Re: How did CCC 6 end??

Yes. Shouldn't CCC have an archive of games somewhere?

Re: " End of an Era" is coming?

... I believe I read on Discord that 'AntiFish' is actually a tool developed for Stockfish to help them find and correct weaknesses in Stockfish. Not the only tool used to improve Stockfish, but one of them. Yeah, looks like an idea to "help improve Stockfish's original evaluation function", but no...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

Apparently Demis Hassabis said AlphaZero does not suffer from these endgame problems (One of the Leela developers mentions this on a youbtube video). Are there any AlphaZero games played to the endgame with mate to confirm this? I think we'd need to see this to believe it. Right now it looks like D...

Re: Playing the endgame like a boss !!

I've seen on chess.com how leela checkmated with the queen and also with knight and bishop. But always before the 50. move. The problem must therefore be related to this 50. moves rule. Yeah, it's interesting that it converted KRvK in exactly 49 moves. I think there was another 49 move conversion t...

Re: SF mates Leela in 25 moves at CCC

I think 5. .. Nd7 is just bad, and this may be an example of CCC choosing an unbalanced opening. The game stats from Chessbase actually don't look too horrible, but with best play White is better. The game follows known theory at least through 13. b4. Black had a few chances to deviate: for example...

How many book moves were used ?
Three. 4.Nf3 on are their own moves.

Obviously CCC was not using the EGT to adjudicate.
CCC uses TBs to adjudicate ... draws (but not wins).

I'm sure they intend all engines to use TBs, so if Lc wasn't it would have been an accident.
