Re: Test Position

Wow. Nice Louis! Score is completely winning for Stoofvlees and Stock should have suffered a humiliating defeat :P (Kaissa is at +5.17 now) Credit belongs to someone else. See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/fishcooking/9VB1lBKQXFY Thanks Louis, I had seen the post but I had not not looked ...

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

I had a colleague with knowledge of older systems etcetera and he told me, if you get blue screens, it usually is something with the hardware. In my case he was right, my computer eventually died even though it had been running for less than a year. If not hardware, maybe something basic, system rou...

Might be an excellent position for Lc0 on fast hardware... As I was typing this (McCain X4) - really not sure of this is a good search or ...

Re: evaluation that usually go up when you are winning

Evaluation staying planted at +13 only means the engine is unable to find a clear-cut game continuation where white forces the win of more material. Which is normal because.. well, it's almost the starting position and the search tree is still immense:) Good evaluation should go up not only based o...

Re: Vachier-Lagrave - Naiditsch, GRENKE 2019 R3 : 25.Nf6+ !

Thanks Louis, I can't really test that without tablebases on my computer :) I would have thought that Vincent always tests with TB loaded though. But maybe it is just that Stockfish at that time saw things differently. And Dann also quickly saw 0.00 scores. For OTB play still a good move though and ...

Re: Vachier-Lagrave - Naiditsch, GRENKE 2019 R3 : 25.Nf6+ !

in response to rn2kr2/1pp1b1p1/4p3/1Pp1P2p/p1P1NP1P/P7/1B4P1/3RR1K1 w - - bm Nf6+; -> Not sure it's enough to win ! This is still (a) Kaissa IV but much closer to Stockfish than the above so less bugs than in that version. I think it is a draw but enough chances to go wrong because of the singular p...

Re: Drawish endgame

Yes, you are probably right. In the position at the end of Vincent's PV Black has a Knight against a passed pawn, but they seem to keep each other in equilibrium 8/2n2pp1/2K1k2p/3n4/6P1/P4P2/7P/4B3 w - - Engine: Kaissa IV NoContempt (512 MB) by T.

Re: Drawish endgame

I have one deep search with a somewhat rising score, so I think it is promising. But Stockfish probably should have a better kingwalk score or something. I did not get the high score at the end of your PV for some reason, maybe because I had no tablebases, but I get much more drawish score, could be...
