Toga 1.3 Checkov 2 Settings

Hi Eelco, What are your Checkov settings? I'm curious as always. Hi Marc, I appreciate the interest! The Toga Checkov settings were made to solve one of the combination testpositions from Michael Gurevich, No. 277 from a game by Valery Chekov (Чехов). So the name "Chec...

Re: From Russia With Love........

Latest news from KasparovChess guestbook: Sergey Markov (SmarThink) got source codes of Strelka from Osipov, compiled them and says it is not a clone. Well, on my part I think that I then have to apologize to Juri Osipov for suspecting Strelka to be a Rybka joke in a previous post, and I very much ...

Toga 1.3x4 Default needs 18 seconds to Find 1. ... Rf3, Toga 1.3 "Checkov" , with Material = 100 so the second version, finds it in four seconds on single core Athlon 2009 MHz, 256 Mb hash. After a while Toga Checkov thinks that 2. Nd5 is the best reply. [D]r1b2r2/pp2q1k1/3p2pp/1Np1p1b1/2PnP3/2NQ4/P...

Re: Preliminary list of participants for ICT 7

Well, I explicitly inquired if the rules allowed it. It seems they do as long as it are totally unrelated programs, as uMax and Joker are. Unfortunately 2 times 0 is still 0. It seems all other contestants have at least 400 rating points more as the last measured rating of my engines. I am a bit di...

Re: TO BE OR NOT TO BE

Reply from Vasik in Rybka Forum: I already got some emails about this. Of course, I have no idea what the author has done, but my first impression is a pretty good one. Sure, the engine is totally raw and needs a lot of nuts-and-bolts work, but that's something that any competent programmer can do. ...

Re: New russian engine in shredder gui

It does not work. Play some moves and then freeze. No PV, nothing. Even if f it is not a clone of Rybka, as some are afraid, anyway is buggy. Why bothers? Shredder gui is excellent, every engine works there smoothly, but this new one. Returning to really working stuff regards Fernando I installed S...

Re: CCRL update (4th May 2007)

... we also remove games where it appears the book has given a decisive advantage. Wow, that sounds like a bad idea. The more subjective decisions (bad book line) have to be made, the more chance there is for inadvertent bias. Can you really force yourself to examine the opening with the same skept...

Toga - Deep Sjeng continued at 20 minutes + 10 seconds

I ran some more matches of Toga Blueberry settings against Deep Sjeng 2.5. I can not directly compare the results with the first match because I changed more than one parameter, but the results have to stand on their own. What I changed was the timecontrol, I went from game in 15 minutes + ten secon...
