Re: Komodo vs GM Smerdon knight odds match

Sounds exciting. Thanks for the heads up.
Ballpark score could be 3.5 - 2.5 win for Komodo.
All draws plus 1 win for the engine.

why dont you play vs Lco or other NN engines?
I'm sure he did but can't publish the
shameful outcome after being brutally demolished.
Fortress positions would be easily avoided by NN engines even if played under bullet/lightning time controls.

Re: NNs seem to solve the Gusev Qxe5!! easily.

i have no access to a relevant analysis by any NN because i dont use a seperate grafics-card...imo its pretty easy to make (queen)-sacs without having "-9" in your head ;-) i predicted a superiority of NN's in approximately 5 years or less and i still dont see why this will be not the case...

Re: 1.g4 opening is losing?

I saw at CCC (chess.com), they were using big hardware so maybe result was relevant.
Lc0 as black only drew against SF after SF as white played 1.g4 (0.5 - 0.5)
But SF (as black) convincingly won after Lc0 (as white) played 1.g4. (0-1)

edit: name of engines

Re: Winning after Qf6+!

I am confused. If I didn't miss something from this thread, After Ng5 of white, both Nxd4 and Nd6 (on Nxa3 line) of black was already posted by Peter and both ends up in a win. So IMO, both Ng4 and Bd2 wins for white. No, Mike, you missed Louis' fortress- line after 26...Nxd6 (!) which I had to be ...

Re: Winning after Qf6+!

In the meantime I gave the Nd6- line of Louis' SF, leading to a fortress, some Backward with Honey X6 FD, the fortress detection code from Joseph Ellis seems to work here really fine, Honey keeps the 0.00 in hash back to the root position after 26...Nd6. Yet the output doesn't show much because of ...
