Re: which would take more moves to win

But MY guess, based on looking at lots of GM games, is that a knight won't be enough against perfect play assuming that a GM is playing the stronger side. Perfect play might well show a knight wins. But can a human complete the game with zero mistakes? Seems beyond implausible based on existing gam...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

I believe that the difference is bigger in go but note that I looked at games between children who are significantly stronger than the random mover and are not beginners in the meaning that they have some experience(for example israel championship for girls under 9 preliminary stage) and a signific...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

Crazy Stone and Zen have no place in this plot, they are too much to the left with an Elo of 1900. Not sure how go elos work but 1900 seems too weak. Absolute Elo values don't matter, only their differences. Add 500 to every rating, if it feels better. That there is 1000 Elo points difference betwe...

Re: Go has fallen to computer domination?

To me the most relevant are the pro human comments on the games, it seems regular 8-9p professionals are more respectful towards AlphaGo, while super 9p say it's still weak. These dan ratings are a bit confusing, but tentative Elo-like rating data seem to show that the difference between super 9p a...

Re: Something Hikaru Said

Can we have the handicap book? I would just like to have the one without the piece. I myself lost already to engines in blitz games with piece odds like 5 years ago. And I remember watching naka play this handicap engine in bullet. He won with rooks odds but sightly lost with the knight odds. Time i...
