Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions

A lot of TB positions have been shown in the previous posts where TB can find the win but not the Stockfish. In those positions, the better side already had certain advantage to win. Practically, you cant create a 32 men TB that also stores chess knowledge about choosing a move that maximise winnin...

Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions

Right. I don't know why others aren't seeing this (obvious) logic. A real 32 man tablebase already knows the outcome of the game in the beginning, so what the hell is a "complication trick" (which someone mentioned) going to do to save Stockfish? What will happen, in *EVERY* game, is this: 1. Playe...

Re: Why does TCEC use unbalanced opening?

I'd like to see TCEC return to using balanced openings, with perhaps a 6 moves per side limit. And 96 draws out of 100. Do you want the best quality chess, or just artificial entertainment? Best quality chess is agreeing to a draw right after starting the clock (both 32 men tbs). And frankly, I can...

Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions

If there were no opening book, Stockfish will be minimally able to draw another Stockfish or Leela in 95% of games. If Stockfish is playing against 32 men TB, the extreme condition would be 50 draw 50 losses , which is within 200 elo. On the other hand, current Stockfish with contempt may be slight...

Re: Perfect chess engine elo ( 32 men TB) can be within 200 of Stocfish in Tcec LTC conditions

The comparison is silly. You don't need to be able to play every single legal 32-men position perfectly to never lose a game from the start position as white. You only need to draw or win from positions that follow sensible white moves your book/engine chooses to play. If black plays to equalize, i...
