end of August, so the less this is known about, the better....

Re: Where are the funs of Leela?

If they figure out how to get GPU cards the do alpha beta, or they get GPU cards to do full recursion without wait, then the Alpha beta searcher engines will mop the floor with the NN engines, laughing all the way to the bank. The compute cycles of the GPU cards are orders of magnitude higher than ...
