Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

2 I suggest that Centaur player should read the first lines of multiple engines but not explore them back and forth. 3 the possibility to withdraw the move after LC0 reply is another advantage for human player. Regardless of the rules the aim of similar experiments is as follows: despite having hug...

Re: TCEC S15, END of an ERA event is much more Brutal than I thought!

A new possible challenge for LC0. in his latest book Garry Kasparov still states that “Centaur mode” is still the best expression of strength in chess games. I am doubtful after witnessing how LC0 defeated Stockfish. In order to test Kasparov's ipothesis I would suggest the following challenge: GM ...

Another position that I suggest to add is this. Very very difficult for a program to find b3 in order to reply on Nc5 with Rb1! and b4 (what does Leela play?)

Re: Lc0 with latest test30 nets is vastly superior positionally

Larry Kaufmann chose a position similar to this: it is a very difficult task for a program to find a2-a4! Also for today's standards.
Only Komodo finds it, neither Fritz 11 or Stockfish

And the newer nets are getting stronger day by day, may be +30 to +50 elo.
I don't believe in this progression.
Elo growth is not deterministic, but for sure not 30-50 Elo points daily
