Re: Can somebody explain what makes Leela as strong as Komodo?

Like lkaufman, I think it's mainly a successful exploitation of hardware. I look at the AlphaZero paper in two quite different ways. As a scientific contribution, the important thing is the generality of the algorithm . The importance ... is to demonstrate the method can work when little human know...

Previously Leela was known as garbage in endgame, but thanks to tablebase rescoring, 30xx endgame is much improved.
If the Leela team keeps using tablebase rescoring, they should call it e.g. Lc1, not Lc0.

Erdo is a tester of Deus X, Alp is for Alpha and Deu is Deus X. The text strings are cut short, but it appears that Erdo was tesing an Alpha version of Deus X in one of the games.
I see. Makes sense. Thanks, Ted.

I found in my kibitzing database 2 interesting games, played on playchess.com:
Okay, but who is White exactly? What do "alp" and "deu" mean?

after 93 games at 5+5, test30 is stable at -70 elo vs SF10 & -21 elo vs SF10+book (perfect2017/2018). will attach pgn's later, going to try to get a decent sample of SF10 vs SF10+book results.
Any more news, yanquis?

Re: Smallnet (128x10) run1 progresses remarkably well

Again I hope TB rescoring will not be part of test40, now we know what A0's C(s) was. As far as I know it will be. Why shouldn't it? TB rescoring has been shown to actually help, unlikely a lot of proposed changes to Lc0... How has it been shown to actually help? Many things were changed in test30 ...

After Lc0 0.20 is released, test35 will be retired in favour of test40, a SE net of the same dimensions as test10 and test30, i.e. 256x20. That run is widely expected to significantly improve on test10.

I hope tablebase rescoring was removed for this run1.
