Re: Et Mortuus Est Rex

Hi Unfortunately I didn't manage to hold Tigran 2.4n x64 with the black pieces playing a variation of the Old Indian defense .... Tigran is extremely territorial and quite aggressive which resulted is a series of minor blunders from my side accumulating to distorted position for black and losing th...

Re: Et Mortuus Est Rex

Among the 2400 CCRL level engines, Romichess, Gaia, Gosu and Ares GB 1.1 are reputed to have more interesting styles, with some knowledge built-in. Perhaps, Tigran belongs in that group as well. :)

Dr. Deeb, if you're ever lacking for a real challenge, you're welcome to take on Nezh, the ultimate attacking anti-human (and anti-computer!) genius -- just click on the link in my sig below. :)

Re: Et Mortuus Est Rex

It's always interesting to see what the engine will come up with on its own, but positionally-deficient 2400-level programs usually tend to play crummy, exploitable openings on their own. Even stronger A-B engines will struggle in that phase. Dr Deeb's job probably won't get any harder that way.

Re: Et Mortuus Est Rex

Dr. Deeb, you're clearly an old-school anti-engine specialist, who can steer the opening into favorable closed, strategic opening lines where Simplex is clearly not of 2400 strength. I hope someday you could share your many instructive wins (over the years) against engine opponents. It's become a lo...

Re: Et Mortuus Est Rex

Many engines in that 2400 CCRL (or lower) range have very serious positional weaknesses, allowing for competent anti-computer specialists to thrive against them. Tactically, those engines are much stronger than 2400, but things aren't so easy for them when the human anti-computer specialist (HACS) s...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

Sorry, but these long book lines are obfuscating the engines' styles. The question is not if the engine would play the amazing move that you see (because many others would have played it as well if given the chance) but if it leads the game to the positions where that happens, instead of the book m...
