Re: the annihilation of Stockfish with queen sacrifice 2018

Possibly the most boring game I've ever watched - YMMV. Describing it as an "annihilation" is a stretch at best.

Hi Evert,

Clearly elo++ is only going to increment by 1. You need to add a for loop e.g.

CuteChess-cli 64 Bit Windows Binary?

It looks like CuteChess-cli 0.8.3 is the latest version. However, there doesn't seem to be a 64 bit windows executable on the main site:

Does anyone have a 64 bit windows version?

Thanks,

Re: Parallel search/LazySMP question

I suspect LazySMP is the "free-market" solution to parallel search. By this I mean, people may think they will be able to organize disparate agents to be more efficient, but in the end the simple exchange of information via the hash will ensure close to optimum search.

Re: AlphaGo Zero And AlphaZero, RomiChess done better

I remember the experiments at the time. Could you briefly explain what you did? From memory I recall you did the following: At the end of the game you parsed the list of moves and adjusted the score up or down a certain number of centipawns based on the outcome. You then hashed each position and sto...

Re: Historic Milestone: AlphaZero

I'm gobsmacked.

There's a bit of me that's skeptical, but since they've cracked Go I guess it's legitimate.

When will the UCI version be available? I need to play with it.
