Re: Leela (lack of) endgame technique?

[/quote] I'm quite skeptical about doing no rollouts also in late endgame. The search needs to choose a move (out of many winning moves) that leads to a sure win. I strongly doubt the NN can learn this for all kind of possible, and sometimes very difficult to win, endgame situations. [/quote] Is Lee...
