Is it still chess if the ability to repeat a position is penalized?
Of course it is, the same way that it's still chess when you use the Sofia Chess Rules and/or the "Bilbao" scoring system.

So the question now becomes whether top correspondence players will just give up, or whether they will favor some change or reform to address the problem.
Many already gave up. By 2017, more than 10,000 players were still active in my DB. In the last three years, less than 6,000 remain.

Re: correspondence chess in the age of NNUE

At no point did I mention how many correspondence players there are. So I never implied any % of players, just the amount I saw at each draw rate.

Re: correspondence chess in the age of NNUE

Taking out really weak players (probably not even using a computer) the draw rate for the past three years is already close to 60%. If you take out weak players, like those who only use a computer to check some positions, it raises over 75%. We're still talking over 140,000 games for just three year...

Re: SPCC: Testrun of Stockfish 210117 finished

It falls inside the margin of error, but ncm testing also indicates that something went wrong on the 11th. Not the worst we've seen lately, though.

If you're hurting for space, you can use nanozip to compress PGNs, instead of 7zip. For example:

16cores.7z is 87.3MB.
16cores.nz is 65.6MB.

From what I can see, this is the only list that offers all games for download.

Have you considered making 60+15 available too? It's roughly the same size and quality.
