Re: Crystal, the new tactical monster

So where do you get a copy of crystal? I got lost on Github trying to find it, it's possible you end downloading some Stockfishdev source instead of Crystal :shock: I did that too. This will get you the right source code using git: git clone --single-branch --branch crystal https://github.com/jhell...

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

I can't help but mention one issue I have with your article. You compare depth and nodes of Leela with other engines, which mean completely different things in MCTS and AB engines. Thanks for your feedbach - but my tournament report wasn't about Leela's "depth and nodes" comparison with other engin...

But in the modern day of age it is sexist to say mean to a girl so you must change it to boy or you'll end in prison.

Re: Out of the Kai 450 positions, 99 not found by SF

What does "best move" or "right move" even mean here? Surely there are many moves in most of these positions that are equal with correct play---likely all leading to draws. The "best move" is the one that makes it the hardest for the opponent to find the "correct play", which in some positions may ...

Re: Out of the Kai 450 positions, 99 not found by SF
