Re: Dragon engine

No updated nets yet, however I expect a lot of work has been done on then since the initial release and
we'll see some updates soon! I believe I read the TCEC version was an update?

Re: Fat Fritz 2

The Chessbase article linked above "Fat Fritz 2: The Best of Both Worlds " gives some ratings, but Stockfish has improved since then, not a selling point. A couple of test positions are shown as well, but only giving times for one run when using a multi-thread analysis is useless, the times to solve...

Re: NNs seem to solve the Gusev Qxe5!! easily.

Or is the big problem for AB engines the trapped rook on H8?

Re: NNs seem to solve the Gusev Qxe5!! easily.

But Stockfish dev(12 November 2019) cannot solve it even after 35 billion nodes searched and 67 ply. It cannot even find the Qxe5 move. Stockfish is known for pruning. Stockfish doesn't "look for the best move", it instead "looks for a move that probably wasn't a bad move". Late move reductions fun...

Re: Any recent examples of strong programs losing with white at longer time controls?

It would be very interesting to know the TC for this game, and where each engine left the book!

Re: KomodoDragon brilliancy Ruy Lopez - Marshall! A marshall reborn?

Prabably 21. Bf3? was the blunder as suggested my droidfish running 10-15 seconds per position. :P Maybe there are other alternatives but I think 21.Bf3 move doens't deserve a "?" tag because it is also a strong move. 29/45 +0.21 Qe1 Bf5 Bf3 Rg8 Re5 Bh3 Nf1 Qg7 Ng3 fxg3 hxg3 Bxe5 Qxe5 Rae8 Qxg7+ Rx...

Re: Interesting Position You Might Enjoy

Same position? Anyway I tried it with a few engines ans they all solved it
but for a few the eval was weird.

Are there any interesting themes in this puzzle? The output with Chest was several
