Re: One more issue with king safety/attack for Stockfish

Nezh finds Qg6 quickly and sticks with it.

Code: Select all

20...Qg6 
  Black is clearly winning: -+ (-6.01 ++)  Depth: 28/41   00:00:05  41592kN
With White on move 20, it soon recognizes Black is better and wants to play Rh1, with a disadvantage, instead of the clearly losing Nxe4.

It's enough to be
1). Allowable in public opinion
2). Allowable in the press
3). Allowable to make investigations.
4). Can be used in court corruptly even if not officially allowed.allowed.
Yes, that's where we could be all headed.

How could they video cam him in the toilet? Is that legal? Is it moral?

I agree. It's even more disturbing than the cheating itself.

FYI, here in the US (don't know about elsewhere) evidence obtained illegally is not allowable in court.

Re: Sting SF 15 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

The "problems" are usually endgame studies with deep solutions, often involving zugzwang. This is where Sting excels, its raison d'etre, if you will.

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

I think that if you substitute 'equalize/equality/whatever' for 'bust', it will all make sense. 8-)

Re: Komodo MCTS

The Lc0 endgame trolling is supposedly due to how its NN are trained, if my understanding is correct - (and that's always doubtful :| ), although one would hope that with few pieces on the board the MCTS search wouldn't have that much trouble finding a more direct win. Now, what could be Komodo's tr...

Re: Why there is no interest in Computer with odds Vs Humans match?

Based on your work with Lc0, what would have to be done to make Lc0 play handicap chess well, other than revert to an old network like 11248? Can you explain why 11248 could beat GM Naroditsky at piece odds, while the new networks just blunder left and right when trying to give knight or more odds?...
