Re: BrainLearn

Yet as for difficult tactical positions time to solution doesn't get as much better, as one is used to see with old-fashioned learning files like the ones, e.g. SF-PA had. Especially for Zugzwang- studies it's still some kind of luck, if and how much hash- entries are stored usefully or not, depend...

Have fun!
Thanks, Andrea!

Works without move- history (opening moves leading to position of interest) now too, that's fine!

Here's what Stockfish-dev gives with MultiPV = 2 in the position after 24...Rec8 25. Nd2 r1r3k1/3b1ppp/8/1p1p4/nPpP1BP1/4P2P/P2N1P2/2Q3K1 b - - 2 2 -3.31 2... h5 3. gxh5 c3 4. Nb3 c2 5.

Re: 29 Alpha-Beta's against Leela...

My Stockfish-dev now agrees that 25. Nd2 should be met with 25...h5. In fact, the response is strong enough that 25. Nd2 has been replaced with 25. Na3. So now I have 24...Rec8 25. Na3 c3, and so 24...c3 and 24...Rec8 are back to being equivalent by transposition. Can you confirm this? Not quite, L...

Hi Lous! A deep new search with Stockfish-dev suggests that c3 might indeed be the "best" move here: -3.69 1... c3 2. Na3 Rec8 3. Nc2 Nb2 4. a3 h5 5. f3 hxg4 6. hxg4 Nc4 7. Kh2 Ra6 8.

Re: Mate in 17

Black appears to be in zugzwang. Most engines won't find it then. Even with null-move pruning disabled, Stockfish isn't finding anything ... yet: SugaR started with empty hash, 24 threads of a 12x3GHz CPU, 32Gb hash, nullmove disabled, ICCF3 (int.MV- mode 8): 1N1n4/2BPbpPb/3r1p2/2p1kP2/2p1p1P1/2p1P...

Re: a strange analysis by stockfish

Forward/backward analysis isn't even needed here. Stockfish-dev with 6-man tables finds a tablebase win in a direct search from the root position in about 7.5 minutes I know, I just went into the lines to see the Losomosov- positions asap and take the way to them backward in hash, not so much as fo...
