Re: TCEC Season 9

We already know the result, more or less. 52% versus 48% you care seriously??

This is a problem.

Re: A Blast from the Past: »neutral« books for variety

In 2008, I created an experimental version of the Balanced-16.ctg to avoid the Sicilian at all cost, but still to play 1.e4 with white. This was a tricky task which caused me some headache. It was intended for the Playchess engine room fighters, who were sick from these ultra-tuned Najdorf lines in ...

A Blast from the Past: »neutral« books for variety

The opening books under the following link each, were based on specific, carefully compiled (small) databases with the design goals: - more variety: the frequency of e.g. Sicilian or Ruy Lopez is reduced - only top quality games http://members.aon.at/computerschach/links.htm#downloads In Fritz, plea...

Re: a direct comparison of FIDE and CCRL rating systems

That is realistic.
3.150 should be right.
Bitte Frank, was ein 08/15-GM irgendwann im Jahre Schnee in einem Interview gemeint hat soll irgendeine Einschätzung relevant begründen? Shredder 12? Auf welcher Hardware...? Also wirklich, das ist keine vernünftige Grundlage für irgendeine Zahl.

Re: a direct comparison of FIDE and CCRL rating systems

You fail plenty by NOT giving any significant information as for what your method is.

Re: A tribute to Arena GUI.

do you know the command in arena which lets you set the value of pieces ? This can never be a general interface-controlled feature because only a few engines support that, in their individual engine options. If available, it would have to be to set there.

Re: My troubles with MultiPV and Syzygy in Stockfish 7

This problem is familiar to me and it indeed seems being a flaw. If an engine is run in MultiPV(x) mode, it is supposed to deliever x variations sorted by eval, under all circumstances (except the number of legal moves is smaller). E.g. if I set MultiPV(3) but I get only one variation, something is ...
