Re: My longest game (LC0)

Obviously, something is very wrong with that version of Lc0... :shock:

Re: Eight-Headed Monsters X 8CPU

Maybe I am reading this wrong, but I think Graham deserves more respect than you seem to be showing him. Yes you are reading this wrong, and I don't like your "holier than thou" attitude.

No graphics card for Lc0/DeusX ?
No graphics card, as this computer was originally built with only chess in mind.
Looked at the Round 1 results : Lc0 and DeusX have disappeared.

So I was right, it was a joke to include them... (?)

Re: 100 Elo nosedive

https://lczero.org/ I imagine someone will say it does not really mean that. But that sure is what the graph looks like. I wonder if someone made a naughty patch.

The statistics corroborate your theory
Very interesting !

But now I wonder, and why didn't I think of this before ? --->

In the famed 10 released games AlphaZero vs. SF8, a few remarkable moves by AlphaZero were found and analysed.

Does anybody know why this site, which also contained the Neghina studies, no longer works ?

TIA !
