Re: What is the purpose of chess engines?

I don't like lczero participating in monthly blitz tournament. Some endgames took far too many moves and they were played with an increment.
Only thing what lczero was doing was avoiding draws by fifty moves rule. So we had to wait until there were no pawns left over.

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

Skipper zero points. At least it played all games without problems, I saw Skipper playing badly so I thought I might have played better myself. But looks like that's not the case. Me playing with white against Skipper. Time control 5 minutes. [Event "?"] [Site "?"] [Date "11-11-2019"] [Round "-"] [...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney November

I used same dotnet construction on hgm's server giving no problems. So something is different. Maybe something has changed on your end. I know that you had a bad computer crash several months ago, and that you had to setup everything new on another PC, after this event you didn't play on HGM's serv...

Might also be I did not use the right conection string. I used this one: winboard -zp -ics -icshost nightmare-chess...
