Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Yeah, I'd say that if the neural net weights had some serious human creative selection process involved on their creation then they should be protected by copyright. In the realm of opening chess books, the human creative selection process part can happen when she makes a selection of games to add t...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

I wouldn't trust Lc0's evaluation for anything, remember that if you follow blindly what it recommends against 1.d4 it suggests a losing line.

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

Are you saying that it'd be fine to distribute the commercial opening chess book Goi 6.2.1 CTG (which costs $22) because the chess moves it contains and move rankings it contains can't be copyrighted?

I always thought distributing something like that would be piracy.

Re: "Fat fritz" stronger than Stockfish ?

However, if you're buying those numbers from Chessbase then distributing them would be piracy, lest I can argue that I can buy Fritz 17 and distribute it because at its core it's just 0s and 1s in some order of some binary file that can't be copyrighted because it was produced by some mechanical pro...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

I think that we do not know because chess engines are not strong enough to tell us. I'd rather say "we know, but can't prove it." It's like, I know that 1.e4 doesn't lose, after 1.e4 is played, no string of moves exists by black that ensure white loses, or, the position after 1.e4 isn't a "black to...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

I'm willing to defend 1.g4 against anybody that seriously think it is losing, and I guarantee that I can draw them. The main reason it's ? is because you give any chances of winning whatsoever, so it's only black that can win if you're not careful. And I'm not saying something like "1.g4 is a draw w...

Re: Winning after Qf6+!

Please stick to working on your depth 22 opening book, so that you can win chess games with your special moves. That seems important to you. The point is that if Qf6 is a win, or a draw, you can find the truth about its status, and the most important mainlines (so that you win/draw against anything...

Re: Winning after Qf6+!

Lol guys, lern2analyze, leaving any engine analyzing overnight has always been a waste of time, it gives the illusion of being good because of so many positions, but these discussions could have taken place in Rybka 3 times and people would have said things like "Rybka doesn't see it after X nodes, ...

Re: Python Easy Chess GUI

I was wondering if it'd be possible to make Python Easy Chess GUI accessible from a web page? chessdb.cn/queryc_en/ has shown that you don't need to download or install anything, you go there and it works, and works well. ChessDB looks to me like "the future" and I dream of a day where people don't ...

Re: It's here ...Honey X6

I turn it off because I use chess engines for analysis and rarely for game play. And when I play them, the contempt is not important anyway. And when I analyze, I want the right answer. Do you analyze games to find the best moves against opponents you're playing? In those cases what is the "right a...
