Re: Dann Corbit, where can I download your Opening Book ?

This contest is probably a much stronger measure of book performance, because the programs are all the same, to the only variable that changes is the opening book:

Re: Dann Corbit, where can I download your Opening Book ?

The new opening books were revolutionized starting with the Cerebellum book.
From that point forward, opening books became enormously strong, giving about 50 Elo to the top engines.

Here is Sedat's current contest:

Re: DDR5 RAM is coming in 2021

Haha, everytime AMD doubles their core count I hear the champagne corks popping here. ;) -- Srdja I crack my knuckles and jump for joy when a new AMD super server comes out. My 3970x saves me a boatload of money when I am analyzing, I almost never run my old server room servers around the clock lik...

Re: Dann Corbit, where can I download your Opening Book ?

I will see if I can find it. If you want the best books, technology has come a very long way and the books from Sedat's contests are pretty well guaranteed to be stronger. Any top ten book from one of Sedat's book contests will beat a book written twenty years ago that was derived from super GM and ...

Re: larger nets for SF?

It appears that my point was missed entirely. If you examine the Elo of the LC0 nets, the larger the net, the larger the Elo. And it isn't close. The big nets CLOBBER the smaller ones. I think that bigger and bigger nets should be constructed until it is no longer true. Similarly with SF. Yes, Albe...

Re: Honey 13.1 is around the corner ...

This post is genius.
The same thing is true (for instance) for things like the Calculus. Newton and Leibniz did not invent Calculus. They merely discovered it.

Re: Larry Kaufman

Larry has added another success to his career. Dragon Komodo won the First TCEC Swiss Tournament. Congrats to Komodo Team (Mark and Larry) https://wiki.chessdom.org/TCEC_Swiss_1 Those who say 22 games less should not forget that the world chess champion is determined by 12 games. Thanks. Other than...
