Re: SPCC: Testrun of SF nnue gk200627 finished

Of course your results can be valid. I never said they weren't. I was addressing another issue though, which basically boils down to your tests suffering from "noise" due to a significant percentage of weak moves as a result of low nps. This means that you will have to run many more games in order t...

Re: SPCC: Testrun of SF nnue gk200627 finished

You should not run 20 games at the same time on a 12 core (24 thread) laptop. The conditions won't be the same (unreliable results). That is not true. All engines run slower, if more than 12 threads are used. Thats clear. But this means not a distortion. Only a slowdown. I opened 20x Stockfish 11-e...

Re: can stockfish with book beat leela without book?

The top contenders in such competitions consist of narrow books targeted at stockfish and filled with killer lines. I wouldn't say that a good wider and useful book is anywhere near 100 elo.

Re: Aquarium IDEA question.

It is virtually undocumented which is why fanboys have created videos. The software is also extremely buggy. If you don't mind supporting such bad behavior with money, go for it. The company will never get anymore of mine. As a computer programmer myself, calling the software a disgrace, is too kin...

Re: Komodo MCTS

Stability issues due to MC developments? That's a bit troublesome! Since MC is integrated in the same exe I take it that subscribers will have to wait longer for the next installment of Komodo standard as well.

Komodo MCTS

It has been a silent few months for Komodo to make progress on MCTS. I was wondering whether or not Mark and Larry deem MCTS ready to have a go at the next TCEC Premier division instead of the standard Komodo? The latter one is not likely to pose any real danger to Stockfish so why not have their ne...

Re: LC0 ver 0.16.0 ID 10520 vs Deep Shredder 13 x64 40/4

What is your reasoning for keeping it enabled? Common test protocol and practice is with PONDER OFF for good reason. I am sure a man with your experience knows this all too well. In this case only Shredder is allowed to ponder during the opponents time. Furthermore, while pondering Shredder will com...
