Re: Unfair Poll

You take it way too serious... All these discussions in these threads sound very passionate, if instead of fighting these people put this passion into computer chess, as a team I'm sure they could come up with some program that made NNUE technology look like a "Hello world" beginner program by comp...

Re: SFNNUE Fails!! In this Positions!!

What situation ? There's a mate on the board, the losing player is wasting everyone's time! many play till end. What part is "the end" is what we don't agree with, I say that if there's a mate on the board, the game is already over. The mating player has won, the other should resign. But its doesno...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

Do you feel ready now for a re-match CC game with Ovyron? I think we should wait for the equivalent of contempt for SF NNUE or something else to prevent shuffling before trying this. But it would be fun to do another one :) I'm up whenever you want :) , after NNUE (being able to analyze interactive...

Re: INTERESTING Engines with Unique Styles (Unlike SF)

This happens with many older engines when I left chess programming in 2010.. They were beatable (at least by my chess engine OliThink) and fun. Now they are 300-500 ELO stronger, not beatable and boring. What happened? It turns out style is all about mistakes and inaccuracies. Nothing else. Somethi...

Re: Unfair Poll

1. CTF should continue as it is now. Or 4. Make it so that all the people that voted 2 on this thread can't see it anymore, as if it was closed - wouldn't that solve all problems? :roll: Or is it a case of "we can't allow something we dislike to exist even if it's enjoyed by some people"? Some peop...

Re: SFNNUE Fails!! In this Positions!!

Even if known or not known only an idiot chooses the longest path. Only an idiot would not resign in that situation. If I have mate in 10 against you, and you're not resigning, I can have my fun and mate you in 49 or any amount of moves I desire. I've won the game, it's my choice how I win it. If y...

Re: Unfair Poll

This has shown the failure of democracy when more than half the people voting don't realize the solution to their problem is to stop visiting CTF. They want a world where either "they visit CTF and only find people are talking about stuff they like" or "CTF is gone." When "they don't visit CTF" is a...

Re: SFNNUE Fails!! In this Positions!!

Time is always a factor in game play. It's only a factor when the result of the game isn't known. When it's known one side has won the game, then time doesn't matter, and it's the responsibility of the losing player to resign when this is the case to save time. The winning player has already won on...

Re: Asking to people who believe Leela NN is a book, what they think about SF NN now?

It's pointless to argue with people who don't care about making gross logical mistakes in their reasoning. It's pointless to argue with people who don't care about other people's gross logical mistakes in their reasoning, if they make them, to explain their flaws, to educate them. We're not here to...
