Re: Vote for Fritz 17 Replacement

You said any move that doesn't lose is a 'best move', I say a 'best move' takes into account the chances that the opponent will blunder. Best is a relative word. technically Albert Silver is right. What u said cannot be said best. Rather a move which exploits opponents weakness. The blunder opponen...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

Re: Database snapshot

2ndly The analysis is based on lines i choose to play with all possible opponent replies and mine. "All possible opponent replies" is the culprit here, because 90% of those moves will not be played, and if they're played you're already in good shape because the opponent missed (say) the top 4 moves...

Okay. I am using SF Dev to analyse now. Lets see what happens.
Was SF dev the engine you used for the analysis above?
