Stefan, are you yourself training the Leela Cerebellum book?
No. All work for the Cerebellums (Lc0 and Stockfish) is done by Thomas Zipproth. I do the testruns, only.
I am glad Thomas is still active. The 2 books together are a devastating combination.

Its a great moment for chess. The 3600 mark has been passed. It seems like 3500 was reached only a short time ago.

Re: My predicted 3rd Gen threadripper prices

Should I pay off my car or buy a 64 core Threadripper? (Joking) If I remember correctly a 64 core Intel would cost $10,000. So $4,000 does look great.

What they call contempt, should be labeled "initiative", left alone and should be symmetrical. Does this...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

I find myself wondering what Bobby Fischer would think of the tournament bearing his name. I think he would have a huge amount of problems with it. He would want to be paid. Perhaps that's why it was usually called chess 960 during his lifetime and shortly after, as well as Fischer's political view...
