Re: Chess.com 2018 computer chess championship

I find DrCliche attitude absolutely appalling. You may find me suspicious, but I think we might have here a strange case of Dr Cliche and Mr Grant... Strange case of two competent people in the same room I would be not surprised if you are talking here about a physical room What (if anything) can I...

I don’t believe this is brute force calculation so it makes what AlphaZero did even more impressive!
So maybe it just decided to take a risk.

btw., FIDE rules of chess are quite adamant on this: an existing mate on the board overrides any other possible outcome.
Sometimes it takes me more than 50 moves to mate with bishop and knight.
So when my opponent claims the 50 move rule after 50 moves I can show him this rule, no?

Re: Fire 5 question ...

In the meantime, I've recently finished a broadcast system using cutechess, pgn4web, palview, 40H-PGN tools, AutoVer... Currently finishing testing (and it's running perfectly) via a small round robin tournament with SF 8 and Komodo 10.2 (the top 8 from CCRL 40/40): http://www.chesslogik.com/cccc/l...

From your posts and claims it looks like you are already somewhere between 6500 and 7000.

Re: Return Match for Komodo

This afternoon I tried to play a couple of games against Komodo with only time handicap. Unfortunately, as I seemingly am not in a good form at all, I fared rather poor. Conditions: latest Komodo 10.1, kindly provided by Komodo team, strictly keeping TC, engine output hidden, 4 cores with hyperthre...

Re: Komodo strikes first at the TCEC Superfinal

Bc2 wins in all lines and it was in SF pv moves earlier, somehow it played Kg4. Well, if it was that simple and obvious, Stockfish would have played it ! Maybe you should play instead of Stockfish. :) The winning line was in SF pv as early as move 60 including the bizarre 70 Ke6! as can be seen fro...

Re: Komodo strikes first at the TCEC Superfinal

I can't imagine how SF screwed that up. On both alternative boards it was obvious that both sides saw a forced win. This looks like a bug hit somewhere. And yet no one has figured out exactly where and how Stockfish went wrong ! So why don't you just admit that it was brilliant defensive play by Ko...
